Quarterback Kevin Kolb was released Friday by the Arizona Cardinals in a expected move that saved the team $7.5 million in salary cap space.
Kolb's base salary was $9 million for 2013, and a $2 million roster bonus that would have been due Saturday forced the Cardinals' hand. The two sides reportedly attempted to restructure his contract but couldn't reach an agreement.
Releasing Kolb leaves the Cardinals with Brian Hoyer and Drew Stanton, who agreed to a three-yar contract Wednesday, as the the quarterbacks on the roster.
The New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns are among the teams mentioned as possible landing spots for Kolb, 28.
Reports also indicated that there is a chance that Kolb could return to Arizona later in the offseason.
Kolb joined the Cardinals in 2011 after four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. He started 14 games for Arizona in his two years there and threw for 3,124 yards with 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
