Kolb spent the past two seasons as the starter of the Arizona Cardinals. He was sent out west after four seasons of serving mostly as the backup in Philadelphia. In his time as the starter in Arizona, Kolb threw for 3,124 yards in 14 starts, along with 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He was 6-8 as a starter over those two seasons.
With the change in both the coaching staff and general manager in Arizona, the Cardinals elected to move in a different direction at the game's most critical position. They released Kolb on March 15, paving the way for the team to sign free agent Drew Stanton this off-season.
The addition of Kolb would give the Bills another player that has started in the NFL at the quarterback position. When the team re-signed Jackson, head coach Doug Marrone declared an open competition at quarterback. With the likely Kolb signing, it would appear as though he would figure in to that mix as well.
The signing would not likely prohibit them from taking a young quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft.
