Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb says there have been no contract talks between his agent and the Eagles, and he called a report last week to the contrary "obviously false."

"We haven't even talked to them as far as I know," Kolb said during an interview on WIP, according to the team's Web site. "That totally blew me away when that was reported because that was obviously false.

"I don't even talk to my agent that much about it because ultimately it doesn't have anything to do with what we say ... We know there's still some time here and I'm sure there'll be a phone call some time in the near future or a meeting. But as of right now we're just going to let it iron out and have faith that the right decision's going to be made."

Kolb has one year left on his contract, as do Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick. The Eagles ultimately will have to decide what they want to do, but they have not done that yet. Andy Reid has said McNabb will be the starter.

Kolb has previously said he thinks he is ready to be an NFL starter, but also that he would be a "team player." Kolb started two games for the Eagles last season when McNabb was sidelined with a rib injury.

"I wish that I could have played last year," Kolb said. "With that being said I'm going to wish it even more this year so it's tough but I know it's an even harder situation for the Eagles. My gosh, there's three of us back there that can play so I'm going to keep their feelings in mind and try to remain positive no matter what happens."

During the interview, Kolb said he sees himself as an Eagle moving forward.

"I feel like I fit in this system so well," Kolb said. "And not just the system, but the coaching staff and the players and the personnel all the way around, even on the other side of the building with the business side and all that. I just feel like our personalities really fit well together and I look forward to taking over this thing one day and working with those guys. So I would never wish myself to be anywhere else."
