Eagles Give Kevin Kolb One-Year Extension

The Eagles are doing right by their new starting quarterback. According to scout.com’s Adam Caplan, the Eagles and Kevin Kolb have agreed on a one-year extension rumored to be worth $12.26 million in guaranteed cash.

Why only one year? Blame the lack of a new CBA and something called the 30% rule, which limits a player’s base salary growth to 30% from one year to the next. Guaranteed money does not apply to the rule, so the majority of the extension will be tied up in up front payment.

This represents a strong commitment to Kolb from the Eagles. He is no longer the lowest paid starting signal caller and is now signed through the 2011 season.

    Glad we don’t have a broke QB anymore haha

    They need to pay DeSean next. He deserves a new contract more than anyone else on the roster right now. PAY DESEAN!

  • Scott Tunstall

    Agreed. DeSean deserves to be paid. However, with no new CBA in place, the Eagles hands are tied. They want to give him a multi year extension but they can’t until the labor issues are resolved.
