Cleveland With Three QBs, Suitor for Shock?

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - As the Spokane Shock have seen in the last few weeks, the quarterback position is the key to having a successful season. While the Shock play musical chairs at quarterback with Rashaad Carter and Donovan Porterie, the Cleveland Gladiators have too many options to run their offense.

Former Shock quarterback Brian Zbydniewsky is back with the Gladiators after being activated on Monday from a league suspension. Zbydniewsky’s joins  Shane Austin and Chris Dieker to give Cleveland three quarterback options. Depth at quarterback isn’t bad problem to have, but there’s only playing time for one. That depth could make the Gladiators an ideal trading partner for the Spokane Shock.

Zbydniewsky was a rookie for the Shock in 2010 when Spokane won the Arena Bowl. In 2013, he played nine game for Cleveland and threw for 2,001 yards and 34 touchdowns. A move for Zbydniewsky makes sense, but at this point any of the Cleveland options could be an improvement for Spokane. The only question is what would Spokane have to give up to make a deal?

Time is not on the side of the Shock though, Spokane hosts San Jose Friday night. The game will be broadcast live on SWX as Spokane looks to avoid a three game losing streak without quarterback Erik Meyer.
