Cardinals GM: No Reason To Believe Kevin Kolb Won't Be Back

Friday February 17th, 2012

Arizona Cardinals general manager Rod Graves said that they expect to stick with quarterback Kevin Kolb next season, according to

"There's no reason to think at this particular point that we wouldn't proceed with ... seeing the contract through, but things change as we go down the road," Graves said in an interview on KTAR-AM in Phoenix, as transcribed by the NFL.

Under his current contract, Kolb is owed a $7 million roster bonus in March, which have led some to speculate whether the Cardinals would keep the quarterback after his injury plagued 2011 season. Kolb played in just nine games last year, posting an 81.1 quarterback rating while throwing for nine touchdowns and eight interceptions.
