Vikings to say goodbye to Case Keenum, Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater

Vikings to say goodbye to Case Keenum, Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater

The Bills and other National Football League teams are allowed to begin negotiating with agents of free agents beginning Monday but can't officially come to terms until 4 p.m on Wednesday.

Arizona went 8-8 in 2017, and after the season ended, both head coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer announced their retirement.

The news also comes just hours after reports surfaced that former Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins would sign a deal with the Vikings.

The 30-year-old Bradford has dealt with several knee injuries throughout his career. And if the Cardinals want him back in 2019, they'll have the ability to exercise an option on his contract for another $20 million.

Light snow possible Monday
The rain and light snow could continue into the night Monday, though new snow accumulation should stay at less than an inch. The second half of the week looks like it will be dry and seasonably cold, with temperatures forecast to be in the 40s.

The Arizona Cardinals solved their short-term situation at quarterback by reportedly picking up Sam Bradford on a one-year, $20 million contract. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the deal will be for one year and $20 million, with $15 guaranteed. He's a career 62.5 percent passer with a 1.77 touchdown-to-interception rate. He has spent the last two seasons with Minnesota but only played two games in the 2017 season after becoming injured.

In no way does this mean the Cardinals themselves are set at quarterback. Expect the Cardinals to land a couple more, maybe another veteran and a draft pick.

In other roster moves, the Cardinals announced that they have released running back Adrian Peterson after a half-season in the desert that included a pair of impressive games and a season-ending injury.

Bradford appears to be healthy, at least as healthy as someone who has gotten hurt as many time as he has, can. He was traded to Minnesota in September 2016 and started 15 games that season after Teddy Bridgewater's knee injury.
