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.
