Attention, Larry Fitzgerald: Cardinals sign QB Drew Stanton to 3-year deal

When you've run out Kevin Kolb @KevinKolb_4, Ryan Lindley, Brian Hoyer and John Skelton at quarterback the past couple of seasons, you really don't have any other direction to go but up. The Cardinals hope Drew Stanton @drewstanton represents improvement. They signed Stanton to a three-year contract Wednesday worth $8.2 million.
Per FOX Sports' Alex Marvez, Stanton said Wednesday that the Cardinals have "promised" he will get a shot at being the team's starter come Week 1.

Fantasy Analysis:

Stanton isn't some diamond in the rough. He will turn 29 in May, possess subpar accuracy and has thrown five touchdowns and nine interceptions in 187 career attempts. He hasn't played since 2010, but he spent last season as the Colts' backup quarterback, so Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians knows what he is getting with this signing. Kolb might end up being cut soon, but even if he stays, you've got to think that Stanton has decent odds of claiming the gig for himself out of camp. The other options aren't exactly daunting. In other words, it could be another long year for Larry Fitzgerald @LarryFitzgerald, Andre Roberts @ARob12_Cards and Michael Floyd @MichaelMFloyd. But hey, maybe Stanton can surprise us in Arians' offense.
