The Arizona Cardinals have released veteran backup quarterback Colt McCoy and will keep starter Kyler Murray on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, team sources said Monday. Here’s what you need to know:
- By being on the PUP list, Murray will be out for at least the first four games of the 2023 regular season.
- As of now, the Cardinals’ options at starting quarterback are veteran Josh Dobbs, whom Arizona acquired last week in a trade with the Cleveland Browns, or rookie fifth-round pick Clayton Tune.
- McCoy, who turns 37 in September, started six games for Arizona in the past two seasons.
McCoy, the Browns’ 2010 third-round pick, has played 12 seasons in the NFL with five teams: Browns, Cardinals, Washington, 49ers, Giants. He’s thrown for 7,975 yards with 34 touchdowns and 32 interceptions in his career.
