Bradford intends to sign with Cardinals

Arizona Republic's Kent Somers says it is a deal averaging $18 million per season, of course, that might include a third year on the contract as a dummy year, voiding to spread the cap hit over one additional season.

While he is not getting paid what Kirk Cousins reportedly will get from the Vikings, Bradford isn't exactly a bargain. Steve Wilks, former Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator has not taken the reigns at head coach in the desert, and quarterback Sam Bradford (per Adam Schefter) has agreed to a contract with the Cardinals. That means likely new destinations for Bradford, Case Keenum, and Teddy Bridgewater. There is a team option for a second year, at $20 million. 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 Vikings let him walk after seeing him once again spend most of the season in street clothes watching the games get played by someone else.

The No. 1 overall pick in 2010 out of Oklahoma cost the St. Louis Rams a fortune, but was nothing close to what they expected him to be. He was traded to Philadelphia in 2015. His 101.1 quarterback with Minnesota was the best mark of the four teams he has played with. They have pick No. 15 in the first round.

Julius Randle career-high leads Lakers past Cavaliers
The Cavs had absolutely zero answers for Randle as he gashed their defense down in the paint repeatedly throughout the night. Since being inserted into the starting lineup, Randle has been arguably the best player for the Lakers this season.

Vikings have reached out to Drew Brees' agent
They have already been linked to keeping each of their free agent quarterbacks as well as at least one big name outside the team. These teams offer just as strong of a chance to win, so if I were Brees, I'd be keeping my options open.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Recent release has 'reignited' fire inside him
Garoppolo's five starts were enough to earn him a five-year, $137 million contract, with $74 million guaranteed, this offseason. While it's unknown exactly the paycut Seattle wanted Sherman to take, it's surely less than $10 million for the 2018 season.

The 2008 Heisman Trophy victor who grew up in Oklahoma City threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in a Week 1 win over New Orleans, but suffered a hit that sidelined him for weeks, and a comeback was eventually cut short by knee surgery. He missed all of the 2014 season with a knee injury.

Now, Bradford will take over for Carson Palmer, who retired after 14 National Football League seasons and five with the Cardinals.

Peterson, a seven-time All-Pro running back, began last season with New Orleans but was dealt to the Cardinals after barely playing for the Saints.
