Chris Streveler should have seen his time was coming last week when the Cardinals attempted to sign Shane Buechele off the Chiefs’ practice squad. His time with the team ended Tuesday when it made official the signing of quarterback Trace McSorley off the Ravens’ practice squad.

Streveler played 22 snaps two weeks ago against the Panthers after Colt McCoy left with an injury. He completed 6 of 9 passes for 36 yards.

He played in Week 17 last season after Kyler Murray injured an ankle and went 11-of-16 for 105 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

McSorley appeared in three games with the Ravens after he entered the league with Baltimore as a sixth-round selection in 2019. He was on Baltimore’s active roster in both 2019 and 2020 and was on the Ravens’ practice squad this season.

The Ravens activated McSorley to the active roster Sunday against Chicago to serve as the backup to Tyler Huntley with Lamar Jackson out, but McSorley did not play.

  1. Man, this guy was AWFUL. No composure whatsoever, would try to run even without pressure. He is as bad as Ryan Lindley.

  2. Streveler is basically a gimmick QB. He is fine for a running package… but if pressed to play actual QB… he was terrible.

  3. That Chris Streveler signing by the Arizona Cardinals front office was always a bit of a head scratcher. There’s a reason this guy shot straight up to canada to the CFL after college

  4. I think Streveler has the potential to find success somewhere in a Taysom-type role. Don’t think he’s cut out to be a traditional backup.

  5. The most surprising thing about the 2021 season is that colt Mccoy is still around the nfl
