Sam Bradford intends to sign with Arizona Cardinals according to reports

Sam Bradford intends to sign with Arizona Cardinals according to reports

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Bradford didn't come cheap and will make $20 million for the 2018 season with an option for another $20 million in 2019.

The Arizona Cardinals have a new quarterback, but he's not likely to be their quarterback of the future.

The cap number for Bradford isn't known yet, as the signing bonus has not yet been reported. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because contracts can not be made public until Wednesday.

1 overall pick with the Rams, will be joining his fourth team, having been traded from St. Louis to Philadelphia, then traded again from Philly to Minnesota.

Among those teams is the Arizona Cardinals, who were one of the few franchises that were reportedly pursuing Cousins before he chose to join the Vikings.

There had been no QBs on the Arizona roster since the retirement of Carson Palmer and the departure of free agents Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert.

In his eight-year career, Bradford has thrown for 19,049 yards, 101 touchdowns and 57 interceptions. He led the league by completing 71.6-percent of his passes.

It remains be seen how hard the Vikings will look to retain Johnson, who made $2.35 million last season.

The Cardinals, due to their salary cap limitations, were always a longshot to land Kirk Cousins.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (8) hands the ball off to running back Dalvin Cook (33) in the second quarter against the New Orleans Saints at U.S. Bank Stadium.

For Arizona, it was nearly any quarterback.

The injury was to the same knee that the 30-year-old had twice torn his ACL.

By going with Bradford, the Cardinals are making a less expensive though definitely more risky route.

The biggest potential issue from our vantage point - Bradford's ghastly injury track record notwithstanding - is the state of the Arizona Cardinals offensive line. But they know they'd better have a pretty good backup, too.
