  • At the time Stanton signed a three-year contract with the Cardinals in 2013, he was the best QB on the roster. The team then traded for Carson Palmer and Stanton moved into the backup role. The team did not need him in 2013 or this past season, but in 2014 he appeared in nine games and threw for 1,711 yards and seven touchdowns with five interceptions. Is he a great QB and possibly the QB of the future? No. Is he a good backup? Absolutely. Unless he thinks he'll have a chance to compete for a starting job elsewhere, expect him to be back in Arizona.
