Buffalo Bills interested in Kevin Kolb, per report

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

First Matt Flynn, now Kevin Kolb. Just wait until Carson Palmer gets cut.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports that the Buffalo Bills are showing preliminary interest in free agent quarterback Kevin Kolb, released in March by the Arizona Cardinals.

With a crying need at the quarterback position, the Bills have been previously linked to Seattle Seahawks backup Matt Flynn. He's reportedly about to be traded (per ESPN's Ed Werder), but if you're worried, don't be: NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that if a Flynn trade is imminent, it won't be to Buffalo.

Back to Kolb: a seventh-year pro out of Houston, the 28-year-old has spent the last two seasons in and out of the lineup as a starter for the Arizona Cardinals. He last played in a 19-13 overtime loss to the Buffalo Bills last season, when he suffered three detached ribs and a shoulder injury thanks to the Bills beating up on him all day. He's been on the open market for two full weeks, but he's only been loosely connected to one team - the New York Jets, who employ Kolb's former offensive coordinator in Philadelphia, Marty Mornhinweg.

If these reports of the Bills' interest in Flynn and now Kolb are true, there's one legitimate takeaway: the team wants at least two quarterbacks with NFL experience on the roster. Which makes a degree of sense, especially if the plan is to start a rookie.
