HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - The Buffalo Bills signed quarterback Kevin Kolb on Monday to a two-year contract reportedly worth over $12 million.  Kolb, a six-year NFL veteran, was released by the Arizona Cardinals on March 15.  In Arizona,  Kolb started in only 14 games over two injury-ridden seasons.

The 28-year old Kolb has thrown for 28 touchdowns and 25 interceptions in his 34 career games.  He was acquired from the Eagles who drafted Kolb in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft after a stellar college career at the University of Houston.

“We wanted to add some veteran experience to the quarterback position on our roster and we think we’ve added a good one by signing Kevin.  He’s a player we had targeted since he became a free agent and he should be a strong candidate in the competition for the starting quarterback position,” General Manager Buddy Nix said in a statement posted on the Bills website.

Kolb will be competing with Tavaris Jackson for the starting quarterback role. The Bills re-signed backup Jackson but released starter Ryan Fitzpatrick who has since signed with the Tennessee Titans.
