Sam Bradford set to sign for Arizona Cardinals


Quarterback Sam Bradford is set to sign for Arizona Cardinals in the free-agency signing period, according to reports.

The Cardinals have turned their attention to Bradford in this year’s free-agency after losing out on Kirk Cousins, who plans to sign a three-year $84m deal with the Minnesota Vikings.

It is understood Bradford, who played only two games for the Minnesota Vikings last year as he struggled with a knee injury, will earn $20m for the 2018 season, with an option for another $20m in 2019.

The 30-year-old has 101 touchdown passes and 57 interceptions during his career where he spent time at Philadelphia, Minnesota and St. Louis.

The Cardinals had also been linked with Josh McCown, who played for the New York Jets, and former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
