According to Dan Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com, quarterback Kevin Kolb’s days could be numbered as a member of the Arizona Cardinals.
“The way we hear it, unless Kolb can make a Kurt Warner-type comeback in a starting role down the stretch that spearheads a trip to the playoffs — which probably won’t happen if fellow QB John Skelton gets the job done adequately in Kolb’s absence over the next 6-8 weeks — the odds of him remaining a Redbird aren’t real good,” wrote Arkush.
“Under his current deal, he’s set to make $9 million next season and will also be due a $2 million roster bonus,” said a Cardinals insider, per Arkush. “I don’t know if they’ll be willing to pay that kind of money. They could certainly restructure the deal, but right now, I don’t think they really know what they want to do.”
Kolb has looked better this season, but he still hasn’t lived up to the six-year, $63.5 milloin deal he signed before last season. It also doesn’t help that he has one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL.
