There has been rumblings already in Arizona about the Cardinals brass not being happy about quarterback Matt Leinart, or offseason pickup Derek Anderson, but now it appears that is not the case. Cards GM Rod Graves says for now the team is happy with what they have at the QB spot.
This means that former Rams QB Marc Bulger is not on their wish list. For now.
“We are not actively engaged in discussion with Marc Bulger,” Graves said Friday. “If he is interested, we’re appreciative, but right now, we’re focused on the guys that we have here. Matt has done a great job so far, but so has Derek Anderson and our young guys (rookies Max Hall and John Skelton).
“I’ve learned to never say never. Who knows what may happen? (Coach) Ken (Whisenhunt) hasn’t made any final decisions on who will be the starter at quarterback. Right now, we’re not looking outside of our group. That’s not our focus.”
Leinart is supposed to be the starter when training camp starts, but he also was supposed to be the starter a few years back when Ken Whisenhunt pulled the plug and went with Kurt Warner.
Anderson was a pickup when he was released by the Browns, and was expected to come in and push Leniart, who has been mostly waiting in the wings to be the teams starter since he arrived with the 10th overall pick in 2006.
