TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Kevin Kolb has arrived in Arizona as the new quarterback of the Cardinals, acknowledging the pressure he will be under to succeed but saying the situation simply "feels right."

Kolb appeared at a news conference Friday after undergoing his physical.

Later, he traveled north to the team's training camp in Flagstaff for an evening team meeting. The Cardinals hold their first practice on Saturday but, because he signed a new contract, Kolb won't be able to work out with his new team until next Thursday.

The Cardinals sent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2012 second-round draft pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in a deal reached on Wednesday. Kolb also has agreed to a five-year contract worth just under $64 million, with $21 million guaranteed.
