Arizona Cardinals Sign Backup Quarterback Blaine Gabbert

The Arizona Cardinals have added quarterback depth and have signed former 49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

During the NFL Draft process, the Cardinals were linked to drafting a quarterback within the first two rounds with it being either DeShone Kizer out of Notre Dame or Patrick Mahomes out of Texas Tech, Arizona passed on a quarterback in the first round. With Kizer and Mahomes off the board by the Cardinals second pick in the draft, they decided to forgo drafting a quarterback in the draft.

The Cardinals are in a stage where they need to start a development project at quarterback and will likely look at the 2018 NFL Draft for that answer but in the meantime depth at quarterback is the answer. Blaine Gabbert sounds like the answer for now and will be entering training camp where he will be competing against backup quarterback Drew Stanton for the backup role to Carson Palmer.
