Arizona isn't worrying about QB Kevin Kolb's potential hurt feelings over the team's Peyton Manning…
Cardinals' Kolb gets his bonus
The Cardinals officially ended their pursuit of the future Hall of Fame quarterback Friday, when they had a 4 p.m. ET deadline before Kolb's $7 million roster bonus would kick in. Manning has since began negotiations with the Denver Broncos.
The Cardinals had already been informed by Manning's camp that it would be better for them to plan on not acquiring him, according to ESPN.
Manning had visited the team's facility Sunday, but was reported to have narrowed his choices to the Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers. Manning eventually singled in on Denver.
"Regarding today's developments and our quarterback position, acquiring Peyton Manning is no longer an option for us," Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said in a statement released by the team. "Since the end of last season we made it very clear that our plan was to head into 2012 with Kevin Kolb and John Skelton, let the process play out and -- like at every position -- go with the quarterback who gives us the best chance to win."
