Ryan Lindley not worried about Brian Hoyer

Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley said he doesn't feel threatened by the teams acquisition of Brian Hoyer.

USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals signed quarterback Brian Hoyer last week but current starting quarterback Ryan Lindley said he didn't feel threatened by the move.

Lindley, who struggled in three starts for the Cardinals this season, said it's on him to go out and perform and acquiring another quarterback doesn't have an impact. Instead, Lindley said all he can do is go out and play his game and see what happens.

The Cardinals have started three different quarterbacks this season and some fans were already calling for Hoyer to start after Lindley struggled last week against the Lions. Lindley threw for just 104 yards against Detroit and has thrown six touchdowns without a touchdown pass this season.

Arizona signed Hoyer after placing former starting quarterback Kevin Kolb on injured reserve. Arizona played much of the season with just Lindley and John Skeleton active at quarterback. Regardless of who has started, Arizona has struggled to pass the ball this season. The Cardinals rank 29th in the league, averaging just 184.2 passing yards per game.
