Quarterback Jeff Driskel, who was cut by the Detroit Lions, has also found a new team in the NFC East, signing with the Washington Commanders.

During his NFL career, Driskel has joined seven different NFL organisations.

Playing for both Florida and Louisiana Tech in college, Driskel’s football career got its start.

He was picked by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2016 NFL Draft, marking the start of his professional career.

Driskel has since played quarterback for a number of clubs, including the Lions, Houston Texans, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, and Cleveland Browns. He has also travelled extensively.

Due to an injury to starting quarterback Matthew Stafford during the 2019 NFL season, Driskel made his first start for the Lions.

Driskel, who started for Detroit against the Chicago Bears, completed 269 passing yards with one score and one interception.

Later, in a loss against the Dallas Cowboys, he passed for 209 yards and two touchdowns.

Driskel has a 1-11 record with 2,394 passing yards, 16 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in his NFL career as a starter.

Best of luck to Driskel

Despite having a lacklustre win-loss record overall, Jeff Driskel’s league experience makes him an invaluable member of the Commanders.

Driskel gives Washington a solid backup in case Jake Fromm or Marcus Mariota go hurt because of his understanding of the nuances of the game.

Throughout his career, he has shown professionalism, and we wish him well in his next role with the Commanders.
