The Cardinals have their starting quarterback, Sam Bradford, and his backup, Mike Glennon. They’re expected to draft another signal-caller.

With the exception of former Cardinal Carson Palmer, who retired after the 2017 season, the remaining quarterbacks from last year’s team are searching for new homes.

According to ESPN’s Field Yates, free agent backup Drew Stanton visited with the Cleveland Browns.

Meanwhile, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that fellow Cardinals free agent Blaine Gabbert had visited with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday.

Stanton, 34, spent the past four years in Arizona playing behind Palmer and last year threw for 894 yards while completing 49.7 percent of his passes. He threw six touchdowns to five interceptions.

A Nov. 9 game against the Seattle Seahawks saw him injure his knee, leaving the starting spot open for Blaine Gabbert to quarterback the next five games. Stanton returned for the final two games of the regular season.

Cleveland is searching for quarterback depth after trading second-year pro DeShone Kizer this offseason and acquiring veteran Tyrod Taylor. The team only has third-year pros Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan behind Taylor, who has already been named the Browns’ starter.
