Two disappointing high profile quarterbacks are better than one.
That’s the theory the Cardinals have anyway, following the news that the team is interested in signing David Carr.
Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic tweeted the news, which makes perfect sense. Carr can commiserate with Matt Leinart about the pressures of getting drafted too high, while playing the dutiful backup role if required.
We wouldn’t see a true quarterback training camp competition emerging, but it’s telling the Cardinals have made finding an alternative to Leinart at priority. They need options.
Carr was ranked second in PFT’s free agency quarterback rankings, so there aren’t many better choices on the open market.
Our free agent rankings, of course, are foolproof. Maybe the Cardinals have been reading them.
