INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Cardinals general manager Rod Graves is aware of rampant talk that Arizona could be in the mix to land Peyton Manning. He didn't rule it out Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine
Yes, the Cardinals seem happy with the quarterbacks already on the roster -- Kevin Kolb, Max Hall, John Skelton and Richard Bartel. But Graves did acknowledge that the team is looking to improve everywhere -- and that could mean adding another quarterback. He is barred from talking specifically about Manning because of the league's tampering rules.
Hall and Bartel are both restricted free agents, while Kolb and Skelton are under contract. Kolb is due a 7 million roster bonus in March.
"Well, I think we are happy with what we have, but as coach (Ken) Whisenhunt just said, we're about opportunities to get better," Graves said. "This is a competitive game, and we want to get better. If we can, so be it. But right now, we believe we have an outstanding group of quarterbacks, and we're preparing to play with that group of quarterbacks."
Graves also said the Cardinals hope to work out new deals for defensive lineman Calais Campbell and cornerback Richard Marshall.

Before anyone barges in here with pitchforks and gunpowder, please remember that I am a Miami Dolphins fan and I’m incredibly bitter about my favorite NFL team’s struggles. That said, I’m not exactly on the same page just yet as the people who are behind the new website, Manning To Miami.

According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Cardinals general manager Rod Graves and head coach Ken Wisenhunt indicated that they’re happy with what they have at the quarterback position, but they’re also open to getting better.
If the Cardinals still weren’t interested in Manning, they wouldn’t have left the door wide open by saying they’re open to getting better...

Indianapolis General Manager Ryan Grigson issued more not-so-subtle signals that the Colts and star quarterback Peyton Manning are headed for a divorce Thursday, though it’s not likely to happen until at or near the March 8 deadline.

With the Combine in full swing, Thursday was a busy day on the NFL docket, as a multitude of coaches and general managers were made available to the media.
Among the bunch was Rex Ryan, who, as we all know by now, isn’t shy about letting his feelings be known.
