Detroit Lions v Buffalo Bills

The Arizona Cardinals have signed free agent quarterback Drew Stanton.



Stanton was drafted by the Detroit Lions with the 43rd pick of the 2007 NFL Draft but did not play a snap that season as he was placed on the injured reserve. Stanton backed up Dan Orlovsky, Daunte Culpepper, and Matthew Stafford in Detroit before signing with the New York Jets in March of 2012. After the acquisition of Tim Tebow, Stanton was traded to the Indianapolis Colts where he backed up Andrew Luck.

This season, Stanton has a chance to challenge for the starting job in Arizona.
