  • Cardinals' Matt Barkley: Signs with Cardinals
    By RotoWire Staff

    Barkley has signed with the Cardinals. Barkley gives the Cardinals some added QB depth, with Carson Palmer (arm) on IR and current starter Drew Stanton dealing with a knee sprain. In any case, he's also behind Blaine Gabbert on the team's depth chart, so game action is not imminent for Barkley in his return to the team.

  • Matt Barkley: Expected to sign with Arizona
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Cardinals are expected to finalize a contract with Barkley ahead of the team's Week 11 game against the Texans, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports. Making his second start in place of Carson Palmer (arm) during Thursday's loss to the Seahawks, Drew Stanton was unable to escape the contest unscathed, with the veteran quarterback diagnosed with a sprained knee following the game. According to Mortensen, the Cardinals are fearful that Stanton could miss at least the Week 11 game with the injury, so Barkley will be brought in to provide additional depth. If Stanton is in fact ruled out for Week 11, Blaine Gabbert would likely start the contest while Barkley would act as the team's backup.

  • Matt Barkley: Works out for Patriots
    By RotoWire Staff

    Barkley was reportedly one of three QBs who worked out for the Patriots on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. It remains to be seen if the Patriots add a quarterback in short order, or if the team is simply compiling a list of potential options to turn to should the team either choose to carry a third signal caller or be forced to sign one down the road in the event of injury.

  • 49ers' Matt Barkley: Sliding to No. 3 QB
    By RotoWire Staff

    Barkley will be the third-string quarterback in Saturday's preseason matchup with the Broncos, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports. Barkley had been the No. 2 option behind starting quarterback Brian Hoyer, but C.J. Beathard has ousted him for the primary backup role, at least for one game. The shift doesn't set anything in stone, but it's not a great sign for Barkley's chances at the backup position on the final roster.

  • 49ers' Matt Barkley: Competing for backup role
    By RotoWire Staff

    Barkley will compete with rookie C.J. Beathard for the primary backup quarterback role this preseason, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Initially, it seemed that No. 2 duties were on lock for Barkley, but Beathard's rapid progression has allowed a competition to emerge. The 26-year-old still figures to have an edge on the backup gig due to his prior NFL experience, but with a new coaching regime in town, the playing field may be more even than expected. Considering starter Brian Hoyer's lengthy injury history, whoever comes out of camp as the 49ers' primary backup will have a decent shot as seeing the field at some point this season.
