Kevin Kolb is close to becoming the quarterback of the Buffalo Bills.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Bills and Kolb are finalizing a deal tonight that will land Kolb in Buffalo.
PFT reported the Bills’ interest in Kolb on Friday, and getting the deal done would give Buffalo a player who would be considered the favorite to win a training camp competition with the only experienced quarterback currently on the roster, Tarvaris Jackson.
Kolb landing with the Bills also takes him out of play for the other teams who are reported to have interest, including the Jets and the Raiders. Oakland was believed to be considering Kolb in case a deal to acquire Matt Flynn from Seattle (and to get Flynn to take a pay cut) can’t be worked out.
After showing some promise early in his career with the Eagles, Kolb was a major disappointment in Arizona. Bills fans will have to hope his third stop is the charm.
