Another veteran quarterback has joined the free-agent market.
The Arizona Cardinals have released Kevin Kolb after failing to reach agreement on a restructured contract. The news was first reported on Twitter by long-time NFL journalist Adam Caplan (@adamcaplan).
Kolb's failure to make a positive impact during his two seasons in Arizona contributed to the January firing of head coach Ken Whisenhunt. The Cardinals sent a second-round draft choice and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to Philadelphia during the 2011 offseason for Kolb, who never lived up to the five-year, $64 million contract he signed with Arizona. Kolb, 28, battled injuries throughout his two-year tenure and started only 14 of a possible 32 games.
Drew Stanton, who was signed away from Indianapolis earlier this week as a free agent, told me and co-host Gil Brandt on SiriusXM NFL Radio he was told by Cardinals brass that he would have the chance to compete for the starting position in training camp. Brian Hoyer, John Skelton and Ryan Lindley are the other quarterbacks on Arizona's roster.
Kolb joins a thin group of unsigned veteran quarterbacks that includes first-round washouts like Brady Quinn, David Carr, Rex Grossman and Byron Leftwich. Media reports have linked Kolb as a potential target of the New York Jets because of that club's quarterbacking woes and his ties to new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg from when both were with the Eagles.

After failing to agree on a restructured contract, the Arizona Cardinals released quarterback Kevin Kolb on Friday.

The recent signing of Drew Stanton in Arizona has made Kevin Kolb as expendable as ever for the Cardinals, as many believe that Stanton is a shoe-in to be the starting QB, as he followed new head coach Bruce Arians from Indianapolis. Though Kolb is still owed quite a bit of money, it doesn’t look like his future is in the desert according to recent reports. But it could be in the...

It’s gotten bad for the Jets. We’ve tried to look away, but there’s just so much wreckage. It’s OK. It’s going to be like Sandy and the Mets. Resign yourself to a few years of pain in the hopes of a brighter tomorrow.
