08:03 AM ET 06.17 | The lockout makes for some interesting offseason catch-playing partners in informal workouts, one of which reportedly involved Kyle Orton. Orton -- the Broncos' starting quarterback if the season today -- has been mentioned as possible trade bait with the quarterback-desperate Arizona Cardinals. He worked out Thursday with Cards star receiver Larry Fitzgerald in Minnesota. Broncos' receiver Eric Decker, who starred at the University of Minnesota, also joined Fitzgerald's famous workouts Thursday. Fitzgerald tweeted proof here, saying "Me, Kyle Orton, @E_decker (Eric Decker) and Kyle's father after today's training here Minnesota." Fitzgerald sent out another tweet saying he's known Orton for a while so don't read anything into their meeting.

"Catch-playing partners"...tee hee!

So, does this mean the Cardinals are moving to Minnesota after the Vikings move to LA? Or is Kyle Orton the new host of Prarie Home Companion?

Sure signs of the coming Apocalypse. When the sea gives up its dead and Andy Reid gets down to a 34 waist, prepare to meet your Maker.

Is your cell on? Like, man, they're in town to ask your expert advice. Fer sure they can't get any from the NFL.

They pulled 104 bodies from that Air France plane that went down in the ocean 2 years ago, lets hope Andy doesn't start doing commercials for Slim Fast.

Maybe they are scoping all the hotties at the "U". I did that in my younger years.

So you see? They are right to go to you for advice.

A starting QB throwing passes to teammates in Minnesota before training camp? That hasn't been seen in a few years.
