ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported last month that Kolb's future with the team is "up in the air." There's no way the Cardinals bring Kolb back at his current cost, and there's little to suggest Bruce Arians is galvanized by the 28-year-old passer who's started just 14 games for Arizona over two seasons.
If talks don't lead to a restructured deal and Kolb is set free, he quickly becomes the top prize in a shallow quarterback market. Teams desperate for help under center might be willing ignore Kolb's checkered injury history. The Cardinals themselves have nothing to show at the position, but the Kolb experiment has been an expensive disaster in Arizona.
