Drew Stanton believes that he can solve the Arizona Cardinals' problems at the quarterback position after signing a three-year contract with the side.

Drew Stanton has reached an agreement with the Arizona Cardinals, signing a three-year contract worth $8.2m (£5.4m).

The quarterback, who has previously been a backup player for the Detroit Lions and Indianapolis Colts, will have the chance to compete to be in the starting lineup.

The 28-year-old told reporters: "They need to find an answer at this position. I want to be that answer.

"I'm going to do everything in my power to be that answer, and given that opportunity, I feel like I can."

The move sees Stanton reunited with former Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who is now the head coach at the Cardinals.
