Arizona Cardinals Re-Sign Quarterback


The Arizona Cardinals have signed quarterback David Blough to a one-year contract for the 2023 NFL season, according to Darren Urban of the team's official site.

Blough played in the final two games of the 2022 season for the Cardinals as a result of injuries to starting quarterback Kyler Murray and backup Colt McCoy.

Blough had a mediocre performance during his two starts, throwing for 402 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions, but unfortunately, the team lost both games. He also suffered a concussion in the final game of the season and was unable to return.

Blough started his NFL career as an undrafted rookie with the Detroit Lions in 2019, where Cardinals assistant general manager Dave Sears was the Lions' director of college scouting.

With Blough's signing, the Cardinals now have three quarterbacks on their roster, including Blough, McCoy, and Trace McSorley. 

Murray's return to the field is uncertain as he recovers from surgery, and McCoy is expected to have limited participation in the offseason program due to a recent procedure.

It's possible that the team will bring in another quarterback before the offseason program begins next month, unless McCoy is able to participate fully.

Blough will have the opportunity to compete for playing time during the offseason program.
