The Cardinals aren’t putting all their eggs in Kevin Kolb’s basket just yet. At least they don’t want Kolb to think so.
It’s hard to tell how much of this is posturing, leverage, or doing their due diligence. Clearly, they must have a favorite of the group. Ken Whisenhunt said he’d be surprised if they agreed to a deal for a quarterback Tuesday.
The Cardinals have Orton and Kolb reportedly rated “closely in talent.” Hasselbeck won’t return to Seattle and won’t cost a draft pick to sign.
As quarterback markets go, the Cardinals have decent options.
