The Arizona Cardinals waived former Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley Tuesday afternoon.


McSorley, has been in the NFL since the Baltimore Ravens selected him in the sixth-round of the 2019 draft. McSorley hung around with Baltimore for almost three seasons before being signed by the Cardinals last November.

McSorley saw plenty time in the preseason this summer, starting all three of Arizona’s games. He threw for 536 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

Despite not making the 53-man roster, it’s likely that McSorley will end up on Arizona’s practice squad.

McSorley, of course, is one of the best quarterbacks in Penn State history. In three seasons as a starter, McSorley helped lead Penn State to the Big Ten championship in 2016, a Fiesta Bowl win at the end of the 2017 season and a 33-9 record overall.

Statistically, McSorley finished his Penn State career with the school’s all-time record for passing yards and touchdowns.
