Sam Bradford is returning to the NFC West

Sam Bradford is returning to the NFC West

1 overall pick in the 2010 draft by the St. Louis Rams, is coming off his third surgery on a troublesome left knee after starring in the Vikings' season-opening win against the Saints. 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.

He was one of seven quarterbacks the Vikings have started since drafting Christian Ponder in 2012's first round.

Bradford played in just two games last season, making it only one quarter in the second. The problem is he continues to be a guy who can not be depended on to suit up from week-to-week.

After all that, he now somehow convinced the Arizona Cardinals to fork out $20 million in 2018 for his services - with an option for another $20 million in 2019.

There are still a lot of factors at play - namely, Carson Wentz's health - and the Eagles don't appear to be in too much of a rush to move their Super Bowl MVP-winning back-up quarterback.

"So dumb. Bradford has been paid more for nothing than anyone in history of NFL", Weddle wrote.

Weddle is 100 percent correct. That's the knee that sidelined Bradford for most of last season.

But ultimately, losing Bradford is no sweat off the Vikings' back after the team did just fine without him in 2017.

The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly replacing one Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback with another. What didn't make sense was who they signed.

Running back is another area to possibly address in the even their feature back David Johnson gets hurt again, Carlos Hyde, who is a free agent from the 49ers is a name that could be thrown around in their organization. They would have been better off to spend the money anywhere else.
