    MANNING retires is it MARSHALL'S turn?​

    Since being drafted by the Arizona Cardinals, QB Shaquelle Marshall has never been given the keys to the car. He has had seasons where he mopped up the end of some dismal seasons but he has never been the guy on day 1.

    Well with the Cardinals releasing Kevin Kolb last offseason and the retirement of Hall of Famer Peyton Manning who started 15 games for the Cards last year, it's finally his turn right??

    Not so fast. He is getting the Tebow treatment. The Cards were determined to sign veteran Jay Cutler as a potential starter and even drafted Clay Ozycz a 6'6 240 pound flame thrower from UL Lafayette to battle with him in camp for the starter's role.

    GM Sdid's take: "Shaq needs to earn his position. We finally made the playoffs and we intend on continuing that success. It starts with the Quarterback and we will have one in place that can keep the ball in our hands."

    Offseason Notes
    -Peyton Manning hung up the cleats. Did's take: "We are thankful to have such a classy individual lead this team the past year. He taught this oranization about what it takes to win consistently. He is a first ballot HOF player."

    - Cards add veteran WR Miles Austin in free agency. Dids take: "Miles has something left in the tank and we wanted to give our new starter options in the offense and become less dependent on Fitz."

    - Cards resign restrited free agents Brandon Keith, Andre Roberts, and Richard Marshall. Did's take: "All three of these guys have started a bunch of games and have been core pieces to the puzzle in this oranization. I'm pleased to welcome them back."

    - 2nd rd pick Center Colby Polk out of Western Carolina will be the starter replacing veteran Lyle Sendelein. Did's take: "He better be ready to go."

    - Cards resigned young stars Jarrett Jean Louis and CJ Griffin to 3 year deals. Did's take : "These guys are going to be the face of the franchise and are key to an emerging defensive unit."

    -Cards add depth in draft find one starter. "This draft was top heavy and we saved money moving down and giving up picks. The goal of this offseason is now 90 percent complete we have one more UFA we would like to grab and we will be ready to compete."
