Sorta' sounds like a Duane Brown situation to me.
Maybe Reid wanted Kolb badly enough to make the reach, thinking that Miami is sitting there waiting to scoop him up.
It's going to be very interesting to see how the Philly QB situation plays out. I'm betting that Kolb is the starting QB in fairly short order. Donovan's days seem to be numbered, IMO, and I don't think Reid hangs his hat on Donovan this year.
Seems like the writing was on the wall last summer, as a matter of fact, with how chilly the air was between Reid and McNabb.
