Cardinals released QB Richard Bartel with an injury settlement.
Bartel was placed on injured reserve after suffering a shoulder injury in Thursday's preseason finale, but will now be free to sign with any club once he's healthy. A journeyman veteran, it bodes extremely poorly for Bartel's future that he's getting cut loose from a team with the league's worst quarterback situation. Mon, Sep 3, 2012 01:12:00 PM

Cardinals placed QB Richard Bartel (shoulder) and RB Javarris James (torn ACL) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

Bartel went down in Thursday's preseason finale, and almost certainly would have been released if not for his injury. A restricted free agent in the offseason, Bartel will likely be non-tendered.

Richard Bartel injured his right shoulder during Thursday's preseason finale.

The injury ends any shot Bartel had at sticking on the final roster. Developmental sixth-round rookie Ryan Lindley is going to be the third quarterback behind John Skelton and Kevin Kolb.
Fri, Aug 31, 2012 08:10:00 AM

Cardinals offered contracts to QB Rich Bartel, RB Alfonso Smith, DE Ronald Talley and LB Brandon Williams.

All are ''exclusive rights'' free agents and expected to sign. Bartel appeared in two games last season in relief of John Skelton. Smith, undrafted in 2006, spent time between the Cardinals' active roster and practice squad. Talley and Williams provide organizational depth.

In relief of an inept John Skelton, Richard Bartel completed 8-of-16 passes for 64 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Bartel showed impressive arm strength, somehow getting a 23-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald through two defenders. He also looked comfortable in the pocket, checking down to Early Doucet well. However, the 49ers were in all-out prevent mode by the time Bartel got in the game. It's unclear if he or Skelton will start if Kevin Kolb (toe) can't get back for Week 12.

Richard Bartel completed 12-of-16 passes for 216 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception against the Broncos in the preseason finale.

He can sling it. Bartel finished the preseason an eye-popping 37-of-54 (68.5 percent) for 530 yards (9.8 YPA) and a 5-2 TD-to-INT ratio for a passer rating near 110.0. He's earned the No. 2 job over John Skelton, who has been sidelined with an ankle injury.

The Arizona Republic considers Richard Bartel a strong contender for the Cardinals' No. 3 QB job this summer.

The Cardinals are expected to trade for a starter, use John Skelton as the No. 2 QB, and stage a battle between Bartel and Max Hall for the third spot. In addition to good size and a strong arm, Bartel displayed plenty of confidence and downfield aggressiveness in a Week 17 appearance. He could end up sending Hall to the practice squad.
Tue, Jun 7, 2011 07:12:00 PM

Coming on in relief of John Skelton, Richard Bartel completed 16-of-28 passes for 150 yards in a Week 17 loss to the 49ers.

Larry Fitzgerald owners wish they had Bartel throwing in Week 16. Bartel amazingly compiled those numbers in a shade more than one quarter of action. He came out firing down field, targeting Fitzgerald on his first three throws while showing no hesitation whatsoever. Bartel put enough on tape to merit a look as a third-stringer in 2011, but he'll have to fight for a roster spot in training camp.
Sun, Jan 2, 2011 08:20:00 PM

Cardinals signed QB Richard Bartel, as expected.

Bartel, who backed up Daunte Culpepper for Sacramento in the UFL this year, worked out a few weeks ago for the Cardinals. Though he's never played in an NFL game, he's seen time with the Cowboys, Browns, Jaguars and Redskins. He'll be a third-stringer in Arizona.
Tue, Dec 7, 2010 01:42:00 PM

The Cardinals will reportedly sign free agent QB Richard Bartel to their active roster this week.

Max Hall is a candidate for I.R. after dislocating his left shoulder in Sunday's loss to St. Louis. Bartel, 27, is a practice-squad type journeyman. He'll be No. 3 on the depth chart behind John Skelton and Derek Anderson.
Mon, Dec 6, 2010 11:37:00 AM

Redskins waived QB Richard Bartel.

Bartel lost out to John Beck, who signed an extension with the Redskins on Wednesday, for the No. 3 job. Bartel has a big arm but lacks accuracy and decision-making skills.
Sat, Sep 4, 2010 04:28:00 PM

Redskins signed QB Richard Bartel off the Jaguars practice squad.

Andre Woodson can pack his bags once again as he's off the practice squad. Bartel and his big arm will be the No. 3 quarterback behind Jason Campbell and Todd Collins. We're hoping that the Redskins don't think this is a long-term answer to their quarterback woes.
Wed, Nov 25, 2009 10:37:00 AM

Jaguars signed QB Richard Bartel to their practice squad.

The strong-armed Tarleton State product has spent time on both the Cowboys' and the Browns' practice squads. He's essentially the No. 3 quarterback in Jacksonville.
Mon, Sep 7, 2009 12:22:00 PM

Browns waived QB Richard Bartel.

The former Cowboys practice squad quarterback has a big arm but went to Tarleton State. That's all you need to know.
Sat, Sep 5, 2009 10:41:00 PM

Browns promoted QB Richard Bartel from their practice squad.

Big armed but considered to have shaky accuracy, Bartel will close out Week 17 as Bruce Gradkowski's backup and enter the offseason with little chance of making the 2009 club barring an outstanding showing in spring and summer work.
