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).
