Football Extra Points:
In an earlier article of mine I stated that I expected the Buffalo Bills to keep their $62 million investment, Ryan Fitzpatrick. Obviously, I was wrong. Yet, in light of the inconsistent play the Bills received from the Harvard guy, I would have never imagined that Bills management would put them in the same position once again. Lo and behold they threw out another puzzling contract to a just as unpredictable quarterback, Kevin Kolb.
It’s one thing to give a guy a contract that can stay on the field (Fitzpatrick played in 32 games the past two seasons.) It’s an entirely different situation to give a contract to a guy who played half as many games in the same amount of time. Kolb’s contract is set to max out at $13 million for two seasons and while quarterbacks are seeing big paydays throughout the league it’s difficult for me to understand paying Kevin Kolb this much. Kolb’s average yearly salary of $6.5 million puts him around the 22nd highest paid quarterback in the NFL. While this may not seem so ridiculous, consider a few of the quarterbacks who will be getting paid less than Kolb: Jay Cutler, Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, Brandon Weeden, and Christian Ponder. Of those quarterbacks listed, every single one led their team to a record equal or better than the Cardinals 5-11, and 2 of them led their teams to the playoffs (Ponder and Dalton.) Regardless of the relative unknown potential of the quarterbacks in the upcoming draft, I hardly think paying $6.5 million to an injury prone enigma is the safer bet.
