Due to the fact that this is game number four of the exhibition schedule, the 2-1 Red Birds will most likely not see Peyton Manning under center. Regulars usually sit out the final preseason contest. If they play, they may compete in one series but that's all.

So it's most likely that quarterback Carson Palmer will not compete for the Cardinals tonight. Drew Stanton and Ryan Lindley will probably see extensive time under center.

Palmer has been in the NFL for 11 years now and knows the pressure that comes with being Arizona's new signal-caller once the regular season begins on Sept. 8.

"That's the game in this league," Palmer explained to "I'm used to that. I've been playing quarterback my whole life so I'm used to the pressures that come with the position, the good, the bad. Obviously the quarterback plays an integral part of every team's success."

Cardinals sign tight end Richard Quinn

With starting tight end Rob Housler currently on the sidelines with a high ankle sprain, the Cards have signed tight end Richard Quinn. Quinn was cut by the Cincinnati Bengals earlier this week.

Quinn was a second-round pick of the Broncos in 2009, but got cut by the Broncos in 2011. He played one game for the Redskins that year, but has not seen any regular season action since then.

The Cardinals were at 76 players on their roster before Quinn’s arrival. They have released safety Javon Harris and tight end Mickey Shuler to get to the 75-man limit.
