Eagles extend contract of Kevin Kolb
If you had any doubt that Kevin Kolb is the quarterback of the future for the Philadelphia Eagles, you don’t any more.
He has received a one-year extension, according to Adam Caplan of Scout.com, that will land him $12.26 million in guaranteed money. He gets a $10.7 million signing bonus in the deal and is now signed through 2011.
It’s a tricky situation right now for extensions because of the 30 percent rule, and per the report Kolb receives the maximum allowable increase in his base salaries for this year and 2011. The bottom line is he will now average more than $6 million each of the next two seasons, still a bargain if he becomes the kind of player the team expects.
