I almost threw another bold and important looking update on my earlier Carson Palmer rantings which also conveniently included Tony Romo and Kevin Kolb musings. Yes, all the quarterbacks are doing things.

But then I decided that with Palmer reports coming through your windows (hide your wife) at alarming rates all day, let’s start fresh. This will be the place in which we celebrate one final bit of comedy supplied by the Palmer era in Oakland.

Detroit Lions v Buffalo Bills

The Arizona Cardinals have signed free agent quarterback Drew Stanton.

 

 

Stanton was drafted by the Detroit Lions with the 43rd pick of the 2007 NFL Draft but did not play a snap that season as he was placed on the injured reserve. Stanton backed up Dan Orlovsky, Daunte Culpepper, and Matthew Stafford in Detroit before signing with the New York Jets in March of 2012. After the acquisition of Tim Tebow, Stanton was traded to the Indianapolis Colts where he backed up Andrew Luck.

This season, Stanton has a chance to challenge for the starting job in Arizona.

 

Cleveland Browns v Denver Broncos
Josh Cribbs is deciding between two teams and neither of them are the Browns. The Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot reports the ace kick returner has narrowed his choices down to the Patriots and Cardinals, according to her source.

The Pats are looking to replace Julian Edelman and Josh Demps while the Cardinals probably don’t want Patrick Peterson putting his body on the line returning kicks while honing his cornerback skills.

Cribbs amassed 1,178 yards on kick returns, including three 40+ runs. He ran for 457 yards on punt returns, extending seven of them beyond 20 yards.

Detroit Lions v Arizona Cardinals
It’s the end of an era in Arizona, as the Cardinals have announced strong safety Adrian Wilson will be released today.

Wilson spent 12 years with the Cardinals, making five Pro Bowls. Wilson played more games for the franchise than any other player since the team moved to Arizona in 1988. The Cardinals will save $3 million in salary cap space with the move. Read the rest of this entry »

Gus Bradley is having himself a time in the wasteland that is the NFL head coaching job market. Bradley had a seven hour interview with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie on Tuesday, but that wasn’t enough to sign a deal. The Eagles quickly moved on, hiring Chip Kelly earlier this afternoon.

Bradley is now in Jacksonville, interviewing with Shad Khan and the crew tasked with making the Jaguars relevant again. New GM Dave Caldwell is rumored to be interested in San Francisco DC Greg Roman, who’s a friend from his college days.

Jacksonville and Arizona are the final two teams looking for a head coach. Arizona, attempting to beat the Raiders for most incompetent management in the league, are interested in Bruce Arians.

Mike Florio has the details:

Arians, we’re told, wanted the Chicago job, where he was a finalist.  Though it’s believed he won’t be leaving the Colts for any head-coaching job, the Cardinals’ vacancy is regarded as one of the worst available, given the absence of a great quarterback and the presence of increasingly stiff competition in the division.

Cardinals Football! Several candidates have turned Arizona down — including Mike McCoy, who will attempt to salvage Philip Rivers’ sputtering career. To make matters worse, their hesitation has angered defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who has interviewed twice for the job. The words Michael Bidwill and due diligence don’t mesh.
