Considering only the great Kurt Warner thrived as a Cardinal, Kevin Kolb is the perfect gamble for the New York Jets

Kevin Kolb already looked good wearing green in the NFL.

After failing to agree on a restructured contract, the Arizona Cardinals released quarterback Kevin Kolb on Friday.

Arizona acquired the 28-year-old Kolb, who Philadelphia took out of the University of Houston with the 36th choice in the 2007 NFL Draft, two years ago from the Eagles in exchange for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second round selection.

Kolb, who has tossed 28 scores, against 25 picks, for 5,206 yards in 34 games, inked a five-year deal worth $63 million to become a Cardinal.

Regrettably for Cardinals fans, the 6-foot-3, 218 pound Kolb appeared in only 15 contests and completed 58 percent of his passes for 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in two seasons performing in the Valley of the Sun.

Riddled with injuries that made the former Cougar less useful than funbags on a jaguar, Arizona fired Kolb before being obligated to pay a $2 million roster bonus and the team is determined to land their signal caller of the future elsewhere.

Since being clipped, the New York Jets have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Kolb.

With the hideous Mark Sanchez, the elderly and brittle David Garrard, and the unproven Greg McElroy currently employed off Exit 16W, Kolb makes perfect sense for Gang Green.

Considering the great Kurt Warner is the only man to ever truly excel on the gridiron in the Phoenix metropolitan area, it’s impossible to fairly judge Kolb.

New Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg likes Kolb from teaming together in Philadelphia and the duo could prove efficient in East Rutherford.

For the price of a Rich Kotite autograph, New York could land a field general infinitely superior to the trio of dimwits listed above.

Acting quickly, Jets owner Woody Johnson and general manager John Idzik must move Kevin Kolb from the Valley of the Sun to the swamps of Jersey.
