Kevin Kolb's career as an Arizona Cardinal has been rather turbulent.

Acquired by the team prior to the 2011 season, he has struggled with consistency and injuries, and even lost the starting job coming into the 2012 season.

However, the 28-year-old played well in relief of an injured John Skelton, leading some to believe he still could be the team's answer at the quarterback position.

Others feel the team should part ways with the signal caller, as it would not be wise to rely on a player who can't seem to stay on the field.

"Yeah, sure you bring Kevin back," ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620's Burns and Gambo Thursday. "I think he's a seasoned guy that has value."

Kolb has played in 15 games for the Cardinals over two seasons -- with 14 starts -- throwing for 3,124 yards to go along with 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

listen Listen: Ron Jaworski, ESPN NFL Analyst
Ron Jaworski comes on to talk about an eventful week in the NFL. Jaws tells us truly how painful it was watching the Cardinals vs. Jets game. Jaws tells us what the Jets did against the Cardinals that confused Ryan Lindley on Sunday. And, what position does Jaws say is the most important position on the team? And, Jaws says the Jets and Rex Ryan are making a mistake in going with Mark Sanchez Sunday. Why does he say Sanchez should have been benched for one more game?
However, Jaworski noted whether Kolb is back or not, the Cardinals need to make sure they find a way to get their quarterback of not only the present, but future as well.

That may mean selecting one in the draft.

"Clearly, looking down the road the Cardinals can't get someone else's retread, someone else's discard," Jaworski said. "They've got to get a quarterback that they fall in love with, that they're going to coach up, and he's going to be their quarterback for the next decade."
