The young quarterback drew interest from multiple NFL teams after his departure from the Minnesota Vikings and he has now landed with the Arizona Cardinals.
One of the biggest surprises from Saturday’s roster cuts by the Minnesota Vikings was their decision to let go of quarterback Kyle Sloter. Despite Sloter performing very well whenever he was given snaps during the preseason, the Vikings decided they were better off with only two quarterbacks on their roster this season.
Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for Sloter to find a new NFL team. On Sunday, it was revealed that the young signal-caller has reached a deal with the Arizona Cardinals to join the team’s practice squad according to the Pioneer Press’ Chris Tomasson.
Tomasson also mentioned that Sloter had more than a handful of teams interested in signing him following his departure from Minnesota on Saturday. The Cardinals clearly piqued the quarterback’s interest the most though and he decided to sign with them.
Prior to the news of Sloter signing with Arizona, it was being reported that he was going to workout for the Detroit Lions on Monday. Obviously, that will not be happening anymore, but he’s probably better off staying away from an organization like the Lions.
Sloter joins the Cardinals as the team’s third quarterback behind rookie Kyler Murray and Brett Hundley. Even though he will be starting the season on the team’s practice squad, the former Vikings signal-caller still has a good chance to eventually make his way to Arizona’s active roster this year.
Sloter’s time in Minnesota might not have turned out the way he would have liked, but at least he still has the opportunity to continue his career in the NFL thanks to the Cardinals.
