NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon reported Tuesday that free-agent quarterback Sam Bradford will sign with Arizona.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport cited the deal as a one-year pact worth $20 million with a second-year option for an additional $20 million, per a source.
Bradford might not be seen as the starry, free-agent equal of Cousins, but he's a sneaky high-potential, short-term signing for the Cardinals. His health and durability remain a raging question mark, but Bradford has strung together positive outings over the past few seasons. He was ranked No. 12 on NFL.com's Top 101 Free Agents of 2018.
The 30-year-old Bradford started just two games in 2017, authoring a pristine performance in a 29-19 win over the Saints in Week 1. The former first-overall pick was then lost to a lingering knee issue that ultimately paved the way for Case Keenum. His only other action came during a Week 5 win over the Bears.
It's worth noting that Vikings coach Mike Zimmer recently called Bradford's knee issue a "degenerative" condition.
It's worth noting the Cardinals also have the No. 15 overall pick in the draft. Blackmon mentioned that "best player available" could be in play with that selection for a team that must also focus on rebuilding their offensive line.
Bradford can operate at a high level -- he's proven that -- but few veterans come with a hazier outlook in terms of staying upright.
