It goes without saying that the Cleveland Browns have failed miserably in their search for a new franchise quarterback for over two decades. They now suddenly find themselves poised to have a surplus of talent under center.

The Browns kickstarted the movement with the acquisition of former Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor. According to ESPN’s Field Yates, they have now also signed former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton to a two-year deal:

The signing of Stanton likely rounds up their depth under center. Aside from Taylor and Stanton, the Browns are also expected to take a quarterback with either the first or fourth overall picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Taylor will undoubtedly serve as the starter after establishing himself as such during a solid stint with the Bills. That means Stanton will likely serve as the emergency backup while the Browns work on developing whichever player they choose to roll with.

Stanton was originally taken in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. Following a brief hiatus between multiple teams that resulted in him not seeing any action, he signed a three-year deal with Arizona prior to the 2014 NFL season. Since then, Stanton has done a solid job as a backup behind former Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer.

He filled in for Palmer during Week 7 of the 2017 NFL season after the latter was forced to miss the rest of the season with a broken arm. Stanton went 3-1 as a starter before he was replaced by quarterback Blaine Gabbert after suffering an injury of his own.
