Another former Minnesota Vikings quarterback is on the move with his eyes on a starting role.
Sam Bradford plans to sign a one-year, $20 million deal with the Arizona Cardinals when free agency opens on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. The deal includes $15 million guaranteed and a one-year option for $20 million, per Schefter.
Bradford began the year as the Vikings' starter but played in just two games due to a knee ailment. Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero that Bradford's issue was "degenerative."
First-year Cardinals coach Steve Wilks is starting with a blank slate at quarterback, as last year's starter Carson Palmer retired and none of the backups are under contract.
Bradford's former teammate Case Keenum is expected to sign with the Denver Broncos, while Minnesota is looking to reel in Kirk Cousins.
