Sam Bradford to sign with Arizona

Sam Bradford to sign with Arizona

A person with knowledge of the situation said Sam Bradford and the Cardinals have agreed to a one-year, $20 million contract with a second-year option, also for $20 million.

The Vikings could approach running back Latavius Murray, on the books to make a base salary of $5.15 million in 2018, and ask him to restructure his contract or be cut.

Bradford has had a very interesting National Football League career for a top-pick quarterback that is far from a bust, but can't quite stick with one situation. He has spent the last two seasons with Minnesota but only played two games in the 2017 season after becoming injured. He completed 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns, and no picks against the Saints in Week 1 before that knee injury derailed his season.

After a decent season in Philly, the Vikings acquired him for a first round pick following the devastating injury to Bridgewater.

Bradford has appeared in 80 games - all as a starter - for the St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia and Minnesota. He threw 23 touchdown passes to five interceptions and averaged 7.2 yards per attempt in 17 starts.

Bradford has been solid for the Vikings when he's been healthy enough to play. On March 10, 2015, he was traded from the Rams to the Eagles. It was an up-and-down season for Bradford.

After starting a combined 28 games for Minnesota in his first two seasons and completing almost 65 percent of his passes, Bridgewater missed the entire 2016 season due to a non-contact injury in his left leg suffered in late August of that year. He missed half of the 2013 season and all of 2014 after tearing his ACL in back-to-back years.

Arizona was also able to keep Larry Fitzgerald on the team, he lead the team in receptions (109) yards (1156) and touchdowns (6), he was the only receiver to top 100 receptions and 1000 yards, for the Cardinals.
