With primary target Kirk Cousins off the market, the Cardinals moved to Plan B — as in Bradford at quarterback.
Sam Bradford will sign with Arizona when the new league year begins Wednesday, ESPN.com reported, citing an unidentified source.
Because of the knee injury, Bradford wasn’t even able to return to practice until January but surely will have to pass a physical, if he hasn’t already, for the Cardinals.
In 80 NFL games since 2010 with the Rams, Eagles and Vikings, Bradford has completed 1,805 of 2,887 passes (62.5 percent) for 19,049 and 101 touchdowns with 57 interceptions. He missed all of the 2014 season with a knee injury.
The con of getting Butler would be more limited funds to upgrade the offense in free agency. Going a little lower here, the Rams’ Trumaine Johnson and the Redskins’ Bashaud Breeland are two solid options for the Bears’ scheme. The Bills’ E.J. Gaines and the Giants’ Ross Cockrell are sleepers to watch should they hit the market.
The Bears might not go big at corner because the offensive needs, but that doesn’t mean they can’t afford to go back home with little to nothing in free agency.
The venerable Packers wide receiver is the most notable, shocking cut so far, trumping the Dolphins’ decision to part ways with Ndamukong Suh. Rodgers moves on with recently extended Davante Adams and Graham as his go-to guys, but it’s sad to see Nelson leave.
Rodgers should be looking at all these QB contracts, led by those of Garoppolo and Cousins, and knowing he’ll get his relative discount contract double-checked again by the Packers. Martin, the best Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys guard in the league, becomes a free agent in 2019. After what Norwell got, Martin should already hear all that cha-chinging coming out of Jerry Jones’ cash register.
Landry is the game’s ultimate high-volume possession receiver. He’s more of a reliable Cheap Baseball Jerseys extension of a running game and short-area scorer than he is a gamebreaker, but he’s very good in his niche role.
