On Thursday, the Browns traded journeyman and backup quarterback Josh Dobbs and a 2024 seventh-round draft choice to the Arizona Cardinals for a 2024 fifth-round pick. The move means that rookie and UCLA product Dorian Thompson-Robinson is unquestionably the second-stringer now.
According to a report from Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the Cardinals unexpectedly called the Browns and made the trade offer for Dobbs. Cleveland was “surprised” by the offer that came out of the blue, but they were happy to agree to the trade.
It’s unclear when Arizona’s starting quarterback, Kyler Murray, will return to action as he continues to recover from a torn ACL he suffered last December. For now, journeyman Colt McCoy will serve as Arizona’s starting quarterback.
Dobbs was on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster from 2017 to 2019 before he was traded early in the latter campaign to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Dobbs returned to Pittsburgh in 2020 and stayed there for two seasons before joining the Browns last year.
He was briefly on the Detroit Lions’ roster as well in 2022 before joining the Tennessee Titans. Dobbs was the starter for the team’s Week 18 win-or-go-home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars last season, which Tennessee lost.
In eight career game appearances, Dobbs has 456 passing yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.
