National Football League free agency rumors: QB Sam Bradford to sign with Cardinals

Jimmy Kempski, a writer for the Philly Voice, tweeted that if Bradford collects the entire $20 million from year one of the contract, he'll have made $134.1 million in his career - but has won just 34 games, and never more than seven in a season.

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Bradford intends to sign with Arizona on a one-year, $20 million deal with $15 million guaranteed. Bradford looked exceptional in Week 1 a year ago for the Vikings, but dealt with a knee injury and was usurped by Case Keenum. He missed all of the 2014 season with a knee injury. It was to the same knee where the quarterback had twice torn his ACL, though tests this time revealed no structural damage.

Another former Minnesota Vikings quarterback is on the move with his eyes on a starting role. He was shut down for the 2017 last season after needing surgery to help fix a bone bruise in his knee.

He's played in all 16 games just twice in his career - in 2010, when he was an NFL All-Rookie Team selection, and again in 2012.

Trump's unlikely allies on trade: Democrats
Since taking office, no issue has pitted Trump against his allies in Congress more than the tariff dispute has. For good measure, he lectured Trump and his enablers: "Tariffs will not add thousands of American jobs".


Bradford, the first overall pick in the 2010 draft and one of the highest compensated players in National Football League history, likely is signing a short-term, incentive-laden deal after another knee injury limited him to two games with the Minnesota Vikings last 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. Backups Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert are also set to be free agents.

For his career, Bradford has started 80 games with the Vikings, Rams and Philadelphia Eagles.
