Cardinals release QB Kevin Kolb

Less than two years ago, the Cardinals traded cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round draft pick for then-Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb @KevinKolb_4. As part of the trade, Arizona signed Kolb to a six-year, $65 million contract with $12 million guaranteed. Today, they have nothing to show for it. The Cardinals released Kolb, a move that saves them $7.5 million in salary-cap space.
According to The Sideline View's Adam Caplan, Kolb was cut after not agreeing to a restructure of his contract, although Caplan also said it's possible that Kolb could come back to Arizona. If Kolb had been on the roster at 4 p.m. Eastern today, he would have been owed a $2 million bonus.
Due to injuries and poor play, Kolb played in just 15 games with the Cardinals. The team went 6-8 in games he started. He threw 17 touchdowns, 11 interceptions, and completed 58.4 percent of his throws.

Fantasy Analysis:

The free-agent market is pretty weak when it comes to QBs -- Kolb and Ryan Fitzpatrick are the best options -- but there are teams that have big needs at that position. So, Kolb should get another job soon and will likely compete to be a starter. Kolb to the Jets is the popular rumor right now, and I would love to see that if for no other reason than I think it would be a hilarious camp battle.
