QB | Kevin Kolb | Arizona Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
Arizona Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb (concussion) said Monday, April 16, that it was more than three weeks after the season when he felt normal again after battling a concussion. "To be honest with you, when I first went home it was still pretty severe," Kolb said. "It kind of worried me because I figured once I got away from the game it would clear up pretty fast. But it didn't and I stayed in contact with our guys here. Within three or four days after that three-week period it was fine. I was glad to be feeling back to normal."

QB | Richard Bartel | Arizona Cardinals | Transaction, Free Agents

"I think there's a lot of guys here that were pushing for playing time last year," Dalton said. "But I think if we can get another one, that would be great. We feel we've got a lot of weapons now, but if we can add another skill guy, that would really help us out."
