Cardinals released QB Kevin Kolb.
The move saves $7.5 million in cap space. Per The Sideline View's Adam Caplan, the sides "discussed various options for him to return," but could not come to an agreement. Interestingly, Caplan reports Arizona "left the door open" for Kolb to return at a cheaper rate. Kolb would be returning to a competition with Brian Hoyer, Drew Stanton, and probably a draft pick while earning a bargain-basement salary. We fully expect him to move on. The Jets, Bills and Browns are all possible landing spots. A colossal bust who cost Arizona a second-round pick, then-top CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and a six-year, $65 million contract just after the lockout, Kolb finished his Cardinals stint with a 6-8 record, 17:16 touchdown-to-turnover ratio, and sub-60 percent completion rate. He's still only 28 years old.
