Cardinals release QB Kolb
The Arizona Cardinals released Kevin Kolb, ending the quarterback’s two injury-filled seasons with the team.
The team’s move on Friday came just ahead of the deadline for paying Kolb a $2 million roster bonus. The team paid Kolb some $20 million over two seasons after acquiring him in a trade that sent a second-round draft pick and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The move reportedly saved $7 million in salary cap space. Kolb was plagued by injuries and inconsistent play in his two seasons in Arizona.
He was due to make $9 million this coming season.
