Sam Bradford to sign with Arizona

The 30-year-old Bradford is an eight-year pro who was selected by the Rams with the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

The mass exodus by the three quarterbacks is logical considering the Vikings are on the verge of signing Kirk Cousins to a three-year, $84 million contract.

Bradford hit free agency along with former teammates Teddy Bridgewater and Case Keenum. In the end they get Bradford for a reported $20 million in 2018 and an option year in 2019 for $15 million. Sadly, the only winning record in Bradford's career came in 2017, when he started just two games, with Minnesota winning both. Keenum has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Denver Broncos. That's not Bradford, no matter how well he recovers from his recent injury. Only twice in his eight National Football League seasons has he played all 16 games. He signed a five-year contract extension in 2016, with $21 million in guaranteed money.

Bradford isn't an elite option at the position-he's never thrown for more than 21 touchdowns in a season-but at the very least he's a steady short-term option. It wouldn't be a surprise to add another veteran. The Raiders could have a leg up on those two since Johnson, who plays the three-technique spot, could fit in well with their scheme. If you remember the last we saw of that line, it was frightening. Bradford had a quick stretch in Minnesota where he looked like a stellar player. But Bradford keeps persuading teams to pay him. The Vikings let him walk after seeing him once again spend most of the season in street clothes watching the games get played by someone else. After last season, Robison was noncommittal about his future.

Another target in free agency was guard Andrew Norwell.
