Five Teams To Watch This Offseason, Part Five of Five: Arizona Cardinals

Sam Bradford

Sam Bradford appears set to land on his feet during this dizzying period of National Football League free agency.

Arizona went 8-8 in 2017, and after the season ended, both head coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer announced their retirement.

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Bradford intends to sign with Arizona on a one-year, $20 million deal with $15 million guaranteed.

Arizona is now estimated to have almost $22 million in available cap space, but that's before the expected signing of quarterback Sam Bradford, who will reportedly make $20 million on a one-year deal with an option for 2019.

Look for Bradford to be the starter but it will be highly disappointing if the Cardinals were done at the position. Early Tuesday, news broke of Kirk Cousins heading to the Vikings and Case Keenum signing with Denver.

But Bradford and Cardinals new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy form an interesting tandem, not to mention plugging the veteran into an offense with a skill group headlined by David Johnson and future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald. He has spent the last two seasons with Minnesota but only played two games in the 2017 season after becoming injured. He's completed 63 percent of his passes for his career, 72 percent the past two seasons in Minnesota. They have pick No. 15 in the first round. That's the knee that sidelined Bradford for most of last season. After five seasons plagued with knee injuries and a losing record of 18-30-1, Bradford was shipped to the Philadelphia Eagles. He even missed the entire 2014 season with an ACL injury.

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.
