WIP 610-AM in Philadelphia reported Wednesday that the Browns called the Eagles Tuesday to check on the availablity of benched QB Kevin Kolb. The radio station also reported that the Eagles said that Kolb was not available in trade.

Browns general manager Tom Heckert was the Eagles' GM from 2006-09 and worked in Philadelphia's front office for nine years.

The way we see it

With the Browns lacking a clear-cut quarterback of the future and Heckert previously working in Philadelphia, Cleveland's interest in Kolb would make sense. Browns president Mike Holmgren has indicated that Jake Delhomme, 35, is a short-term solution at quarterback. Backup Seneca Wallace is 31. Rookie Colt McCoy, who slipped to the third round in April's draft, struggled early in the preseason and is No. 3 on the depth chart.

According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, head coach Andy Reid would not say the Eagles would not trade Kolb, who is signed for two more seasons.
