The Kansas City Chiefs released Matt Cassel today and Kevin Kolb is on his way out in Arizona, as well. In KC, it was only a matter of time before Cassel saw the door since the Chiefs traded for Alex Smith not too long ago. Kolb is sure to be next, since it doesn't make sense to pay $9 million to a QB no one is sure can actually play.
But the New York Daily News is reporting that Kolb could become part of a whole new debacle of a quarterback competition with the Jets. That's Mark Sanchez, David Garrard, Tim Tebow, and Greg McElroy all competing for a job. Throw Kolb in there if he signs. Just went you thought it couldn't get any more awkward out there.
Matt Cassel's been cut. Kevin Kolb is next. It's a sad day for overhyped backups who failed as starters. deadsp.in/BGUjrk1— Deadspin (@Deadspin) March 14, 2013
Sources: #Cardinals expect to cut QB Kevin Kolb over the next few days. Due a roster bonus of $2M on March 17. He won't see that, I'm told— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 14, 2013
Would Jets be interested in Kevin Kolb? (And if so, enough to make him the Week 1 starter?) cbsprt.co/XakBy5— Eye on Football (@EyeOnNFL) March 14, 2013
Why would getting out of Arizona be a bad thing for Kevin Kolb? That division is scary right now.— Andrew Perloff (@andrewperloff) March 14, 2013
Josh Cribbs gave an emotional farewell to the folks in Cleveland via Instagram. I guess he was going for some kind of anti-LeBron strategy here:
Hey, when you're looking for work, you're looking for work, right?

New York state gun show operators agreed to new rules to make sure that criminal and mental health background checks are conducted on buyers. Kind of scary that this wasn't already the case, but okay.
