The Cardinals had to make a decision on Kevin Kolb's $7 million roster bonus. One of the finalists in the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, they could choose not to pay Kolb and hope Manning chose them, or to keep Kolb and move on. Manning, of course, made the decision for them — choosing Denver over the desert.

That led to the team paying Kolb his roster bonus, which means he will be back in Arizona in 2012. He will compete with John Skelton for the starting job.

Kolb missed time a year ago with foot (turf toe) and concussion issues. He will also face a training-camp battle with Skelton, who won six of eight games played in 2011. Skelton ended the season averaging 239.1 yards and 1.4 TDs with 1.8 interceptions per game.

Kolb averaged 217.2 yards and one TD with 0.9 interceptions per game and did not prove he was worth the money or a fantasy roster spot. His numbers are waiver-wire material. Until either Skelton or Kolb wins the starting job, there's no fantasy value here. Once resolved, either quarterback is only worth a fantasy backup role on your roster — at best.
