Alek Torgersen isn’t the only new quarterback for the Cardinals.

The Cardinals claimed Torgersen off of waivers on Thursday and, per multiple reports, they also claimed Brandon Doughty. Doughty was waived by the Dolphins on Wednesday.

Doughty was a seventh-round pick in Miami in 2016 and spent most of the last two seasons on the practice squad. He was 39-of-69 for 448 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in preseason appearances during his time in Miami.

Doughty and Torgesen give the Cardinals a pair of arms to use in offseason work behind Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon. The chances that both stick around through OTAs and/or training camp will probably be decided by what happens during the draft.

  1. This is more like picking up garbage than doubling down on QBs. Are the Cardinals new uniforms reflective orange vests?

  2. They doubled down on QB’s to make sure that they’d land one of them and instead got both when no one claimed either. Both are just camp arms, at least one of them might not be on the roster after the draft.

  3. How many years have the Cardinals ignored the QB position? They should have drafted someone who had the potential to replaced Carson Palmer a few years ago. They didn’t. Now the Card are having to scramble to find QB’s to fill his shoes. I don’t mind signing a bunch of QB’s and weeding them out over the spring & summer. Do the Cards try to trade up and draft a QB? Should be interesting.

    Bradford, if healthy, and Glennon are ‘serviceable’ QB on an intern basis. I’ve watched Glennon at Tampa Bay and he is better than most people think. Not great, but he’s decent. Like Palmer, he not a big scrambler, but he can make the throws necessary. This is going to be a very telling, and interesting summer for Cardinal fans. I’m kind of excited to see where we go from here!

  4. Keim is hoping there is an undiscovered Brady or Farve slipping through the cracks out there. The truth actually is these are camp arms to guard against Bradford taking any hits, bumps, or bruises. Bubble-wrap anyone?
