The scrutiny of a highly publicized battle between Kevin Kolb and John Skelton has allowed a third quarterback to go quietly about his business. And although it is far too early to pass judgment on Ryan Lindley, color me intrigued.
This is an important time for the sixth-round pick out of San Diego State. The competition for the Cardinals' starting job has limited his reps during practices, so much of his evaluation by coaches will come during preseason games. Lindley is expected to see some time in Sunday's Hall of Fame Game vs. New Orleans in Canton, Ohio, but he'll get more extensive work later in the exhibition schedule.
