The Cardinals are upbeat about Drew Stanton and Brian Hoyer, but Palmer is a present-day upgrade over both. Adding Palmer to the mix also would allow the Cardinals to use their No. 7 pick on an offensive tackle. Palmer is a plodder who must be protected well -- not an Arizona specialty of late -- but he'd give Arians a known quantity under center.
Despite starting just two games in the NFL and losing out to Russell Wilson in Seattle last season, Seahawks backup Matt Flynn remains the subject of trade rumors. CBSSports.com reported Tuesday that the Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills have spoken to the Seahawks about acquiring Flynn. Seahawks general manager John Schneider isn't hell-bent on shopping the quarterback, but a trade makes sense if Seattle can find a read-option prospect behind Wilson.
He's 31-19 as an NFL starter, but Young likely won't garner much interest on the market. Turning 30 in May, Young hasn't started a game since 2011, but he told Gregg Rosenthal on Tuesday that he has improved his footwork, rhythm and anticipation. NFL.com's Gil Brandt said Young -- after fizzling out with the Bills and Philadelphia Eagles -- "put on a show" at his University of Texas Pro Day outing.
Young claims "teams with interest" are hovering, but only one franchise makes sense. Here's to you, Al Davis.
Jason Campbell landed with the Cleveland Browns, so Colt McCoy is all but out. Reportedly on the trading block, McCoy never was a fit for new Browns coach Rob Chudzinski's vertical passing attack. McCoy's arm strength is an issue, and he isn't starting material, but he's a solid depth move and a team-first player who never complained amid the chaos in C-Town.
Tebow's days as a starting quarterback are on life support, but his NFL story might not be over. Not if one of the NFL's more creative teams can find a way to use his gifts. The Jets were a disastrous match from the start. Their inability to make use of Tebow was astounding. While the league's visionaries voyaged into a read-option wonderland, the Jets were left twiddling their thumbs trying to figure out the Wildcat.
