Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb would not seem to be making good use of his offseason, as he faces boating while intoxicated charges in Texas.

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department agents charged Kolb Saturday in Willacy County, in the southern part of the state. He was released hours later on $3,000 bond.

The 29-year-old quarterback was released by the Bills in March. He failed a physical after missing all of last season with a concussion he sustained in the preseason. The Bills had signed him to a two-year, $13 million deal in March 2013 in anticipation of having him compete for the starting job, which ended up going to an uncontested EJ Manuel.

The arrest could hurt Kolb's chances of catching on with another team as he tries to revive his career. He previously spent four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and two with the Arizona Cardinals, starting 21 of 32 games while throwing for 5,206 yards with 28 touchdowns and 25 interceptions.

He had two concussions prior to coming to Buffalo. Kolb has insisted his latest concussion would not be career-ending. He also hurt his knee this past preseason after slipping on a rubber mat while walking off the Bills' practice field.
