Nerdy Football Analysis: Johnson lacked explosiveness in camp and was plagued by fumbling issues during pre-season games. Kerwynn Williams, Andre Ellington and Elijaah Penny are next up on the depth chart behind do-everything David Johnson.

Carson Palmer has new backup

In case of emergency, Blaine Gabbert.

That’s who the Cardinals will be able to turn to — if something unfortunate happens to Carson Palmer — after they sign the quarterback to a one-year deal, which they intend to do on Thursday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation. (NFL.com)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Drew Stanton is still in Arizona but will have competition as Carson Palmer’s backup. Gabbert threw 5 TDs and 6 INTs in six games last season for San Francisco with a 57 competition percentage.
