Bills Sign QB Kevin Kolb


Adam Caplan reports that the Buffalo Bills have reached an agreement with free agent QB Kevin Kolb on a two-year deal worth a maximum of $13 million.

Caplan mentions that the Bills reportedly put the “full court press” on Kolb this week and believe he’s a great fit for their new offensive scheme.

  • Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo not only spent time with Kolb last weekend, they brought him in for visits on Thursday and Friday.
  • Caplan believes that Bills will still target a quarterback in this year’s draft, but not in the first-round.

Clearly, the Bills have high hopes for Kolb next season. We’ll have to see if he’s able to do a better job of running their offense than Ryan Fitzpatrick did last season.

Kolb, 28, reportedly had interest from the Raiders as well. We had Kolb listed as the No. 21 player in our recently updated Top 50 Free Agents list.



Ian Rapoport reports that the Bills visited with free agent QB Kevin Kolb.

Buffalo reportedly checked in on Matt Flynn as well, but never pursued a deal with the Seahawks. Clearly, the Bills are trying to find another quarterback to add to their roster. The only question is whether they’re willing to pay for a free agent or comfortable drafting a developmental prospect come April.


Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is reporting that a league source has informed him that the Bills are interested in free agent QB Kevin Kolb.

Kolb, 28, was released by the Cardinals close to two weeks ago, but hasn’t found much, if any, interest since then.

Buffalo currently has Tarvaris Jackson in place as their starting quarterback, but they are fully expected to explore some the available options in the upcoming draft.

The Jets were tossed out as a speculative option a few weeks ago, but there’s also been little buzz surrounding that idea in recent days. Kolb may have to wait until after the draft before he signs with his next weeks.
