The Cardinals continue to get hampered by the Kyler Murray injury, though losing just one game in his absence. Murray missed his third consecutive game of the season on Sunday during the 23-13 win over the Seattle Seahawks. During his absence, Colt McCoy has been holding on to the reins of the QB spot.

Arizona Cardinals signing Trace McSorley

McCoy during his matchup against the Seahawks completed 35 of 44 passes for 328 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. McCoy completed 11 passes with rookie Rondale Moore, eight with tight end Zach Ertz for 88 yards and two touchdowns, and four with receiver A. J. Green for 78 yards.

On the contrary, McSorley, the sixth-round 2019 draft pick, threw just 10 passes during his time with the Ravens. Although during his time in Penn State, the QB recorded a total of 9,899 passing yards and 77 touchdown passes. He threw 342 yards and two touchdowns, taking Penn State to victory against Washington in the 2017 Fiesta Bowl.

McSorley has a message for the Baltimore Ravens

Trace McSorley was not a protected practice squad player, which implies that the Cardinals could sign him to their active roster. And so as he leaves for Arizona, the QB expresses his emotions to the Baltimore fans via a simple tweet.

“That being said I couldn’t be more excited for this new opportunity with the @AZCardinals.” McSorley follows up his tweet. “Ready to get to work and keep this train moving forward. LETS GO!! #RedSea”
