      Heard this morning with this contract Bradford will have a career earning of $135 million and has never as the starting QB won more than 7 games in any given season.

          He’s played 14-16 games four times in his career and 10 games once. If he can stay healthy, the OL is not horrible, the play calling is acceptable and the skills players around him good – David Johnson will be a BIG help – the deal could be more than worth it. Hi ceiling really is sky high.

    Part of that is terrible offensive lines he has played behind (minus last 2 years with Minnesota, who’s OL was only ok) which caused most of his injuries. Heck think of terrible teams he was stuck on. (Fisher’s rams, Kelly’s eagles) just about every qb would have failed in those scenarios.

    I get it, it’s easy to point the finger at Sammy and just say he is injury prone (true due to the past o lines) and that he sucks (not true) since he has the season completion record and look at how he did vs the saints in week 1 before going down. When he is on a decent team, with a good OL, he is a decent QB. Not worth 20 million, but Cousins isn’t worth 85 million either.

    Now….does Arizona have a good OL? I have no idea, but he will have a decent rb and an ok wr corps.

      Both an aged Vick and Nick Foles looked pretty good in Kelly’s offense.

        Only partial year 2013 foles looked good. His follow up was a disaster because of Kelly. Check the QBRs of all 3 under Kelly. Sammy (2015) and Vick (2013) were identical and foles was the least of the 3. So disagree with you.

            The 2016 Vikings O Line sucked, too. Bradford has been sacked 2.375 times per game throughout his career, and has a 6.2% Sack Rate. He can work behind a bad line if he has checkdown options, as his excellent 2016 season showed. He played well enough in Kelly’s offense, but it was the year after Kelly had traded LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin left as a free agent.

        The 2016 OL sucked. The 2017 OL was pretty good the first half of the season, including the one-and-a-half games Bradford played.
