New Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians may have a familiar face joining him in the desert.

According to, Indianapolis Colts backup quarterback Drew Stanton could be headed to Arizona.

Arians was impressed with how Stanton performed in preseason and practiced all season with the Colts, and he needs a quarterback.

Stanton should garner interest by teams as a backup this offseason but his familiarity with Arians and offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin could make the Cardinals a frontrunner.

The 28-year-old signal caller could also compete for the starting job in Arizona, which could make the Cardinals an attractive option.

Previously, Stanton spent four season backing up Matthew Stafford in Detroit.

For his career, Stanton has thrown five touchdowns and nine interceptions. He has started four games and has posted a 2-2 record.
