Player Outlook

Drew Stanton will return to the Cardinals as the backup to Carson Palmer. He barely played in 2015, which is a good thing for Palmer. We all remember his famous sideline dance against the Seahawks, and that's all we want to see from Stanton again this season. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.

Player News
  • Stanton will be the Cardinals' No. 2 quarterback, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. No. 3 quarterback Matt Barkley had a nice showing in Sunday's preseason game against the Texans, but his roster fate will ultimately still depend on whether the Cardinals are willing keep three quarterbacks. Stanton is locked in as Carson Palmer's top backup.

  • Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Re-signs with Cardinals
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Cardinals and Stanton agreed to terms of a two-year contract Tuesday, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports. Rather than test the open market, the unrestricted free agent will remain in Arizona to serve as Carson Palmer's backup. While he took snaps in seven games last season, Stanton went 5-3 in Palmer's stead in 2014, completing 132 of 240 passes for 1,711 yards, seven touchdowns, and five interceptions. While the production is underwhelming, he appears to be choosing comfort in head coach Bruce Arians' system rather than diving into a new playbook in his age-32 season.

  • Stanton was 8-for-18 passing for a season-high 84 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. Because Carson Palmer remained upright this season, Stanton was barely utilized, throwing a combined seven passes and recording numerous kneel downs in six outings prior to the season finale. However, Stanton made a surprise appearance on the Cardinals' first drive after halftime, and head coach Bruce Arians revealed that an exchange of Palmer for Stanton was the plan all along in a postgame press conference. This matchup with the Seahawks didn't include numerous fist pumps and a rockette-esque kick from Stanton, as the Cardinals' offense sputtered to a measly 110 yards, two punts, and a pair of picks with the nine-year veteran under center. After two weeks to prepare for a divisional round contest, Palmer will usurp Stanton when the Cardinals next take the field on Jan. 16.

  • Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Makes an appearance Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stanton completed his sole pass for six yards and recorded three carries for minus-three yards in Sunday's win at St. Louis. When Stanton records such a line, Carson Palmer has directed a convincing victory while avoiding injury, which has so far occurred three times this season. No matter how often Stanton appears, all is well in the Arizona desert as long as his cameos are brief.
