As we very much suspected thanks to reporting done on Tuesday, the Arizona Cardinals have signed quarterback Brodie Croyle to replace Max Hall who was waived due to injury (shoulder). The Cardinals also signed punter Dave Zastudil and released tackle Jake Vermiglio.
Hall was unlikely to make the roster anyway, and now after suffering a shoulder dislocation in practice on Monday, it was a no-brainer to replace him on the roster with Croyle. John Skelton is still rehabbing an ankle sprain and is questionable for Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Even though starting QB Kevin Kolb is expected to play into the third quarter, the team needed a third active QB if Skelton can't go. Croyle is as good as any other option out there given his five seasons NFL experience with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Croyle will wear jersey no. 14 and Zastudil will wear no. 9.
