Cardinals | Green expects battle for No. 2 QB spot at training camp

AZCardinals.com reports Arizona Cardinals head coach Dennis Green was complimentary of rookie QB Matt Leinart and expects Leinart and QB John Navarre to have a healthy competition at training camp as they battle for the backup quarterback role. "He's doing well," said Green of the former Heisman Trophy Winner. "I think for a first year player he is further along than most first year quarterbacks would be. He has worked with the two minute offense and he has done a lot of the things we are doing. Part of that is that he comes out of a good pro passing system and part of it is that he was a very talented player when he was in the system, but he is a quick study." "I'm in a good situation playing behind Kurt (Warner) and learning from John," stated Leinart. "John is a smart guy and he has been around here for a few years now so it is a good situation for me. We all obviously want to play so we just have to go out, work hard, compete and be ready when our name is called."
