Quarterback Sam Bradford is expected to sign with the Arizona Cardinals, multiple outlets reported on Tuesday.
Bradford's deal is for one year at $20 million, with $15 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Bradford has a second-year option at $20 million.
The contract cannot be finalized until the new league year opens on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.
The addition of Bradford is a welcome one for the Cardinals, who have been in need of a quarterback since Carson Palmer announced his retirement in January. The 38-year-old Palmer was named to the Pro Bowl three times, but his 2017 season was cut short by a broken arm that limited him to seven games.
Bradford, who was slated to be an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday, performed well in his first season with the Minnesota Vikings in place of an injured Teddy Bridgewater. The 30-year-old Bradford was not as fortunate in the 2017 season opener, as he sustained a non-contact left knee injury during Minnesota's 29-19 victory over the New Orleans Saints.
