The Arizona Cardinals will be looking for a new starting quarterback. Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert are not a long-term solution.

The Cardinals could look at soon-to-be free agent A.J. McCarron has a potential quarterback target. Sure, McCarron is one of the least expereinced quarterbacks that we will address.

However, McCarron will finally be able to break free from four-years with the Cincinnati Bengals, where he was basically a back-up behind Andy Dalton. McCarron was nearly traded to the Cleveland Browns on Halloween at the trade deadline; however, the Browns botched the paperwork causing McCarron to stay up.

McCarron would have likely been the team’s starter if he was traded. However, we will never know, because the trade never went through.

He has not made a start in the past two seasons. Yet, he appeared in four games over that time, going 7 of 14 for 66 passing yards.

His best season came during the 2015 season when he made three starts and appeared in seven games. He went 79 of 119 for 854 passing yards. He had six touchdowns and two interceptions.

McCarron is in the same boat that Mike Glennon was in last off-season. McCarron has been mentioned as a potential NFL starter for years, yet he has never been given a full-time responsiblity to do the job.

Glennon barely played in his final season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2016, as he appeared in three games, going 10 of 11 for 75 yards. He had a touchdown pass.

Yet, the Chicago Bears signed him to a three-year, $45 million deal with the team. With the success of No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Mitchell Trubisky, the team will likely cut ties with Glennon this off-season.

Somebody will give McCarron the opportunity, as the Bears gave Glennon.
