The Cardinals had a vital need at quarterback after Carson Palmer's retirement.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Sam Bradford intends to sign with the Arizona Cardinals. They turned down his request last summer for a one-year, $4 million extension. He missed the entire 2014 season with an ACL injury, a year after missing nine games in 2013 with an ACL injury to the same knee.

The first few major dominoes have fallen in free agency with the biggest being Pro Bowl quarterback Kirk Cousins reportedly deciding to sign a three-year, fully-guaranteed deal with the Minnesota Vikings.

Bradford, who played college football at Oklahoma, was the first-overall draft pick by the Rams in 2010. Bradford, who was the Vikings' opening day starter in 2017 before a knee injury essentially ended his season, was one of the top QBs available despite his injury history. It might not be quite as dire as the one Bradford surprisingly thrived working behind in Minnesota two seasons ago, but it's not that far off.

The military further assured that the operations are conducted in a manner that it only targets the terrorist and no civilian gets hurt.

The Arizona Cardinals and safety Tyrann Mathieu "are making positive strides" toward a restructured deal that would keep the defensive back in Arizona, according to an AZ Central report.

The Cardinals don't have any other quarterbacks under contract.

His last full season, 2016, Bradford started 15 games and posted a league-leading 71.6 completion percentage to go with his 99.3 passer rating, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions.

The last time Bradford was healthy for almost an entire season, he was one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL. While lighting up the New Orleans Saints in the season opener, Bradford sustained a non-contact left knee injury that would doom his season.
