Kolb has arrived in Buffalo to officially sign his two-year contract with the Bills. The Bills announced the signing Monday, a little over a week after the free agent agreed to a two-year contract potentially worth more than $12 million.||||||| The sixth-year player spent the past two seasons in Arizona, where injuries hampered his opportunity to prove himself as a starter. He was cut by the Cardinals last month in a salary-cap saving move. In Buffalo, he gets the opportunity to compete for the starting job with Tarvaris Jackson. The Bills are in need of a starter after Ryan Fitzpatrick was released last month.

The Cardinals have released Kolb, ending the quarterback's two injury-filled seasons with the team.||||||| The team's move on Friday came just ahead of the deadline for paying Kolb a $2 million roster bonus.

Kolb came on to direct the winning touchdown drive against the Seahawks and helped the team get off to a 4-0 start. But Kolb went out with a rib injury against Buffalo and had not been able to return.
