Kevin Kolb joined Howard Eskin and Ike Reese on WIP-AM in Philadelphia and refuted rumors that he’s engaged in contract talks with the Eagles.
“We haven’t even talked to them as far as I know,” the quarterback said (via Sports Radio Interviews). “That totally blew me away whenever that was reported because it was obviously false. Yeah, that has not been discussed yet.”
The Eagles selected Kolb in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft, and he’s viewed as the franchise’s future QB. Kolb, who appeared in five games in 2009, was thrust into a quarterback triangle when the team added Michael Vick to join him and Donovan McNabb. However, Kolb has remained patient in his role of understudy and is diligently awaiting his chance.
“It’s tough, but I know it’s an even harder situation for the Eagles,” Kolb said. “There are three of us out there that can play, so I am going to keep their feelings in mind and try to remain positive no matter what happens.”
Kolb has one year remaining on his contract, but he said can’t imagine playing anywhere else.
“I feel like I fit in this system so well, and not just the system, but the coaching staff and the players and the personnel all the way around,” he said. “You know, even on the other side of the building with the business side and all of that. I just feel like our personalities really fit well together, we work hard together, and I look forward to taking over this thing one day and working with those guys. I would never wish myself to be anywhere else.”
