The Arizona Cardinals’ decision to release Colt McCoy on Monday shocked the football world.

The Cardinals were without their starting quarterback for at least the first four games of the season when the decision was made, according to reports that Kyler Murray will remain on the PUP list.

In the team’s season opener at FedEx Field against the Washington Commanders, McCoy and rookie fifth-round pick Clayton Tune were considered the favorites. McCoy was mostly in the starting lineup for both the preseason games and training camp.

McCoy reportedly struggled during the team’s joint practices with the Minnesota Vikings despite only having 12 throw attempts in the preseason.

Josh Dobbs, who was recently acquired, will now face off against Tune for the starting spot. Despite Cardinals head coach Gannon’s assertion that they wouldn’t name a starter because they had a “competitive advantage,” it appears they already have a candidate in mind.

“I believe we have a strategy in place, but I still want to watch them both play football. We have some work this week and more the following week, but I feel good about where we are right now.

On September 10, the Cardinals play the Washington Redskins.

Colt McCoy: Who is he?

American football quarterback Colt McCoy is renowned for his accomplishments in college and time spent playing in the National Football League (NFL). McCoy, who was born in Hobbs, New Mexico, on September 5, 1986, rose to fame while attending the University of Texas at Austin.

McCoy achieved a lot at Texas and was praised for his outstanding quarterbacking. He rose to become one of the best quarterbacks in college football and was renowned for his precision, judgment, and leadership on the field. He was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2008 and led his team to the 2009 national championship game.

McCoy was chosen by the Cleveland Browns in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft to play in the NFL. Before moving on to other teams like the San Francisco 49ers, Washington Football Team, and New York Giants, he played for the Browns from 2010 to 2013. Despite the obstacles in his professional career, including injuries, McCoy’s commitment and work ethic earned him respect in the league.
