Vick to be franchised: Eagles shopping Kolb

ESPN's Adam Shefter reporting:

Here's the meat of the story below after the jump, but just looking to resurrect this story that's been beaten to death here at DN.  The equally worn out question: what should the Vikings do this offseason?

 

 

 What's just as significant about the move is that, by tagging Vick, the Eagles then will entertain offers for backup Kevin Kolb, who is sure to generate more interest this offseason than any other available quarterback once there is a new collective bargaining agreement.

Kolb said after the season that he wants "to be starting somewhere" in 2011.

Franchising Vick will give the Eagles contractual control of two quality quarterbacks, one of whom they will be able to shop. Kolb still is under contract for 2011 at the cap-friendly price of $1.4 million, making him an even more desirable commodity.

Multiple teams coveted Kolb last offseason. Kolb started the 2011 season as the Eagles' starting quarterback but was replaced by Vick after suffering a concussion in the season opener.
