Arizona looks to add QB Brodie Croyle
Tuesday, August 23, 2011
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals are looking to sign former Kansas City quarterback Brodie Croyle after losing two of their backups to injuries.
General manager Rod Graves says Croyle was en route to Phoenix on Tuesday for a physical. Graves would not characterize the Cardinals as close to adding Croyle but said he was the only quarterback Arizona was bringing in after backups John Skelton and Max Hall were injured.
Skelton, the backup to starter Kevin Kolb, is in a protective boot after spraining an ankle in Friday night's loss at Green Bay. Hall partially dislocated his left shoulder in practice on Monday.
That left Kolb, who signed a five-year, $63 million contract, and Rich Bartell as the team's only quarterbacks.
