Sam Bradford getting a bunch of money to join the Arizona Cardinals


The Cardinals had an eye on restructuring Mathieu's 2016 extension before they signed Bradford and whatever's left of his knees. Expect the Cardinals to select a quarterback within the first few rounds of the draft this year as well.

The former Heisman Trophy victor and first-round draft pick has earned over $114 million in his career, but injuries have plagued him. After making $18 million in 2017 and playing in just two games because of knee issues, he actually gets a raise that would bring his career earnings to $134 million for his first nine National Football League seasons. In the season opener on a Monday night against New Orleans, Bradford completed 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and a career-best 143.0 passer rating, earning him NFC offensive player of the week honors. Bradford missed the rest of the season, ending it on injured reserve, and he had his left knee scoped by renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in early November.

The last couple of years have been a whirlwind for Bradford. And now, it looks like that game against the Bears was his last in a Minnesota uniform. He's not to the point where he's like, 'This is what we're going to do'. "I think it's going to be fun to be a part of that". But in their little time together so far, especially at dinner Thursday night, Bradford said it was "great" getting to know Wilks and learning about his "mindset and his philosophies, what he wants to accomplish here, his vision for this team and this offense".

Glennon, 28, spent four seasons with Tampa Bay, mostly as a backup, before signing a three-year, $45 million contract with Chicago a year ago.

Before agreeing with Bradford, the Cardinals had no QBs on their roster after the retirement of Carson Palmer and the departure of free agents Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert.

"To be given that opportunity, I'm going to make the most of it", he said.

When the newest Cardinals player was introduced at the team's practice facility Friday, he gave perspective on how those ailments have impacted him moving to his fourth franchise in five seasons. And, of course, there's wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. "I am very comfortable standing in the pocket".

Nevertheless, Bradford says the surgery he had got him to a place where the knee now feels better.

The Cardinals claimed linebacker Jeremy Cash on waivers and released defensive lineman Josh Mauro.
