Could all of the Arizona Cardinals quarterback rumors be for naught?
John Gambadoro (or Gambo, as we know him) of Sports 620 KTAR’s Gambo & Ash said Thursday that the Cardinals could be better off utilizing another stop-gap quarterback and waiting for next year’s strong quarterback draft class.
“There is this thought-process that maybe you just try to get by for one year,” Gambo said. “You hold on to your draft pick and you try to put yourself in a position to get one of those quarterbacks coming out next year because those quarterbacks coming out next year are better than the quarterbacks that came out this year.”
This year’s draft saw the likes of Cam Newton, Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Mallet available and all have the potential to become a great NFL quarterback, but this next draft is expected to see players like Andrew Luck out of Stanford and Matt Barkley from USC. Maybe waiting through another rough offensive season is a good idea.
Until you consider the Cards’ main man, Larry Fitzgerald.
Mark Asher, also known as Ash around here and co-host of Gambo & Ash, said there is no way the Cardinals can wait until the season after next and still have a happy Fitz waiting on yet another quarterback.
It’s already been rumored that Fitz could pack his bags and look for greener end zones, but would he stay another year if the Cardinals opt to bring in a quarterback at a lower price (Bulger, most likely) and hold on to their picks for next year’s draft is a question the Cards organization will have to answer.
