Arizona Cardinals release quarterback Kevin Kolb

The Arizona Cardinals have released Kevin 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. The team paid Kolb some $20 million over two seasons after acquiring him in a trade that sent a second-round draft pick and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to the Philadelphia Eagles. 

But Kolb was plagued by injuries and inconsistent play in his two seasons in Arizona.

Kolb was due to make $9 million this coming season. Earlier this week, Arizona signed free agent quarterback Drew Stanton. Stanton was the backup last season at Indianapolis, where new coach Bruce Arians was interim head coach.
