Arizona Cardinals 2020: Projecting the 53
By Scott Allen
The Cardinals have three quarterbacks currently on the roster. The will likely keep just two but chances are they will keep a third on the practice squad.
It is only prudent they keep three in case of emergency. Now if a prominent backup were to make their way to the waive wire, then things may change when it comes to this position for the Cardinals.
Starter: Kyler Murray
Backup: Brett Hundley
Practice Squad: Chris Streveler
It’s pretty simple here. It’s Murray’s team but as we found out at the end of last season how important having a competent backup is.
Hundley came in an spelled Murray when he pulled a hamstring against the Seattle Seahawks on the road. Streveler is a guy that has managed to stick around and knows the playbook obviously. Sounds like a good option for the practice squad.
Murray comes into his sophomore season with a lot of eyes on him, maybe more than last season. The defending Offensive Rookie of the Year will have to show his continued growth.
