Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Clear backup QB in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton has a stranglehold on the backup quarterback job in Arizona, Dan Bickley of The Arizona Republic reports.

Head coach Bruce Arians stated the obvious Tuesday, but questions were raised after Blaine Gabbert led six scoring drives in the preseason through three games, four of them resulting in touchdowns. Clearly, Stanton's knowledge of the offense is the overriding factor in Arians' mind. The only question now is whether Gabbert's performance is enough to keep three signal-callers on the 53-man roster.

Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Still has hold on backup job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Blaine Gabbert still has a long ways to go in his bid to unseat Stanton as the backup quarterback, Bob McManaman of reports.

Gabbert created a bit of buzz with his strong showing in the Hall of Fame Game, but Stanton's wealth of experience in Arians' system still leaves him as a strong favorite to retain the backup job. However, Gabbert's presence and his overall performance thus far does put more pressure on Stanton than what he's faced the past couple years.

Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Unavailable for HOF game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton won't be available for Thursday's Hall of Fame game against the Cowboys, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Head coach Bruce Arians is giving the elder statesmen of the QB room (Stanton and starter Carson Palmer) the night off, thereby giving Blaine Gabbert an opportunity to display his knowledge of the offense. Stanton is in a pseudo competition with Gabbert for the backup role, but with four years in the system, the former would likely only lose the spot if Gabbert impresses thoroughly in the preseason.

Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Competing for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton will compete with Blaine Gabbert to serve as Carson Palmer's primary backup this season, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Stanton has been called upon multiple times to keep the offense afloat without Palmer the past four years. However, Stanton's performance was less than inspiring last season, including an 11-for-28 performance for 124 yards and two touchdowns in his sole start in Week 5 for a concussed Palmer. Gabbert didn't fare much better in San Francisco before he was pushed to clipboard duty by Colin Kaepernick, but his 6-foot-4, 235-pound frame and presumed arm strength fits the mold of QB desired by head coach Bruce Arians. In the end, whoever impresses most in the preseason between Stanton and Gabbert may land the only roster spot behind Palmer if the need arises elsewhere in the locker room.

Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Serves as efficient game manager in Week 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Stanton completed 11 of 28 passes for 124 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's 33-21 victory over the 49ers. He also lost two yards on two rushes.

The veteran backup did just enough to help the Cardinals grab the much-needed win, while also benefitting from the three turnovers the defense forced and a standout effort from David Johnson. Stanton found Larry Fitzgerald for both of his touchdown passes, with the initial one coming from 21 yards out following the first of two picks of Blaine Gabbert. Stanton then led a six-play, 71-yard drive early in the third quarter that he capped off with a 29-yard scoring dart to Fitzgerald, extending the Cardinals lead to 21-7 at the time. In completing well under 50 percent of his passes and averaging a meager 4.4 yards per attempt, the 32-year-old was clearly not the driving force behind the win, but also didn't turn the ball over. With 11 days before a Week 6 Monday night matchup against the Jets, Carson Palmer (concussion) stands a good chance of returning as the starter, with Stanton reverting to his customary backup role.
