Disappointed Kolb finds himself back on bench
Reporter: Jason Barr; Sports Director
TEMPE (AP) - Kevin Kolb was back at practice on Monday, no longer competing for the starting job for the Ariziona Cardinals but as backup NFL quarterback once again.
The team's workout was its first since coach Ken Whisenhunt announced Friday that John Skelton would be the starter for Sunday's regular-season opener against Seattle.
Kolb says he's disappointed by the move but believes "there are still good things to come" for him in Arizona.
The Cardinals traded cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round draft pick to Philadelphia to get Kolb, then signed the quarterback to a five-year $63 million contract extension, $21 million guaranteed. On March 16, Kolb got a $7 million payment for still being on the Cardinals roster.
But he didn't get the starting job.
