The Cardinals are currently trying to rework QB Kevin Kolb's six-year, $62 million contract, per ESPN's Chris Mortensen. If the team and Kolb can't reach a new agreement, "both sides move on."

Kolb is due for a $2 million bonus on March 15, but it doesn't look like he'll be getting it; the Cardinals want to restructure before then. The team has paid Kolb $20 million for the 15 games he's managed to play. A string of injuries leaves Kolb's future rocky at best with the team. Especially because it's unclear when and how much he will ever get to play.

Team President Michael Bidwill admitted recently that Kolb needs restructuring.

"Kevin's contract is probably something we're going to need to address," Bidwill said. "It's a big number and given the productivity and the questions about durability and everything, that's something that I think the reality is we need to sit down and discuss."
Kolb has realized he'll be released unless he takes a pay cut, and has said he's open to restructuring his contract.
