Bradford intends to sign with Cards

Cardinals reach 1-year deal with QB Sam BradfordEds: Updates. He later added that the deal is for one year at $20 million with another option year possible at the same rate.

The truth resides somewhere in between those two extreme opinions, as tiresome as it makes this column's clickability. The 30-year-old started in place of the injured Bradford in the 2017 season, throwing for 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Instead, Minnesota turned to Keenum, who threw for 3,500 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions while leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game. It might not be quite as dire as the one Bradford surprisingly thrived working behind in Minnesota two seasons ago, but it's not that far off. Bradford is a wait-and-see proposition. And while quarterback wins don't mean much, winning 42 percent of the time while averaging more than $14 million a season suggests something has gone horribly wrong. And it became all but a certainty when the Vikings agreed to acquire free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins on Tuesday, as Schefter reported. The eighth is expected to be Cousins, who will get into town Wednesday night to visit the Vikings' new Eagan headquarters.

Bradford, drafted by the Rams first overall in 2010 out of Oklahoma, was also reportedly getting interest from the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.

Glennon's 2017 season was even worse that of Bradford's outside of the ridiculous $18 million he received to sign with Chicago as a free agent.

Bradford underwent season-ending knee surgery in November with hopes of curing ligament damage, but the procedure might not have returned him to full fitness. To get that guy, general manager Steve Keim may have to do something he has not been prone to do: move up in the draft. They have pick No. 15 in the first round.

The Heisman Trophy victor was drafted by St. Louis with the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Would Cleveland be willing to part with one of its two top-five picks?
