Summary

The role for Sam Bradford right now looks more of a place holder role at the quarterback position as the Cardinals selected Josh Rosen at the top of the draft. Bradford has a long history of injury concerns during his 8 year career. in those 8 years he is now on his fourth team and has played an average of 10 games a season and only played a full 16 game season twice. Bradford only signed a 1-year deal with the Cardinals but coach Steve Wilks insists that their will be a competition at the position. Over the last two seasons with the Vikings, Bradford played in 17 games, throwing for 4,259 yards and passing for 23 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Those numbers are solid for an NFL starting quarterback and if he can win the job from Week 1 in Arizona he could look to put up similar numbers and keep Rosen off the field for at least his rookie season.

Latest News

Cardinals | Sam Bradford rested and ready (Sun Jun 17, 09:30 PM) - Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) saw more reps during team drills as minicamp progressed, and he said limiting his reps has helped him prepare physically and mentally. 'I can really build on what we had done here and coming to training camp ready to go,' Bradford said. 'I feel like we've done a great job of sticking to the plan,' Bradford said. 'I think the plan has worked and my body feels really good right now.'

Our View: Bradford may be rested and ready, but the Cardinals are just waiting for rookie first-round pick QB Josh Rosen to be their starter. We could see Bradford beginning the 2018 season as the starter, then Rosen taking over if (when) the Cardinals are out of the playoff race...or when Bradford gets banged up.

Cardinals | Sam Bradford likely to be Week 1 starter (Fri Jun 15, 07:02 PM) - Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford likely will be the starting quarterback for the team's Week 1 game even though QB Josh Rosen performed well during offseason workouts, in the opinion of AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban.

Our View: That's what most expect, but we haven't even got to training camp. Bradford is the seasoned vet who could begin the year as the starter but we all know Rosen is the quarterback of the future. Rosen is known as a quick study and should be properly challenged by Cardinals OC Mike McCoy.
