The Cardinals are starting their fourth quarterback of the season against the 49ers this Sunday, a pretty clear sign that they are going to be in the market for a player who can give them less quantity and more quality at the position come the offseason.
One player who could be on their radar screen is a guy who will be carrying a clipboard on the other sideline in Week 17. Alex Smith lost his job with the Niners and he’s widely expected to be on the move to a team that needs a starter once the season comes to an end.
Cardinals guard Adam Snyder used to play with Smith in San Francisco and would be down with a reunion in the desert. Snyder said that if he was asked, he’d tell the Cardinals that Smith has “unbelievable character” and is a leader whose benching didn’t much sense.
