  Saints | New Orleans works out several players    Mon Aug 29, 06:06 PM

Free-agent QB Ricky Stanzi (Lions), QB Charlie Whitehurst (Colts), TE Bear Pascoe (Patriots) and TE Jack Tabb (Saints) worked out for the New Orleans Saints Monday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Don't be too excited about your Garrett Grayson dynasty stock. The team has spent a lot of time looking at upgrading the position behind Drew Brees. Luke McCown is the primary backup behind Brees, and last year's third-round pick (Grayson) has not moved up the depth chart.

  Browns | Ricky Stanzi trying out    Sat May 14, 11:22 AM

Free-agent QB Ricky Stanzi (Lions) is participate in the Cleveland Browns' rookie minicamp this weekend on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Stanzi has a huge arm, but he can't throw it in the ocean standing on the beach. He's a camp arm if he's able to latch on.

  Lions | Sign Ricky Stanzi    Tue Sep 8, 02:05 PM

Free-agent QB Ricky Stanzi (Giants) was signed to the Detroit Lions' practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Footballguys view: The Lions won't be looking for a new quarterback as long as Matt Stafford stays healthy. Stafford has a decent match-up this week against the San Diego Chargers, but it wont be a cakewalk. We see him as a low-end QB1 this week or a rock solid QB2.

  Giants | Chris Boswell, Ricky Stanzi sign    Wed Jan 7, 05:39 PM

The New York Giants signed PK Chris Boswell (Texans) and QB Ricky Stanzi (Texans) to Reserve/Futures contracts Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: Stanzi has a big arm but little accuracy. He's bounced around the league, and he's not a player to monitor even if you're in a super super deep dynasty league.

  Texans | Sign Ricky Stanzi    Tue Dec 16, 04:14 PM

The Houston Texans signed free-agent QB Ricky Stanzi (Jaguars) to the practice squad Tuesday, Dec. 16, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Of course they did. If you have a rocket arm and little accuracy, then the Texans want you on the roster. They needed to make this move with both Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tom Savage banged up. Stanzi has a skill set similar to that of Savage, but he's going to run the scout team. The Texans are going to start either Case Keenum or Thad Lewis at quarterback in Week 16.

  Jaguars | Waive 14    Fri Aug 29, 05:10 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars waived C Mike Brewster, OG Drew Nowak, DE Gerald Rivers, QB Ricky Stanzi, WR Chad Bumphis, OT Cody Booth, DT DeAndre Coleman, DT Ricky Havili-Heimuli, S Craig Loston, QB Stephen Morris, P Kasey Redfern, OG Tyler Shatley, TE D.J. Tialavea and LB Marcus Whitfield Friday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Morris might be able to stick around on the practice squad. He's a good athlete with a strong arm. His mechanics are nearly flawless when the pocket is clean, but his game falls apart under pressure.

  Jaguars | Ricky Stanzi could be No. 2 QB    Wed Jun 25, 11:43 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Ricky Stanzi could be the No. 2 quarterback this upcoming season if the team decides to keep three quarterbacks on the final roster. Stanzi's spot on the final roster likely will depend on how QB Blake Bortles progresses during training camp.

Footballguys view: If Bortles can't beat Stanzi out, then there's a real problem. Stanzi has a rocket arm, but he can't throw it in the ocean standing on the beach. Accuracy (at any level) has always been a problem for him.

  Jaguars | Ricky Stanzi may not make roster    Sun Jun 15, 09:22 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Ricky Stanzi may not make the final roster if the team decides to keep only two quarterbacks this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Stanzi is all arm and no accuracy. It's not a surprise that he may not make the team. Any fantasy owners holding onto him in super, super deep dynasty leagues can feel safe moving on.

  Jaguars | Ricky Stanzi impressing coach    Fri May 30, 10:55 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Ricky Stanzi has surprised head coach Gus Bradley with his performance so far in practice. Stanzi is competing for a spot as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind Chad Henne and Blake Bortles.

Footballguys view: Stanzi has a rocket arm, but he's never had great accuracy. His game also falls apart when under pressure. We doubt he'll ever be much of a fantasy factor, so owners in super deep dynasty leagues should have already moved on.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have declared TE Allen Reisner, DL Brandon Deaderick, WR Cecil Shorts, SS Jonathan Cyprien, RB Maurice Jones-Drew, QB Ricky Stanzi, OG Will Rackley inactive for Week 15.

Footballguys view: Jordan Todman gets the start at running back, and he's a solid play against a fading Bills defense.

Footballguys view: Mike Brown is active, and he could get a decent number of targets with Joe Haden likely shadowing Cecil Shorts.

Footballguys view: Cecil Shorts is active, but he'll draw Patrick Peterson today, so that might put a cap on expectations for him unless the Jags get blown out and give him a lot of garbage time snaps.

  Jaguars | Ricky Stanzi will serve as backup    Thu Oct 17, 03:12 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Ricky Stanzi will serve as the backup for the teams Week 7 game. QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) is progressing, but is not ready yet.

Footballguys view: If Chad Henne goes down, Stanzi coming in is the very definition of "last ditch effort" or "hope and a prayer". Blackmon owners have to hope it doesn't come to that.

  Jaguars | Awarded two off waivers     Tue Aug 27, 05:31 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars were awarded QB Ricky Stanzi (Chiefs) and LB Kyle Knox (Seahawks) off waivers Thursday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: Stanzi has a strong arm but his accuracy is poor. He's going to give them another arm for the preseason finale behind QB3 Matt Scott.

  Chiefs | Fourteen players cut    Mon Aug 26, 02:42 AM

Kansas City Chiefs backup QB Ricky Stanzi and FB Braden Wilson were among 14 players cut by the team Sunday, Aug. 25. Wilson was the team's sixth-round draft pick just this year, while Stanzi had a following in Kansas City despite limited play. Also cut were WR Terrance Copper, DB Neiko Thorpe, CB's Vincent Agnew, Otha Foster III, and Kamaal McIlwain; OL Ryan Durand, A.J. Hawkins and Hutch Eckerson; DE's Miguel Chavis and Rob Lohr; RB Jordan Roberts; and WR Tyler Shoemaker.

Footballguys view: Stanzi lost out in his competition with Tyler Bray for the QB3 job in Kansas City. He's got a strong arm but his accuracy is poor. Some team may bring him in for a tryout if injuries strike at the QB position.

  Chiefs | Ricky Stanzi's future cloudy    Wed Jul 24, 08:09 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Ricky Stanzi is the only quarterback on the team's roster not acquired by new head coach Andy Reid and new general manager John Dorsey, and he finds himself fighting for a roster spot. QB Alex Smith is the unquestioned starter, and QB Chase Daniel is the top backup. That leaves Stanzi and QB Tyler Bray fighting for the No. 3 job. 'We're splitting reps. I'm just really worried about the reps I got. It's been nice to be out here a couple of days early just to refresh with the playbook and kind of get up to speed with the guys, especially with the receivers.'

Footballguys view: Stanzi has a strong arm but struggles with accuracy. Bray has a stronger arm but struggles with accuracy as well. We'll see if Bray can struggle less and thus stick around on the final roster or the practice squad.

  Chiefs | Ricky Stanzi may have edge in No. 3 QB race    Sun Jun 23, 11:17 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Ricky Stanzi may have an edge over QB Tyler Bray for the No. 3 quarterback job entering training camp because Stanzi is said to have head coach Andy Reid's offense down pat.

Footballguys view: Both Stanzi and Bray have rocket arms. However, they struggle to throw it in the ocean standing on the beach. Accuracy is a big problem for both QBs and we'll see them battle for the QB3 job behind Alex Smith and Chase Daniel.
