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

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford passes against the Seattle Seahawks during the first half of an NFL football preseason game Friday Aug. 18 2017 in Seattle

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Bradford didn't come cheap and will make $20 million for the 2018 season with an option for another $20 million in 2019. But can Bradford really be the long-term answer at quarterback the team needs?

The Heisman Trophy victor was drafted by St. Louis with the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

In his lone season as Minnesota's top quarterback in 2016, Bradford finished with 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Late Monday night, Case Keenum agreed to a deal with the Denver Broncos and it appears the New York Jets are pursuing Teddy Bridgewater.

In no way does this mean the Cardinals themselves are set at quarterback. However, he has dealt with injuries throughout much of his career that has prevented him from truly fulfilling his potential. And Bradford himself is seen as a major injury risk after playing in all of two games due to a bum knee last season.

Look for Bradford to be the starter but it will be highly disappointing if the Cardinals were done at the position.

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. "Can you believe he's going to play the 15 games he did two years ago, or he's going to play the one game where he hit the turf this year?" He didn't start another game the rest of the year.

However, amid his impressive showing, Bradford suffered a noncontact injury to his left knee - the same knee in which he has torn his ACL twice.

Minnesota is reportedly moving forward with Kirk Cousins as the team's quarterback.

Also, former OU linebacker Corey Nelson will sign a 1-year deal with Philadelphia worth up to $2.25 million, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.
