Cardinals Sign Trace McSorley To Active Roster

Trace McSorley is back on a 53-man roster, folks.

The former Penn State football star was promoted to the Arizona Cardinals’ active roster on Wednesday after the team placed backup quarterback Colt McCoy on injured reserve.

McSorley signed with the Cardinals last November after spending time on the Ravens’ practice squad to start the season. The Virginia native started all three games for the Cardinals this preseason and totaled two touchdowns and 536 passing yards.

The Cardinals waived McSorley last week ahead of the NFL’s deadline for all 32 teams to cut their rosters down to 53 players. McSorley stuck with Arizona on its practice squad, though. He’ll now presumably be Kyler Murray’s backup for the foreseeable furture.

The Ravens drafted McSorley in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The signal-caller spent his fair share of time on Baltimore’s active roster, and he even appeared in a regular season game against the Steelers in 2020 and scored a touchdown.

Before his NFL career, McSorley established himself as a legend in Happy Valley. He totaled 1,697 rushing yards, 107 total touchdowns, and a program-record 9,899 passing yards during his Penn State career.
