ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that former New York Giants quarterback Colt McCoy has signed a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals.

The 10-year veteran started two games for the Giants last season, throwing 40 passes for 375 yards and 1 touchdown in his four total appearances. In his career, which includes stops in Cleveland, San Francisco and Washington, McCoy has thrown for 6,455 yards and 30 touchdowns.

McCoy saw playing time last season due to an injury to starting quarterback Daniel Jones, leading the team to victory in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks, completing 13 passes for 105 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. His final start of the season was a Week 16 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

He will likely serve as the backup to Kyler Murray, who ranked 13th last season in passing yards, throwing for 3,971 yards and 26 touchdowns. His 67.2% completion rate ranked 11th in the league.

The Cardinals, who posted an 8-8 record last season, missed the playoffs for the fifth straight year. They are +4000 to win Super Bowl LVI on FanDuel Sportsbook.
