The Arizona Cardinals have made another offseason move, this time at backup quarterback.

According to Adam Schefter, the Cardinals have signed Colt McCoy to a one-year contract.

McCoy is a veteran quarterback that has been in the NFL for 10 seasons, he has played in 44 games and started 30 in his career.

He has become a solid veteran backup in the NFL and made a great career out of it.

In his career, McCoy has completed 60.7% of his passes for 6,455 yards, 30 touchdowns and 28 interceptions.

McCoy will be tasked with backing up Kyler Murray and keeping Kliff Kingsbury's offense running if need be.

For the Cardinals, they are now on their third attempt at finding a backup quarterback to play behind Murray.

Brett Hundley had what many thought a good season, but the Cardinals felt like something was missing so they went and got Chris Streveler.

Streveler was okay in his one game against the best defense in the NFL, but clearly the Cardinals want more.

What do you think of the Colt McCoy signing for the Arizona Cardinals?
