This will be the quarterback competition to watch. With the Cardinals most likely only keep three quarterbacks it will be a battle between Logan Thomas and rookie Phillip Sims. Thomas played a limited role with the Cardinals last season, but Bruce Arians likes what he has seen from Phillip Sims, who was an undrafted free agent.

Based on what the coaching staff has said and how Logan Thomas preformed in 2014, Phillip Sims will win the third string quarterback role.
Sims was signed after the 2015 draft, after he was invited to try out with the team. He played his college career at three different schools; Alabama (2010-2011), Virginia (2011-2013), and Winston-Salem State (2013-2014). He has been apart of an outstanding college football program in Alabama, so he should be football smart.
In 2014, while at Winston-Salem State he was 118-of-198 for 1,560 yards, with 15 touchdowns and only four interceptions. Based on Sims numbers he should be a great quarterback, but you have to remember that when he played at Winston-Salem he played against weaker talent.
Phillip Sims is more than just a ‘camp arm,’ he has a very big chance to beat out Logan Thomas and be the emergency quarterback on game days.
