Cardinals part ways with Kevin Kolb
The Arizona Cardinals have parted ways with quarterback Kevin Kolb Friday after Kolb and the team could not work out a pay cut.
Hours before Kolb was due $2 million in bonus, he was cut by the team. Kolb was due $9 million in salary this year but by cutting him, the Cardinals will be saving cash and salary cap space, according to Arizona Sports Central.
Kolb suffered three detached ribs and a sprained shoulder joint on October 14 against the Buffalo Bills after landing on the football. He never returned to the field after that, finishing the season with eight touchdown passes and three interceptions.
Since Kurt Warner’s retirement in 2009, the Cardinals have constantly looked for a quarterback to replace him. By releasing Kolb, the Cardinals are looking at quarterbacks Drew Stanton and Brian Hoyer, who are looking for a chance to start, according to NFL.com.
Though the Cardinals have released Kolb, the team has left the possibility of him returning to the team during the season.
