Cardinals now find their quarterback as free agents go fast
The quarterback dust is beginning to settle, with only the Jets and Bills still searching through the mist.
The Cardinals agreed to a one-year, $20 million deal with free agent Sam Bradford on Tuesday, ESPN reported, finding at least their short-term replacement for the retired Carson Palmer. The contract also reportedly includes a one-year option for $20 million.

So to hell with playing it safe and to hell with worrying about a contract.

He stares ahead. Squinting. Visualizing.
