Brodie Croyle Expected To Sign With Cardinals

We haven't heard a peep about the future prospects of former Kansas City Chiefs QB Brodie Croyle. He was a free agent entering this season so the Chiefs didn't re-sign him meaning he was available on the open market.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports that the Arizona Cardinals are expected to sign Croyle later today. The Cards have a couple of their quarterbacks hurt -- QB John Skelton and QB Max Hall -- so the move makes sense.

Somers makes a good point here about Croyle and the Cards offense:

Signing Croyle makes sense. He spent three years with the Chiefs, including two under Todd Haley, the former Cardinals offensive coordinator under Whisenhunt. The similarities in offense should make Croyle's learning curve less steep.

So Croyle gets another opportunity. He hasn't won a game in the NFL and the Cards just acquired QB Kevin Kolb so he's certainly not going to be the starting quarterback but he'll get his chance to stake his claim as a backup.

Assuming the Cardinals sign him, it'll be interesting to see if he plays on Saturday against the San Diego Chargers. That happens to be the team he played against when he last started a game and things didn't turn out so well.

Things didn't work out in KC but I hope Croyle does well for himself over in the NFC.
