The Buffalo Bills are on the verge of signing Kevin Kolb per ESPN’s @AdamSchefter this evening. While the deal is not finalized yet, the two sides are expected to agree on terms tonight. The potential terms of the deal have not been released. Kolb, 28, was released by the Cardinals after spending the last two seasons with the team (58.5 percent completions, 3,124 yards, 17 touchdowns, 11 interceptions). Like Ryan Fitzpatrick, Kolb was released because he wouldn’t restructure his deal to stay with Arizona. Although Kolb has been in the league seven years, he has only started 21 games during his time with the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals. His career record as a starter is 9-12. He’ll provide the Bills more experience at the quarterback position and will be given the chance to compete for the starting spot. According to Pro Football Focus, Kolb isn’t as bad as his numbers state. The main issue was the poor offensive line of the Arizona Cardinals. Last season he was pressured 13 times a game. During games last season, the Bills only averaged seven pressures a game to their quarterback. In addition, Kolb suffered 10 drops in 183 attempts. That shows he was accurate on 84% of his passes before being hurt. Kolb started the season very well before offensive line injuries left him exposed. After a few weeks, the numerous hits, pressures and sacks led to injury. The Bills can provide Kolb a steady offensive line and an offense that is based on releasing the ball quickly, both which benefit Kolb. Overall, this is a good move for both sides. The Bills will most likely draft a rookie quarterback in the first or second round of the draft and give them the chance to win the quarterback job in training camp. However, having Kolb will allow the Bills the opportunity to sit the rookie quarterback if they feel he isn’t ready and still have a capable starter available to start the season.
