The Cleveland Browns have made a swift move by trading quarterback Josh Dobbs to the Arizona Cardinals. This trade occurred shortly after designating him as the backup quarterback for the upcoming 2023 season.

According to NFL source Tom Pelissero, the Browns have traded Dobbs to the Cardinals in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the same draft from Cleveland and a seventh-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft going to Arizona.

This trade decision coincides with the Arizona Cardinals’ ongoing uncertainty regarding their Week 1 starting quarterback for the 2023 season. This concern is related to how NFL quarterback Kyler Murray is recovering from a knee injury he suffered last year.

The Cardinals now have a huge pool of quarterbacks contending for the starting position in Week 1, when they take on the Washington Commanders, thanks to the signing of Josh Dobbs, who adds the numbers to about half a dozen.

Josh Dobbs’ departure from the Cleveland Browns has resulted in the promotion of their highly-regarded rookie, Dorian Thompson-Robinson, who will now serve as the backup quarterback for the 2023 campaign. However, the Browns have chosen not to cut third-year quarterback Kellen Mond in a related move.

Robert Joshua Dobbs was born on January 26, 1995. He is an American football quarterback and will be playing for the Arizona Cardinals in the National Football League (NFL) this coming season. He began his football journey at the collegiate level, representing Tennessee, and later entered the NFL when he was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
