Cardinals to work out quarterback Mike Glennon

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has indicated that he doesn’t think his team needs another quarterback. But just because the Cardinals don’t think they need another quarterback, that doesn’t mean they don’t want another quarterback.

And given how bad the quarterback situation has been in Arizona since Kurt Warner retired, it’s not surprising, with the first round of the draft one month away, that the Cardinals are kicking the tires on quarterback prospects.

Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim and offensive consultant Tom Moore are in Raleigh, North Carolina to work out former North Carolina State quarterback Mike Glennon on Tuesday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The 74-year-old Moore has a very long track record of working with young quarterbacks, while Keim was an offensive lineman at North Carolina State in the 1990s and still follows his alma mater’s program closely.

The strong-armed Glennon is viewed as one of the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft, but he’s not the type of prospect whom the Cardinals would consider with their first-round pick, No. 7 overall. He could, however, make sense with the Cardinals’ second-round pick, No. 38 overall. If the Cardinals were to draft Glennon, he’d join a quarterback depth chart that also includes Drew Stanton, Brian Hoyer, Ryan Lindley and John Skelton.

    Bruce is the worst actor EVER.

    Let it be very clear. The Kansas City Chiefs, Mr. John Dorsey, and Mr. Andy Reid own this years draft. You MUST deal with KC in order to participate.

    Just watch. The KC Gurus’ will wheel and deal, shrewdly outsmarting every other team to manipulate this draft.

    If they take a guy it’s going to be in the 1st. This kid may be good but unless I don’t agree with it but I don’t see a team that needs a QB taking a chance on Smith or even Nassib before him

    The Cards should trade their 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 7th round picks to the Texans for the 27th pick in the first round. That give the Cards the ability to have Glennon on a 5 year contract. Glennon can sit and learn for a year as the O line gets better. With the #7 pick in the draft, the Cards should take Alabama OG Chance Warmack or Oklahoma LT Lane Johnson.
    This trade makes alot of sense for both teams.

    The Cards could get Warmack with the 7th overall pick and get Glennon with thier 2nd round pick and still have the rest of thier picks. There is no need to trade thier entire draft for Glennon…

    Honestly, he could be drafted by the Cards and would probably be the best QB on the team.

    KC will out wit the whole NFL ya ok they suck hits the first pick in the draft

    I’m impressed that Keim and Moore are working him out. Keim is an above average evaluator of personnel and Moore will put him through the test and report back we can do something with this kid or not.

    Wow just watched Glennons highlights and experts breaking don the QB ill pass even in the second round.

    That has to be the worst group of quarterbacks I’ve ever seen. He’s going nuts if he thinks he doesn’t need qb’s.

    Glennon is so thin he has to run around in the shower to get wet.

    And for the third straight year, the Cards want to be the only team in the NFL with five third-string QBs.

    Cards need a QB!! I say draft a QB in all 4 rounds. One of them will pan out, right?

  13. cherrybop says: Mar 26, 2013 7:44 AM

    Bruce will just sign another Steelers player/roster cut; that’s all the Cardinals know how to do.

  14. goninjagoninjagogo says: Mar 26, 2013 7:48 AM

    I’m interested to see how Glennon does. He seemed to show improvement and while it is no indication his former coach has worked with Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson.

  15. djjackson81 says: Mar 26, 2013 5:55 PM,d.cGE. Can I get a witness next years all in draft pick for AZ don’t waiste a high pick on Glennon when there is so much bitchin dept at OL S OLB TE

  16. djjackson81 says: Mar 26, 2013 6:00 PM

    I trust in Keim Arians and Moore to make the correct call here.
