Former Cardinals QBs getting some opportunities.

The quarterback situation is very stable for the Arizona Cardinals and now even former quarterbacks for the team are getting some attention. Three players, all who have been on the Cardinals in the last year, have seen some NFL love.

Ryan Lindley, who started a playoff game last season for Arizona after both Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton were lost to injury, had a tryout with the Denver Broncos this week.

Phillip Sims, a tryout player this offseason who lasted until final cuts, also got a tryout. The Cincinnati Bengals gave him a look after Andy Dalton went down with a fractured thumb in his throwing hand.

The Bengals also tried to go after another former Cardinals quarterback. The Miami Dolphins promoted Logan Thomas, the Cardinals' fourth round pick a season ago who was cut after the preseason, to the active roster. Thomas had been on Miami's practice squad all year excluding Week 1. Ian Rapoport reported the move to keep Thomas in Miami was to keep the Bengals from signing him off their practice squad.

With the movement, it is a nice reminder of how good things are right now for Arizona. And with the Bengals' situation, who had an ideal QB situation as well, it is another reminder as to how quickly things can change.
