Kevin Kolb finalizing deal with Bills

Posted by Michael David Smith

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.

-- This is why you suck, Buffalo. If he couldn't succeed in Arizona with LFitz, he's not going to succeed in Buffalo. Granted, he didn't have an offensive line, but... I don't know, even for a Quarterback battle it's a little weak.

Kolb has been ok, but oft injured in his career. He's nothing special, but Buffalo needs somebody to play QB this season... But they desperately need to find a franchise QB

Kolb had a 4-1 record with 9 TDs to 3 INTs this past season before his sieve of an offensive line got him killed. He's not a long term solution, but he's certainly better than Tarvaris Jackson.

Having watched Tavaris for nearly a whole season in Seattle, it's actually unfair to call him anything worse than 'average'.

If you have a decent enough team around him, he can lead them to a 'respectable' 7-9 or 8-8 season... but that's about it. (However, due to his injury problems it's unlikely that he would play all 16 games, so any team he started for would probably be 6-10 ish.)

He's basically the new Charlie Batch: A good QB to serve as a backup for 2-3 games, or four at most, and go 2-1.

That's what I thought too when I saw him play in Seattle. He's a tough guy, but holds onto the ball way too long and gets clobbered, injured because of it.
