Quarterback Jim McMahon, changing teams for the fourth time in his career, signed Thursday with the Arizona Cardinals.
The team also waived defensive backs John Booty and Chuck Cecil and signed cornerback Lorenzo Lynch, an unrestricted free agent.McMahon, who said after Tuesday's tryout he knew he'd be coming aboard as a backup for Steve Beuerlein, brings an irrepressible spirit to the Cardinals as well as experience gained through eight playoffs and 12 seasons with other teams.
He quarterbacked Chicago to victory in the 1986 Super Bowl and has a 67-28 career record as a starter. McMahon, 35, spent his first seven seasons with Chicago. He then had one at San Diego and three in Philadelphia before playing last year with Minnesota.
Terms of his contract weren't disclosed.
After the NFL's free agent deadline passed Wednesday, players became free if their teams failed to tender them qualifying offers - a one-year offer at a required 110 percent of the veteran's 1993 compensation.
