SEATTLE - DECEMBER 6: Alex Smith #11 of the San Francisco 49ers looks to make a pass play during their NFL game against the Seattle Seahawks on December 6, 2009 at Qwest Field in Seattle, Washington. The Seahawks defeated the 49ers 20-17. (Photo by Otto Greule Jr./Getty Images)
It’s no wonder as soon as all the quarterbacks at the NFL combine worked out, that rumors of the Cardinals getting in the hunt for Alex Smith are popping up. Bruce Arians looked more like a fashion photographer than head coach at the NFL Combine, but it also indicates how interested he was in the 2013 quarterback crop. According to Kent Somers of azcentral.com, the Cardinals are interested in acquiring the 49ers backup. Somers writes: ‘The Cardinals are exploring the possibility of trading for 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, according to an NFL source, but no deal is in place. It’s unknown how serious the Cardinals are about trading for a quarterback for the second time in less than two years. But they are intrigued by Smith’s experience, intelligence and talents, according to the source. They believe much of his struggles early in his career can be attributed to changes in coaches and offensive systems.’ var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • WTF!!Give Vince Young a chance too!!Invite him to try-outs PLEASE!! Whats the worse case scenario for just letting him try out? That you may find out he is still a damn good QB? Do a side-by-side comparison with Smith, and Kolb, if he's still around.
  • Take a serious look at quarterback Vince Young. He's 6'-5",.. healthy,.. mobile,.. has a strong arm,.. has playoff experience,.. a proven winner in the NFL (31-19) and plays at a high level.... You can't go wrong by bringing this guy in for a TRYOUT....
