The Arizona Cardinals have signed former Texans quarterback Jeff Driskel to a one-year contract.

Driskel was drafted by the 49ers in the sixth round of the 2016 draft, however, he never played a single snap in San Francisco. Instead, he played one season with the Bengals, one with the Lions, and one with the Broncos, before playing two with the Texans from 2021–2023.

The 29-year-old holds a 1-9 record as a starting quarterback, but he did have some sparks in 2019. During this season with the Lions, Driskel averaged 228 yards per game and threw four touchdowns in the three games he played in.

Driskel will be replacing Trace McSorley as the Cardinals’ third string quarterback. McSorley played in six games last season with the Cardinals before signing with the Patriots last week.

Ahead of Jeff lies David Blough, veteran Colt McCoy, and of course Kyler Murray, who is currently recovering from ACL surgery.

It still remains unknown who will start at quarterback for the Cardinals come opening weekend this fall.
