6. Drew Stanton, Arizona Cardinals, 31 years old
Drew Stanton has spent nine NFL seasons backing up quarterbacks in Detroit, Indianapolis and for the past three seasons, the Arizona Cardinals.
He has the size to play the position at 6’3″ and 243 pounds, plus he was selected in the second round back in 2007, meaning at one point there was some promise for the QB out of Michigan State.
In 2014 he had eight starts, and led the Cards to a 5-3 record, keeping the team afloat while starter Carson Palmer fought back from injury. During that time he completed 132-of-240 passes for 1,711 yards with seven touchdowns and five interceptions.
He may not scream “elite” but there could be plenty to work with, at least while the team looks for a permanent solution to their long-standing issue.
For what it’s worth, Stanton should be brought to the team simply based on his celebration game, which is unmatched across the league.
