The Arizona Cardinals have completed their deal with the Philadelphia Eagles to get quarterback Kevin Kolb, sources told ESPN.com senior NFL writer John Clayton.

Kolb will get a new contract extension of five years for $63 million, with a little more than $22 million guaranteed. Kolb will be under contract for six years.

The Eagles receive cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick.

Kolb began last season as the Eagles ' starter but left the first game with a concussion and ending up losing the No. 1 job to Michael Vick, who enjoyed a career resurgence in 2010.

Kolb requested a trade from the Eagles so he can be a starter in the NFL.

Kolb spent his first three seasons as a backup and sometimes wondered if he'd ever get his chance. He stepped in when Donovan McNabb was injured in the 2009 season opener at Carolina. The 2007 second-round draft choice promptly became the first NFL quarterback to throw for 300 yards in his first two starts.

His emergence made McNabb expendable, and the No. 2 overall pick in the 1999 draft was traded to the Washington Redskins for a pair of draft picks.
