Sam Bradford to sign with Arizona

Free agent quarterback Sam Bradford intends to sign a one-year, $20 million deal with the Arizona Cardinals, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Cardinals don't have any other quarterbacks under contract.

Sam Bradford, doing what he does best: Playing catch on the sidelines.

Before going to the Vikings, Bradford played one season with the Chip Kelly-led Philadelphia Eagles.

Bradford joins Case Keenum on the road out of Minnesota.

The Heisman Trophy victor was drafted by St. Louis with the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Colvin, an Owasso native named the 2013 Thorpe Award semifinalist and a two-time All-Big 12 selection, has spent the past four seasons in Jacksonville. The move makes Bradford the odd-on favorite to succeed Carson Palmer as the Cardinals' starting signal-caller.

Logan wasn't just a washout.

Limited to two games in 2017 because of a knee injury, Bradford became a free agent after his second season with the Minnesota Vikings.

Arizona has a first-year coach in place in Steve Wilks and needs to fill out the quarterback depth chart. He was part of a trade between the St. Lois Rams and Eagles where they basically swapped quarterbacks. His 71.6% completion percentage set a new National Football League single season record.

However, when Bradford is healthy, he's a serviceable starter.

He went 7-8. His remaining career record is 27-37-1. Expect the Cardinals to land a couple more, maybe another veteran and a draft pick. Bradford will enjoy throwing to Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson, but the 30-year-old's troublesome left knee may not hold up for long behind a porous offensive line.

For me, that's too many maybes.

Bradford, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, is known for his strong and accurate arm but he has struggled with injuries.

Alex Marvez can be heard from 7 11 p.m. ET Wednesday and Thursday on SiriusXM NFL Radio.
