Default Kevin Kolb close to contract with Buffalo Bills

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Saturday that the Bills are finalizing a deal with Kevin Kolb, according to a source with knowledge of the negotiations.
ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news on Kolb, who was released earlier this month by the Arizona Cardinals.
Rapoport reported Friday that Buffalo had reached out to Kolb and his agent Jeff Nalley to investigate where the six-year veteran was physically and mentally after two disappointing, injury-prone seasons in Arizona.
Kolb was reportedly on the radar of the New York Jets and Oakland Raiders. Rex Ryan's search for an adequate passer rages on, while the Raiders are mired in trade talks with the Seattle Seahawks for the rights to Matt Flynn.

Hopefully this and other moves would force QBs down in draft allowing a big offer for #27.

Kolb has had little success as a QB in the NFL, but on the other hand he seems to be racking up some real nice balances in his banking accounts as he signs deal after deal as he bounces around the league with different teams.

He's been behind two of the worst O-lines I've ever seen in that time, too... be interesting to see if he can do better at the Bills.

Now Kolb joins the Bills, who just lost their best o-lineman in free agency.

Any Kolb fans out there following him through OTAs & minicamp?

Looks like the Bills are stacking the deck a bit to make sure they have a QB going forward. They've got Kolb who showed a little somet'n somet'n, then they drafted Ej Manuel.....

Do you think this might be a situation like the Flynn/Wilson thing in Seattle?

I still think Kolb can be a decent starter in the league & I think Buffalo is on the move. Kolb should be able to get them along at least until Manuel is ready, maybe a year or two.

I think Kolb is officially on the "career backup" track now. If he's lucky and good enough to take advantage of the luck, he'll get a shot and do his best Kurt Warner impersonation. I'm betting on career backup, though.

Right now from what I've heard, the Bills haven't decided on the #1 but Kolb is taking almost all the reps with the 1s. BUT... he's having some problems. His deep balls are bad, he's holding the ball too long, and he's not decisive.

Manuel has the stronger arm and is more decisive. BUT. He's throwing too many interceptions.

At this point, I expect Kolb to start the season as the #1 but I don't expect him to finish the season as the #1. I expect him to be a career backup after this.
