Report: Cardinals looking at Kyle Orton

While quarterbacks like Donovan McNabb (not going to happen) and Carson Palmer (Bengals probably won’t let this happen) have been linked to the Cardinals signal-caller spot, 3TV in Phoenix is reporting that Arizona has an interest in current Broncos QB Kyle Orton.

Orton Apparently, the Cardinals have been in contact with the Broncos to gauge their interest in dealing him, and though the TV station reports the talks aren’t yet serious, Orton could provide another option to the Cardinals if their courtship of Eagles QB Kevin Kolb fails.

It’d be interesting to see if Denver actually had interest in trading Orton, especially with Tim Tebow possibly waiting in the wings – I’m just not sure I see this happening – but it’s clear that since the Cardinals didn’t take a quarterback in last week’s draft (and considering, gulp, Derek Anderson is still the starter), they’ll need to find somebody in the offseason to run the offense.

Orton, if they could get him, would be a pretty good option. At least he has a solid record of playing well in the NFL (unlike, say, Kolb).

Poor reporting, since Derek Anderson hasn't been the starter in a while. The starter is John Skelton. As for Orton, that's now five quarterbacks the Cardinals have lined up. Well, someone's got to be right.

Great Fit!  Orton can hit Lloyde with the deep ball so why not Fitz?!?!?

Pull that trigger....

I'm not interested in seeing if the Kevin Kolb hype is legit; so far, he hasn't played that impressively to have earned it. I'd rather the Cards get a proven QB like Orton than find out the hard way a big question mark is a big zero (my prediction for Kolb).

Palmer would be nice, but it's not like he lacked weapons in Cincinnati. Chad Johnson for a long time was one of the best WRs in the game and they always had serviceable second and third options. Last year, TO was great. Yet, Palmer had a ton of underwhelming games in Cinci...not all his fault...but he has to shoulder some of the blame.

It seems like which ever direction the Cards go in they will get a must needed upgrade to the position. I do want to see Kolb in Arizona though. Im extremely curious to see if the hype around Kolb is true or if its just that, Hype.

I would bet that the Cardinals end up with one of the following, McNabb, Kolb, Orton, or Palmer. They know they need to upgrade the QB position and soon before Larry Fitzgerald gets tired of it and demands a trade or leaves town!

I think their just a good QB away from being a really good team!

I'm not surprised the Cardinals would be interested in Orton.  He'd be a great fit there.  I'm more surprised there hasn't been any talk of the Vikings having interest.  He's an Iowa kid and would be a good fit in Minnesota too, but Musgrave must not be interested or the Vikings feel they'd need to give up too much to Denver.  Versus Kolb (too expensive) or McNabb (too old) I'd take Orton.

That is an interesting article with Orton. I was thinking the vikings might be interested in him. Out of all the QB"s possibly available through free agency or trade he was one that was most intriguing. He had a great year with the Broncos and was very impressive until he got hurt.

Probably a good fit in Arizona. A better fit in the vikings I think. We'll see what Elway has to say when the NFL resumes and the lockout is officially over.
