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.’
