TEMPE, Ariz. — The Cardinals are downplaying it, but there’s no doubt that the San Diego Chargers have a practice squad quarterback with a whole lot of information about Arizona coach Bruce Arians’ team.
After all, Ryan Lindley spent all of last season and all of the preseason with the Cardinals.
Arizona cut Lindley a week ago, and the Chargers picked up the ex-San Diego State quarterback as a practice squad addition over the weekend.
The Cardinals are home against San Diego in their season opener next Monday night, and Arians is well aware that Lindley can provide some knowledge of the coach’s system. Lindley had the playbook for the last 18 months.
