Reid on Kolb: ‘That kid is a championship’ quarterback

Kevin Kolb is a Super Bowl quarterback. That is Andy Reid’s story, anyway, and he’s sticking to it.

The Eagles coach met with reporters at the NFL coaches’ meetings in New Orleans yesterday and answered questions about the future of his backup quarterback.

“I didn’t bring him in to be a backup; I brought him in to be a starter,” Reid said. “And crazy things happened with this Michael Vick thing that nobody thought would happen. So when I made that statement [last season], ‘I’ve got a beautiful situation,’ I’ve got a beautiful situation. But that kid is a championship-caliber quarterback.”

The team has reportedly received multiple offers, including first-round draft picks, in exchange for Kolb. If there is no labor agreement before the April 28 draft, the Eagles may be tempted to trade Kolb for 2012 picks.
