The Bills have some interest in former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb, according to a report from ProFootballTalk. The report doesn't say whether Kolb will be visiting the team, just that the Bills are "interested in kicking the tires."

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Bills have made contact with Kolb and his agent Jeff Nalley in an effort to gauge where Kolb is physically and mentally. The team also wanted to understand Kolb's level of expectations, according to a source with knowledge of the Bills' thought process.

There was believed to mutual interest, but if there is a deal on the way, it's not imminent.

It's amazing to think how far Kolb's stock has fallen in two years. The Cardinals gave up a second-round draft pick and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie just for the honor of paying Kolb more than $10 million per season. Kolb has been on the free-agent market for exactly two weeks, and this is the first bit of interest we've heard in him.

Kolb could battle with Tarvaris Jackson and a rookie to be named later for the starting job in Buffalo under new coach Doug Marrone. Ryan Fitzpatrick suddenly doesn't look so bad.
