PHOENIX - It's time to play guess who'll be the Cardinals quarterback next season and according to a source they have a new contestant.

The Channel 3 sports department has learned that the Cardinals have had preliminary contact with the Broncos about the availability of Kyle Orton.

A source tells 3TV’s Tim Ring, the discussions would not be categorized as serious but the Broncos believe the Cardinals have an interest in Orton as a “Plan B” if they can't work out a deal for Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback Kevin Kolb.

Orton has thrown 71 touchdown passes in a five-year career in Denver and Chicago.
