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.

But Kolb went out with a rib injury against Buffalo and had not been able to return.
