Cards tell Drew Stanton he'll have a chance to start when Carson Palmer's done

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Quarterback Drew Stanton’s contract expired at the end of the 2015 season, but he didn’t wade into the free agent market in March.

Stanton re-signed with the Cardinals for two years before free agency opened, leaving him set to serve as Carson Palmer’s backup for a fourth season. Stanton’s deal includes $4.5 million in guaranteed money, but no immediate chance to lead the offense.

He told Alex Marvez and Rick Neuheisel of Sirius XM NFL Radio that being in a place he and his family enjoy was more important in the short term and that the Cardinals have told him he’ll have a chance to be the next starter in Arizona.

Fantasy Impact: 

Palmer will turn 37 this year. Stanton knows the offense well and would be in a great situation with a group of WRs who are both established yet still seem to have some upside. The big question is how long will Palmer stick around and perform at a high level.
