Another ESPN report has the Cardinals bringing in Chargers’ quarterback Charlie Whitehurst for a free agent visit. Interestingly, Whitehurst is a restricted free agent, so signing him could cost the Cardinals a third-round draft pick. But the reality is this: If the Cards deem the quarterbacks available in the draft weak as a class and yet they want to draft someone young, why not spend a third-round pick (the Cards have two after the Anquan Boldin trade) on a QB they think has potential? He’s been around a while, coming into the league in 2006, even though he’s never thrown a regular-season pass.
UPDATE: It also looks like Derek Anderson will soon be part of the available quarterback mix since the Browns are apparently going to release him.
