Kevin Kolb knows there is pressure. He knows there are doubters and he knows there are some who think the Cardinals overpaid to get a guy who hasn’t proven anything in the NFL.
It doesn’t matter.
“There’s always a little bit of pressure,” he said. “I know that, I’m not naive enough not to think that.
“But, I just feel a lot more relaxed here than what I have in the past and that’s exciting for me because I feel can take my game to another level.”
That’s not only what the Cardinals would want to hear, but also what they expect. Arizona did not give up a former Pro-Bowl cornerback and a second round pick for someone who they hope is better than what they had last year; they gave all that up because they think the guy they got in return is one of the better passers in the NFL.
