Familiarity will help Skelton if called upon
If that is the case for the Cardinals, they will at least bring in a backup who already has some experience within the offensive system.
"He played well for us down the stretch last year when he got his opportunity and he can make all the throws," wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said.
Skelton started four games as a rookie last year, winning two games and throwing for two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Experience is key at the quarterback position and head coach Ken Whisenhunt believes Skelton has grown since last year.
"I think it helps from his perspective, being more comfortable," Whisenhunt said. "I know the guys in the huddle are probably more comfortable with him from the way he calls the plays and handles the situation."
If Skelton does get the start, the Cardinals will be ready for him.
"I think guys are comfortable with him, we understand who he is, what his strengths are and we know that we have to go out there and play better ourselves," Fitzgerald said.
