Former Vikings and Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford is heading back to the division he broke in with. Bradford was the third domino in a wild market for veteran signal callers that opened this week. The contract also reportedly includes a one-year option for $20 million. Both the Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings would have entered the free-agent period on Wednesday at 4:00 pm ET without a quarterback under contract that had made an National Football League start. And CBSSports.com reported that Teddy Bridgewater will sign with the New York Jets. His 2017 season was short-lived, however, after a knee injury cost him all but two games in the regular season. His 101.1 quarterback with Minnesota was the best mark of the four teams he has played with. When he has played, however, he has played well, with the former No. 1 overall pick completing more than 71 percent of his passes with 23 touchdowns and only five interceptions in 17 games played with Minnesota. Similar to other clubs that made moves for veteran passers but are hardly set, like the Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos, the Cardinals will be addressing the position early in next month's draft. They have pick No. 15 in the first round.
He has a history of injuries, but stayed healthy in 2015 and 2016. He even missed the entire 2014 season with an ACL injury.
