Drew Stanton Heading To Cleveland
There was a chance that some team in the NFL would have had a 1-2 Spartan punch at quarterback this season, but after Drew Stanton signed with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, that possibility vanished.
Stanton, 33, signed a two-year deal with the Browns presumably to backup the newly acquired Tyrod Taylor. The Browns also own two of the first four picks in the NFL draft where it is highly possible they draft a quarterback of the future type.
Stanton started four games last season for the Cardinals, with a completion percentage under 50%. He threw six touchdowns to five interceptions while going 3-1 as a starter with Arizona in 2017.
After Kirk Cousins signed in Minnesota and not Arizona (where Stanton was a backup previously) there was a thought that Stanton could have gone to Minnesota as a backup to make the rare Michigan State one and two on the QB depth chart. Now even though both men find themselves back in the Midwest, they are on separate teams for 2018.
