Report: Arizona To Sign Former Penn State Quarterback Trace McSorley

It appears as though former Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley is heading to a new team.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Arizona Cardinals are signing McSorley off the Baltimore Ravens practice squad and will place him on their 53-man roster.

Arizona’s quarterback depth has been thin since the injury to starter Kyler Murray. Backup Colt McCoy has taken Murray’s place and was outstanding on Sunday in the Cardinals 23-13 win at Seattle. McCoy went 35 of 44 for 328 yards and two touchdowns. It was McCoy’s first 300-yard passing game in the NFL since 2014.

McSorley will now serve as McCoy’s backup until Murray is able to return to the starting lineup.

The Ravens drafted McSorley in the 6th round of the 2019 NFL Draft and he spent the 2019 and 2020 seasons on Baltimore’s roster. However, this season he was replaced as Lamar Jackson’s backup by Tyler Huntley and instead was placed on the Ravens practice squad.

In three career NFL games, McSorley completed 3-of-10 passes for 90 yards and a TD.
