Jay Gruden reportedly a head coach candidate for the Arizona Cardinals

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The team has not yet said it, but Jason La Canfora says that the Cards are going to take a look at the Bengals OC.

The Arizona Cardinals still have only "revealed" two current head coaching candidates, but there is now a supposed new name that will be a candidate to replace Ken Whisenhunt. Jason La Canfora tweeted that Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator is the newest possibility connected to Arizona.

La Canfora is not saying that an interview is set up, or that the team has asked Cincinnati permission to speak with him, but now that the Bengals are eliminated from the playoffs, Gruden's name will now come up for more teams.

The Cards have only announced that defensive coordinator Ray Horton and Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy are possibilities. Todd Haley and now Gruden are being mentioned.

Over at Cincy Jungle, fans are laying some blame for the playoff loss on Gruden's game planning.

How about Gruden as a candidate? Good? Bad? Better?
