PHOENIX (AP) -- Out of the race to nab Peyton Manning, the Arizona Cardinals are moving on with quarterback Kevin Kolb.

Kolb remained on the Arizona roster at a 4 p.m. EDT deadline Friday, ensuring him a $7 million roster bonus that the team would not have paid if they had landed Manning.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt issued a statement acknowledging that "acquiring Peyton Manning is no longer an option for us."

Also on Friday, the Cardinals agreed to terms on a five-year contract for offensive tackle Levi Brown, who had been released Tuesday in a salary cap move.
