(NEW YORK) — Quarterback Kevin Kolb was released by the Arizona Cardinals on Friday after being unable to agree to a restructured contract.
Kolb was set to earn a $2 million roster bonus if he was still on the Cardinals’ roster Saturday. He also had a $9 million base salary for the season.
The 28-year-old Kolb appeared in just six games for the Cardinals last season, throwing for 1,169 yards with eight touchdowns and three interceptions.
He threw 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in his two seasons in Arizona after coming over in a trade from the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011.
The Cardinals currently need help at the quarterback position after their offense ranked last in the NFL in 2012.
