The Arizona Cardinals are heading to the bargain bin for their veteran quarterback once again, following a similar mold to their last addition of Carson Palmer, by signing Sam Bradford in free agency according to multiple reports.
The dominoes had been falling and then later Tuesday, it looked like the Cardinals put themselves in position for their short-term quarterback answer.
NFL Network and ESPN reported that Bradford will sign a one-year deal worth $20 million ($15 million guaranteed) with an option year at $20 million.
Another former Minnesota Vikings quarterback is on the move with his eyes on a starting role.
Bradford has played with three different organizations (St. Louis, Philadelphia, Minnesota) and has thrown 101 touchdowns and 57 interceptions during his eight-year National Football League career after starring at the University of Oklahoma. He initially was injured in Week 1, missed Weeks 2-4 and saw his comeback in Week 5 end before halftime when he re-aggravated the injury. Bradford looked exceptional in Week 1 past year for the Vikings, but dealt with a knee injury and was usurped by Case Keenum. He was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2010. While lighting up the New Orleans Saints in the season opener, Bradford sustained a non-contact left knee injury that would doom his season.
"I think it's been really encouraging for me, mentally, to know that I can go back out there and do it", Bradford said after returning to practice in January.
With NFL free agency set to open this week, Nathan Peterman is the only quarterback on the Bills' roster.
However, when Bradford is healthy, he's a serviceable starter. When he has played, however, he has played well, with the former No. 1 overall pick completing more than 71 percent of his passes with 23 touchdowns and only five interceptions in 17 games played with Minnesota.
