Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb Open To Restructuring Contract

Dom Ham February 5, 2013 Cardinals 2 Comments

Arizona Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb is open to restructuring of his contract, according to Mike Jurecki.

Kolb, who was reportedly reluctant to restructure after the season, is due a $9 million base salary, as well as a $2.5 million roster bonus on March 19th and a $500,000 workout bonus.

Kolb is coming off a season where he played in just six of the Cardinals’ sixteen games after sustaining a rib injury. The team finished 5-11 after starting the year 4-0, with Kolb starting three of those games.

New Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians plans for the QB position remain unclear, as he recently said he has yet to evaluate Kolb. If Kolb stays, he will have John Skelton and Ryan Lindley to compete with for the starting job again, as well as potential newcomers in either free agency or the draft.’

    No brainier if he even wants to compete for a starting job in AZ. Surely AZ and Arians will draft a QB and Possibly land Alex Smith. I’m thinking if Smith lands in AZ the Cards will release Kolb and still draft a backup QB to groom behind Smith.

      Smith needs a solid OL to be any good and right now the Cards just don’t have one. Hoyer is also on the roster and didn’t look bad against the 49ers and will make a viable backup with a full off season to learn the playbook. Through the draft and moving some players around they can solve the issues on the OL and that will help Kolb stay healthy. IMO Potter, Brown, Colledge, Warmack, Massie would be an awesome OL and would be one of the best run blocking OLs in the NFL, which in turn helps the pass game and play action.
