QB - FA
Week 3 Outlook
The Arizona Cardinals have released quarterback Sam Bradford.
Incredibly, Bradford signed a two-year, $40 million deal with the team back in March. He'll wind up "only" getting paid about $13.5 million from the team, and it appears as if his days as a starting QB in the NFL are over. Mike Glennon will back up rookie Josh Rosen from here on out.
Arizona quarterback Sam Bradford is inactive for the team's Week 6 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. He has now been inactive for three weeks in a row. Josh Rosen will start for the Cardinals, with Mike Glennon serving as the backup.
Barring an injury, we have probably seen the last of Bradford in Arizona. The contract that the Cardinals gave to Bradford in the offseason was eye-opening, especially for a team that was expected to be rebuilding. It looks even worse now that they have given up in favor of their first-round rookie quarterback after three weeks.
Sam Bradford will be inactive for Week 4 against the Seahawks.
Bradford was not expected to play in Week 4 as he lost his starting job to Josh Rosen but to be inactive is surprising. Mike Glennon moves into the #2 spot on the QB depth chart. Fantasy owners holding out to Bradford should be moving on.
Cardinals coach Steve Wilks would not commit to a starting quarterback for Week 4 versus the Seahawks.
Wilks said he would watch the tape before making a decision. Bradford actually got off to a great start today, throwing two touchdowns in the first quarter. He was eventually removed in favor of rookie Josh Rosen, however. Rosen didn't do much too impress, but it's hard to imagine him being any worse than Bradford has been.
Sam Bradford completed 17-of-27 passes for 90 yards and an interception as the Cardinals got dominated by the Rams 34-0.
It was a dreadful performance. Arizona's offense didn't even cross midfield until the second to last play of the game. Pitifully, Bradford averaged just 3.3 yards per attempt. There is no reason for the Cardinals to start him next week versus the Bears, but an official announcement has yet to be made.
