Palmer would interest Cardinals

08:07 AM ET 03.26 | What's going on in the mind of Cardinals coach Bruce Arians? Arians loves [quarterbacks] but he wants just one. At least one as the starter. He subscribes to the theory that if you have two, you have none. So he will pick a starter this spring. Drew Stanton is at the top of the depth chart now. That status could change. If the Raiders end up parting with Carson Palmer, I would expect the Cardinals to have interest. I also think the Cardinals will draft one, but they don't appear anxious to do so with seventh overall pick. Asked how he felt about speculation the Cardinals would take a quarterback in the first round, Arians said: "I think all speculators look at need and not the draft board."

Looking for your next Warner?

Palmer is 33. He's almost old enough to be Pop Warner.

But, I have a totally irrational hatred of this team, going back to when they were in St. Louis. There's just something about perpetual mediocrity that I can't stand. So, I welcome the news that they're looking at Carson Palmer.

And thanks again, Steelers.

He can't be worse than Skelton and isn't as injury prone as Kolb.

I would think they would definitely have interest, given the lack of an NFL-caliber quarterback on the existing roster.

Skelton is horrible, Stanton isn't the answer, niether is Hoyer. Lindley is a maybe, but needs time. Arians should look at any realistic option.

As a Niner fan that would be great . Washed up Palmer throwing 3 to 4 picks every time We face the Cards and handing us victories.

Palmer has never really been the same since his knee injury. But he wasn't always the bum everyone is making him out to be now.

Is it just me or are the Cardinals ALWAYS looking for a QB??

This franchise is walking proof of need for a quality NFL QB..

The cards would be better off using their money on O line and defensive backs than Carson Palmer. They're not going to win the division or a wild card this year, so put the building blocks in place and draft a QB next year. Who knows, Stanton may surprise people once he's given a chance. If not, draft one next year with a likely top 10 pick (seeing as they play Seattle and 49ers 4x, and St. Louis 2x - that's a lot of losses just in the division). Palmer doesn't make them that much better.

too many needs for the cards to waste a pick on this crop of quarterbacks. have palmer's agent on speed dial w/ an intern scouting all social media waiting for his impending release.

If they'd do that, I'd quit my job for a chance to earn $4 million dollars being their clipboard holder.

But if they don't fix that O-line, no, I'm no longer interested.

Palmer would interest Cardinals as a tackling dummy.

March 26, 2013  04:46 PM ET

If released, Palmer would be better off going to Jacksonville. He's too old to survive many games behind the Cards O-Line.

Palmer's numbers last year weren't that bad, and you can't put the shoddy record all on him. I see where he's coming from though not wanting to restructure his contract AGAIN. He did it last year and took a huge pay cut. Pretty crappy to ask him to restructure two years in a row. I think he still has some left in the tank.

Why would the Cards add another QB to their roster that can't play?

Just following the Jetss model for finding a QB, perhaps???

Kind of but not really. He took the cut in his salary but they gave it all back to him in a signing bonus for the new contract. If I were him I would just not restructure so that they release me and I could go somewhere else.
