Bills part ways with Kevin Kolb

Kevin Kolb AP

Kevin Kolb’s career in Buffalo has reportedly to come to a close.

The Bills released Kolb on Tuesday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reported.

The 29-year-old Kolb suffered a season-ending concussion in the Bills’ August 24 preseason game vs. Washington. He was due a $1 million roster bonus this month and $2 million in salary in 2014, per Rotoworld data.

Kolb has started 21 regular season games in his NFL career, which began in 2007 in Philadelphia. However, were he to resume his career, he would need to be medically cleared.

    Poor man’s Matt Flynn. Dude knew how to trick teams into giving him millions though, so there’s that.

    I loved reading how my Eagles scammed the hell outta the cardinals for him. hahaha!

    Does a falling tree make a sound, if there’s nobody there to hear it?

    Either back to Philly or reunion with Andy Reid in KC. Of course under the circumstance that he’s a backup in both places.

    Hope Kolb has been banking all of his money from these desperate teams…

    He really hasn’t had much of an NFL ‘career’, and has never been able to stay reasonably healthy and on the field. If his eggs were scrambled to the point that he missed an entire season due to a concussion, you’d think it might be time to hang ‘em up for good?

    Nice trade, Cardinals. Ken Whisenhunt is such a fraud.

    The luckiest man in America. So much money for literally no production over his career.

  10. billsysabres says: Mar 11, 2014 4:53 PM

    His career is done just retire already

    To be reunited with whisenhunt in Tennessee

    At one time he was supposed to be the next big thing which is why Cousins will stay put in D.C.

  13. toonloonboon says: Mar 11, 2014 5:00 PM

    i thought this happened like 5 years ago

  14. jagsfan1 says: Mar 11, 2014 5:01 PM

    He made a lot of money and he should now retire – or stay in the league as a backup and hope the starter never gets hurt. The last thing he needs is another concussion. Just not worth it.

    To be reunited with whisenhunt

    Kevin Kolb had a career in Buffalo? Defining that term a little loosely, aren’t we?

  17. flakeybiscuits says: Mar 11, 2014 5:05 PM

    I always wonder what could have been involving the bills season, had this guy not gotten nocked out before it all even started (I’m specifically thinking about that KC gameā€¦ I’m looking at you, Tuel) It’s a shame a good backup like him didn’t even get a chance. Hope he finds better luck elsewhere, concussions are scary things these days

    Kolb sure has made a lot of money the last few years while being on IR. If he saved even a quarter of it he’s set for life.

    Bust and a bum … everyone knew it but Arizona.

  20. mancave001 says: Mar 11, 2014 6:46 PM

    I didn’t think he was a bum at all. He just cannot stay healthy. Too bad. Prob best to take his 60 million and retire.

    Just one more example of the axiom that Buffalo is the team where careers go to die.

  22. rogerrodgers says: Mar 13, 2014 2:14 AM

    Kolb should retire while he can still think

  23. mjw9326mjw9326 says: Mar 13, 2014 6:44 AM

    If the guy can’t pass a physical due to a concussion that happened like 7 or 8 months ago, he likely never will. Nobody is likely to take much of a flier on him, I would think.
    Sad thing is, the Bills had signed him with the intent to give him a really good shot a the starting job so EJ could learn under him for a year or two.
