Coach Whisenhunt does not expect QB move Tuesday

The Arizona Cardinals really want to find a new quarterback, but they’ll have to wait until at least Wednesday to finish the search.

Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt, speaking to the media for the first time since the lockout ended, said he would be surprised if something happened Tuesday.

“We’ve made proposals, we’ve talked, we’ve exchanged ideas, but to get something nailed down and then to think that you’re going to get something worked out, whether it’s a trade or even just a contract,” he said, “especially when you have other teams involved, it’s going to be difficult.

“It’s not from a lack of trying, I’ll tell you that much.”

Whisenhunt, never one to show his hand until the last possible moment, could be playing this one close to the vest.

There are some who think the team already has a deal in place for Philadelphia backup Kevin Kolb, and that the teams are waiting to announce the agreement so that nobody thinks they negotiated during the lockout.

No matter what, though, it seems as if Cardinals fans will have to wait at least one more day until they can finally move on from the QB disaster carousel that was last season.
