Seattle Seahawks offering Philadelphia Eagles a 1st and a 4th for Kevin Kolb?

If the recent reports are accurate, the Seattle Seahawks offered the Philadelphia Eagles a trade package that included a first-round selection for four-year veteran quarterback Kevin Kolb at some point before the lockout.

This just a year after dealing a third-round pick to San Diego, and switching second-rounders (a difference of 20 slots), for career backup Charlie Whitehurst, who had never started a game in his four seasons with the Chargers but still got a two-year, $8 million contract from the Seahawks. The seeming mistake with Whitehurst -- who, despite starting just two games in 2010, still has a few supporters in the Seattle front office -- might be rectified if a Kolb deal is completed.

Or, given the uncertainty and unpredictability of the quarterback position, it could be compounded.

Such is the fickle nature of quarterback trades. Particularly those completed to gain a starter.

Just saying here: All the people doubting Kolb's trade value see Matt Schaub. They are both very similar QBs and they both backed up Michael Vick (that doesn't really have any value here, just saying). Matt Schaub is a for sure franchise QB, and his value is helping Kolb a lot.

Or is it a 1st and a 3rd like this article states is the latest rumor?

Dave “Softy” Mahler of 950 KJR in Seattle says he has a source that tells him the Seattle Seahawks want Kevin Kolb, and that at some point they even offered the Eagles a first and third round draft pick, per Gregg Rosenthal, profootballtalk.com.
