TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -The injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals signed free-agent quarterback Tim Hasselbeck on Tuesday.
Hasselbeck's signing came two days after starter Kurt Warner hurt his elbow in a 25-10 loss to Carolina. Warner had replaced Matt Leinart, who was lost for the season with a broken collarbone one week earlier.
Hasselbeck will back up Tim Rattay, who starts Sunday at Washington. The Cardinals have not said when they expect Warner to return.
The club released defensive end Quentin Moses to make room for Hasselbeck on the roster.
The 6-foot-1, 214-pound Hasselbeck had been working in radio and television since his release by the New York Giants on Sept. 1. He appeared in two games for the Giants in 2005, but didn't attempt a pass.
Hasselbeck, the younger brother of Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, appeared in seven games for Washington in 2003, starting five times. He completed 95 of 177 passes (53.7 percent) for 1,012 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions.
