Bills appear to be interested in Sam Bradford

Bradford was the third domino in a wild market for veteran signal callers that opened this week. With Kirk Cousins agreeing to terms with the Purple Gang, Cards' general manager Steve Keim had to act fast and get someone from the free-agent pool. After stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings, he is headed back to the NFC West and will sign with the Arizona Cardinals, according to multiple sources.

Pelissero also reported that Buffalo could be interested in Minnesota quarterback Case Keenum. The deal includes $15 million guaranteed and a one-year option for $20 million, per Schefter. All three deals can become official when the new league year begins Wednesday. He threw 23 touchdown passes to five interceptions and averaged 7.2 yards per attempt in 17 starts. 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.

The Vikings didn't see any drop-off from Bradford to Keenum, which made it more likely that they'd move on from the 2010 No. 1 pick. Bradford could be a bridge quarterback before the team addresses its long-term future at the position later.

After sustaining a torn ACL during a Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers in 2013 while with the Rams, Bradford missed the entire 2014 season after injuring the same ACL during a preseason game against the Cleveland Browns.
