A number of Eagles offensive players worked out today at a field in Evesham Township, New Jersey this morning. The much-talked Kevin Kolb showed at the workout today and took turns with Mike Kafka throwing the ball to the receivers, who showed up.
Joining Kolb were Eagles wide receivers Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Riley Cooper, as well as recent Eagles signee Sinorice Moss. Tight end Brent Celek was there, along with Eagles kicker David Akers.
Akers was on one side of the field kicking field goals while everybody else worked out together on the other side.
They didn’t have any defensive players present to run the routes against, but they got in plenty of work. The Eagles receivers ran short out routes, as well as short crossing routes, then they took things downfield with curl and hook routes, then corner routes, post routes and deep go routes. It was hot so the receivers came over to the side and got some waters to keep themselves fresh.
After the workout, Kolb said he would still like to be a starter for another team in the league but has no idea what’s ahead for him, “I think that I’ve voiced my opinion, and there’s nothing more I can do. Just like always, whatever situation arises, I’ll just have to roll with the punches … To say that it didn’t cross my mind, I’d be lying.”
Kolb talked about a conversation he had with Eagles head coach Andy Reid. Kolb said the Birds coach talked about taking care of him by sending him to a good situation when and if they trade him. The former Houston Cougar said he hadn’t even called the coach for any assurance like that, but just to touch base with him.
Avant and Celek said they enjoyed working out with Kolb and thought he was a great quarterback, who was sure to have success wherever he goes in the upcoming season.
