ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Having already squandered two chances to prove himself as an NFL starter, quarterback Kevin Kolb arrived in Buffalo on Monday eager for a third opportunity.
"This is a big chance for me," Kolb said, shortly after officially signing a two-year contract potentially worth more than 12 million. He agreed to the deal March 30. "That's why I came here. And I'm excited about getting out there and doing some special things."
A free agent after being cut by the Arizona Cardinals last month, Kolb mentioned several reasons that attracted him to Buffalo. The Bills have an immediate need for an experienced quarterback, and he's comfortable with the up-tempo, West Coast-style of offense being introduced by rookie coach Doug Marrone.
He has no problem having to compete for the job with returning backup Tarvaris Jackson and potentially a rookie prospect the Bills are expected to select. And Kolb maintaine...

Even though Buddy Nix believes Kevin Kolb has a shot to win the Bills’ starting quarterback job, it doesn’t mean they’re going to pay him like a starter.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Bills are paying Kolb like a back up. PFT has the details.
The truth, as a league source with knowledge of the deal tells PFT, is that the contract “screams backup.”
Kolb has escaped the drums of Arizona, and now he’s feeling a bit cocky. Kolb was introduced to the Buffalo media, and let it be known that he was there to win a ring, period.

The Buffalo Bills have had one winning season and zero playoff appearances since the start of the 2000 season. The last time they were involved in a playoff game, Rob Johnson was starting for them, and Kevin Dyson streaked down the sideline after Frank Wycheck threw a lateral to him on a last-second kickoff return. “The Music City Miracle” turned into a decade and half long nightmare...
1. Quarterback: Kevin Kolb was recently brought in, but he obviously isn't a long term solution. Buddy Nix wants his franchise quarterback, so there's a good chance they will take one in the first or second round. However, they could wait for round three if they believe in someone like Tyler Bray.
