While the Arizona Cardinals are not yet ready to give up on Kevin Kolb as their starting quarterback, as team president Michael Bidwill said last month, it may come down to a matter of dollars and cents. Kolb, entering the third year with the Cardinals after having been traded from the Philadelphia Eagles, is due to make $9 million in salary. He is also due a $2 million roster bonus on March 15 and then a $500,000 workout bonus.
That is a lot of money and a huge cap hit ($11.5 million) for a quarterback who has not finished a season with the team yet.
With new head coach Bruce Arians, the future of Kolb is up in the air, although Arians has said that as of right now he thinks that Kolb "is good enough" to handle the job.
However, with money being a factor, he may not get the chance, unless he restructures his deal.
Kevin Kolb reportedly open to restructuring contract
