Brian St. Pierre expected to return to Cardinals

The Cardinals likely would have been interested in Marc Bulger earlier this offseason, but now now they have their veteran backup in Derek Anderson.

With that role filled, Brian St. Pierre seems ready to return to the team as the No. 3 quarterback.  Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic writes that St. Pierre will take a physical with the team this weekend and expects to re-sign next week.

St. Pierre’s future was uncertain because of a back injury, but he’s able to play. The former Steeler has spent seven seasons in the NFL, throwing 5 career passes.

    What a QB core, bunch of garbage. SF to win that division.

    Back injury? Must have been a heavy clipboard.

    No to Pierre! Bulger would still be an option, just deal whatever QB (DA) that loses the competition. I still think he’s just fodder to see who wants him before the start of the season.

    Who?

    Uh, who?

    How is this guy still holding a job in the league? He’ll be 31 next season and has never been better than a third string QB. You’d think at some point teams would look for a guy with more upside.

    Career comp percent 57.8%. 14-20 td/int. 70.8 passer rating. Let’s hear it Cardinal Nation for MATT LEINART!!!

    I always brought this up in posts about the Cardinals. Gregg, you didn’t cite me.. “Son, I’m ‘disappoint.’”
    On a serious note, it seems like the Cardinals are set to hand the division to the 49ers. Matt Lienart.. Derek Anderson, lots of picks in his supposed “good season”, and a guy who has thrown 5 passes in 7 years in a real NFL game..
    Not to mention the amount of core players they lost over this offseason!

    Brian St. Peirre has the greatest job in the world. I wish I could be him. League minimum salary for league minimum work…
    He does so little he can probably apply of unemployment even while he’s on the roster.

    As a Cards fan I can’t believe this even made news. What’s next…exploring their poo to see what they ate?

    what a joke, look how many below average white QBs are still in the league, and a guy like aaron brooks and shaun king cant even get another chance.

    “Career comp percent 57.8%. 14-20 td/int. 70.8 passer rating. Let’s hear it Cardinal Nation for MATT LEINART!!! ”
    He’s started only 17 games, 11 of those as a rookie. Give him a chance to actually do something.

    The easiest paycheck in football right there..

    49ers have NO SHOT to win more than 8 games little lone the division. Nice try. Besides Gore and Davis, they have NO ONE! Crabtree is still just learning to swim. He has not even been in the deep end. So 2 years and counting the Cards have been great! The two teams that took them out of winning the Super Bowl were the last two Super Bowl winners. The Steelers were lucky as hell the Holmes catch was counted. Then this last season the Saints took them out and then they won the SB. So all you people that say they suck. This aint your mama’s Cardinals! No team in the NFC West have a proven QB. They still have the best WR courp, best Safety and Corner in Wilson and DRC. Now arguably the best Running Duo in Hightower and Wells. Jackson and Gore are solid but this is a 2 back league. Cards have another 3 years of being on top. Sorry NFC West. They got the talent, coaches and now ownership is even doing the right things.

    Why does race always have to be brought up?? Get over this crap it is 2010. You want to look at race….look at the NBA, tell me how many dead beat black guys are there earning a paycheck just sitting on the bench??

    Man that guy has it made, 5 career passes and he makes more than 95% of the average shmucks in the U.S.

  18. lskynard87 says: Apr 8, 2010 8:10 PM

    He’s probably suited to next be a QB coach, and makes less money as a third stringer than most other QB’s would ask or coaches would demand.
    Just sayin.
