According to Adam Kaplan, the Birds have signed Kevin Kolb to a contract extension (through 2011 season now). That is a one-year extension worth over $12 million.
Well, that was not a fun 24 hours. Getting hammered with various real-life/job commitments, and then the site goes under.
For what it’s worth, we’re looking good now. Had to negotiate a new deal with the provider, as some bumps in traffic had exceeded our bandwidth allowance (thanks everyone!).
Draft day looms, what do you want the Birds to do folks?
Via Adam Schefter:
Packers, Eagles have expressed interest in trading up to 10-12 range. But it could depend on how board falls. Good prospects everywhere.
Today the Eagles have made official a trade with the Broncos and Lions. The Eagles have sent away a fifth-round-pick (which the Broncos get) and have received Ernie Sims.
Sims has played well at weakside linebacker for the Lions. He’s 26, and figures to challenge or immediately replace Akeem Jordan there.
Update: Officially the 37th pick in the 2010 draft and either a 3rd or 4th round pick in 2011.
Although he didn’t say it last night, it may very well be that Reid took a similar offer from the Redskins rather than sending McNabb to a wasteland in Oakland or Buffalo. Hopefully some details emerge in the coming days.
The move adds tremendous risk on top of what is already going to be a sea change for the Eagles. If Kolb falters while McNabb thrives in DC, it could be a very unhappy fall in Philly.
2nd round pick this year. 3rd and 4th in 2010. Developing.
Mike Holmgren has not been afraid to make major moves for the Cleveland Browns, and according to Clark Judge he’s on the verge of making another one.
Sheldon Brown and Chris Gocong could both be going to Cleveland in exchange for some sort of draft picks/players package.
Brown has made it public knowledge that he is unhappy with his contract. Gocong has largely been a disappointment as a converted linebacker.

The Eagles President and Chief Operating Officer has had his contract extended for another three years, per the Birds.
