Free-agent quarterback Kevin Kolb was arrested in Texas over the weekend, charged with boating while intoxicated, according to multiple reports.
The website 956sports.com was the first to report the news on Monday, confirming the arrest through the Willacy County Sheriff’s office. According to the report, Kolb was arrested on Saturday, though reports conflict as to exactly what time he was booked into jail and what time he was released, reportedly on $3,000 bond.
Rio Grande Valley CBS affiliate KGBT reported that the Texas Wildlife Parks Department actually made the arrest, and the sheriff's office confirmed Kolb paid the $3,000 bond. Neither report had any additional details on the events relating to the arrest.
Kolb, 29, suffered a preseason concussion in 2013, his first season with Buffalo, and was never cleared to play last season. The team released him this past offseason. In seven seasons, Kolb is 9-12 as a starter with 5.206 yards, 28 touchdowns and 25 interceptions. Drafted by the Eagles out of Houston in the second round of the 2007 Draft, Kolb spent four seasons in Philadelphia before the Cardinals obtained him in a 2011 offseason trade. After signing a five-year, $64 million deal ($21 million guaranteed), Kolb was 6-8 as a starter in two seasons in Arizona.
