Just six days after they reportedly worked him out, the Arizona Cardinals have apparently decided to bring Blaine Gabbert on board.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that the Cardinals have signed the sixth-year NFL quarterback to a one-year deal. Gabbert has spent the last three seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, where he started 13 games. He was benched in favor of QB Colin Kaepernick five games into the 2016 season.
Gabbert was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He has thrown 38 touchdowns and 37 interceptions in his pro career, and he's rushed for three rushing touchdowns, all of which came during his last two seasons.
Gabbert completed 18 of 31 passes for 162 yards, one touchdown and an interception in a Thursday night matchup against the visiting Cardinals on Oct. 6. He also rushed for 70 yards and a TD.
The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Gabbert has a career 9-31 record as a starting QB in the NFL. The Cardinals reportedly attended a workout with Gabbert on Thursday, leading to speculation that the team would soon add him to their roster.
