Former Arizona Cardinals Kevin Kolb, Daryn Colledge make news

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

One is arrested and the other gets a job.

A pair of former Arizona Cardinals players made the news on Monday. Former Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb was arrested for boating while intoxicated, while former starting guard Daryn Colledge found himself a job, signing with the Miami Dolphins.

Kolb, who has not played in an NFL game since his season was ended in 2012 with a rib injury. He was released by the team after Bruce Arians was hired, but he landed with the Buffalo Bills, only to suffer a concussion in the preseason and spend the season on injured reserve. He was also released this offseason and is rumored to be headed to retirement, although he has not yet formally done so.

The arrest report says this:

The arrest citation was verified by Willacy County Sheriff’s office to 956sports.com. Willacy County Sheriff’s office was not able to provide a mugshot of Kolb, but was able to verify that the date of birth was August 24, 1984.

Kolb was arrested for boating while intoxicated. He was released Sunday on a personal recognizance bond. The arrest occured on Saturday June 28. He spent time in jail from 2:44am on June 29, 2014 and was released at 1:11pm.

That was the not so great news with former Cardinals. Now for better news.

Daryn Colledge, who started three seasons at left guard for the Cardinals, has landed with the Miami Dolphins.

Colledge joins a team that needs offensive line depth, with Mike Pouncey out with a hip injury. The article linked above suggests that perhaps he woudl be used at center, which is a little funny because of last offseason. Colledge was given a few reps in the offseason and in trainig camp at center for emergencies. I don't recall the exact quote, but he was not a man confident in playing the position, hoping it would never make it to the point where he would have to play center.

This is actually good news in many ways. The track record for offensive linemen let go by the Cardinals isn't that good. Most of the time, when a lineman is done with the Cardinals, they are done with the league.
