Sam Bradford will sign with the Arizona Cardinals when free agency officially opens, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday.

The move to get Bradford is reminiscent of the Cardinals signing Palmer, a former No. 1 overall pick with a fantastic deep ball and a guy with a ton of upside, but someone who was largely cast aside because of injuries.

Bradford spent the last two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, but only played in two games. The veteran quarterback posted the league's highest completion percentage in his first season with the Vikings, and Bradford, 30, looked poised for a breakout year in 2017. While lighting up the New Orleans Saints in the season opener, Bradford sustained a non-contact left knee injury that would doom his season.

Norman Haynes of Victoria, Texas said his daughter, 18-year-old trumpet player Makena Campa, was on the bus with her mother. Dodson-Benson said her son was sleeping when he was awakened by the bus hitting "some sort of hard bumps".

The Cardinals used Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert as starters over the remainder of the season; Stanton played the final two games on a torn ACL, according to receiver Larry Fitzgerald. He was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2010.

According to the NFL Network, Bradford has said his knee injury subsided in recent months, allowing him to return to practice ahead of the postseason, and that he "absolutely" intends to keep playing in 2018.

Jimmy Kempski, a writer for the Philly Voice, tweeted that if Bradford collects the entire $20 million from year one of the contract, he'll have made $134.1 million in his career - but has won just 34 games, and never more than seven in a season. With Kirk Cousins agreeing to terms with the Purple Gang, Cards' general manager Steve Keim had to act fast and get someone from the free-agent pool. He also has had 57 interceptions and 33 fumbles.
