Drew Stanton: Cards' Starting QB?
Update: Stanton stands as Arizona's likely starting quarterback, after the first week of free agency. When asked at the NFL owners meetings Monday if the team's 2013 starter at QB was on the roster, coach Bruce Arians said, "Yes, we have a very capable one in Drew Stanton. Drew knows the offense, he is more than capable of doing it. If he is our guy, I am comfortable."

Recommendation: Despite the semi-endorsement, there will likely be a competition during the offseason program that could extend into training camp, especially if the Cardinals select a quarterback in the early rounds of April's NFL Draft. Stanton certainly has an advantage over any signal caller already (or potentially) on the roster, having logged time last season as a backup in Arians' system with the Colts. In any case, the battle will be an interesting one to monitor in the coming months.
