Cardinals reportedly to sign Sam Bradford

2018 NFL free agency: Bills have 'some interest' in QB Sam Bradford

NFL free agency 2018: Buffalo Bills interested in Sam Bradford, Case Keenum (report)

When the new league year opens Wednesday, the Arizona Cardinals will sign Sam Bradford, ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported Tuesday, making him the first addition to GM Steve Keim's previously barren QB room.

With the Minnesota Vikings' quarterback situation settled, other pieces appear to be falling into place.

Last season, Bradford played in just two games for the Vikings due to injuries in the same knee. His 101.1 quarterback with Minnesota was the best mark of the four teams he has played with. In his first season with the Vikings, he completed almost 70 percent of his passes, had 20 touchdown and only five interceptions.

The Cardinals remain a candidate to take a quarterback early in the National Football League draft next month.

The Vikings didn't see any drop-off from Bradford to Keenum, which made it more likely that they'd move on from the 2010 No. 1 pick.

Nonetheless, Bradford brought stability to the quarterback position.

The Oklahoma alum, of course, has a lengthy injury history.

After sustaining a torn ACL during a Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers in 2013 while with the Rams, Bradford missed the entire 2014 season after injuring the same ACL during a preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. He was shut down for the 2017 last season after needing surgery to help fix a bone bruise in his knee.
