Player Notes
Jun 19 1:40pm ET

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Sam Bradford will likely enter the season as the starter, despite fierce competition from rookie Josh Rosen. This is good news for Bradford owners, as he should be a QB2 for the majority of the season and is not likely to lose his job soon unless he severely underperforms. This makes Rosen a good option in case Bradford gets injured, but ultimately he should not have fantasy appeal until we can see some games from him in the regular season.

Jun 17 9:33pm ET

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.'

Jun 15 7:13pm ET

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.

Jun 6 12:10am ET

The Arizona Cardinals are expected to give veteran quarterback Sam Bradford considerable work during the team's minicamp. This is good news for the signal-caller, as he should be the starter for the team's offense at the start of the season (given that he is able to play healthy). Bradford should be considered a QB2 with minimal upside and should maintain the values of running back David Johnson (RB1) and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (WR1/2).

Jun 5 5:43pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford's (knee) practice repetitions are expected to increase in minicamp next week. He is on schedule in his rehabilitation, according to head coach Steve Wilks, and Bradford likes how he feels physically and mentally.

May 11 10:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford is the starting quarterback, head coach Steve Wilks said Friday, May 11, but Wilks added that he wouldn't hold back QB Josh Rosen.

Apr 27 12:50pm ET

Even after the Arizona Cardinals traded up five spots to select quarterback Josh Rosen at No. 10 overall in Thursday night's first round of the draft, quarterback Sam Bradford remains the starter, for now. Bradford is guaranteed $15 million in 2018 and Mike Glennon is guaranteed $4 million. "We got Sam to be our starting quarterback and I would still say that is the case," head coach Steve Wilks said. "I'm very excited about Josh ... what he can bring. Every position is open for competition." Rosen is very polished and was perhaps the most NFL-ready of the QB prospects in the draft class, so he'll surely give Bradford plenty of competition in training camp. But as long as Bradford doesn't fall flat, he should open the season as the starter. However, given Bradford's extensive injury history, one has to expect that Rosen will be making starts for Arizona at some point in 2018. Bradford will be a shaky fantasy backup, while Rosen has as much upside as any quarterback that was drafted Thursday night.

Apr 27 2:13am ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford remains the team's projected Week 1 starter ahead of first-round pick QB Josh Rosen, according to head coach Steve Wilks, though he indicated that could change.

Apr 26 9:20pm ET

The Arizona Cardinals traded up to select UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen at No. 10 overall in the 2018 NFL draft. Rosen becomes the fourth quarterback selected in the top 10 of a draft, which is the first time ever in NFL history. Even though the Cards signed oft-injured quarterback Sam Bradford in free agency, Rosen could easily step in and start right off the bat. If he does, he'll likely latch on to wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald early and often. Rosen will have strong dynasty/keeper league value and will be an intriguing redraft prospect in two-QB leagues. Rosen isn't very mobile, but he's a great pocket passer, has great football IQ and is NFL-ready.

Apr 23 1:20pm ET

The Arizona Cardinals reportedly love Baker Mayfield and could trade up as far as the number five overall pick to draft him. Mayfield has many suitors around the league, and although the Cardinals have Sam Bradford pencilled in as their current starter, Mayfield would definitely be drafted as the quarterback of the future for the franchise. Regardless of if they take a quarterback, Bradford will likely be the starter for the team and warrants low-end QB2 value whereas Mayfield is a mid-round dynasty selection at best regardless of where he lands.

Apr 19 4:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) is not having any problems with his knee and has been limited during offseason workouts because there is no reason to rush things in April, according to head coach Steve Wilks.

Apr 17 11:10pm ET

Quarterback Baker Mayfield has his final visit with the Arizona Cardinals before the draft coming up. The Cardinals are a team looking for a long-term solution at quarterback despite signing the veteran Sam Bradford. Although Mayfield will likely go ahead of the Cardinals pick, they could trade up and secure his services for the foreseeable future. Regardless, we will not know who the Cardinals will pick leading up to the draft, making Bradford (until further notice) a locked-in QB2 for the season.

Apr 17 11:10pm ET

As expected, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Sam Bradford was limited to start offseason activities for the team. However, the fact that he was able to play at some capacity shows that he will be healthy for the majority of the offseason/preseason activities, allowing him to develop chemistry with top receiver Larry Fitzgerald and his other options. With the offense that the Cardinals have, Bradford is a QB2; as he is the projected starter, he makes wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald a high-end WR2 option for a team that is hoping to challenge for the playoffs this year.

Apr 17 10:13pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford was limited in the team's first offseason minicamp practice Tuesday, April 17, and head coach Steve Wilks said afterward Bradford will continue to remain limited for the time being.

Apr 11 6:43pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he believes the Cardinals can have the top offense in the NFL in 2018 if QB Sam Bradford can stay healthy.

Apr 3 1:50am ET

The Arizona Cardinals made an offer to free-agent wide receiver Jordan Matthews. Matthews also recently visited with the Patriots. It's unclear if Arizona still has interest in Matthews after signing wideout Brice Butler on Monday, but they could still probably use the depth. Matthews played in a career-low 10 games with Buffalo due to injuries last year. In Arizona, he'd be reuniting with quarterback Sam Bradford, who he clicked with in Philadelphia. However, Matthews' fantasy value would be limited, likely competing for the third wideout duties with J.J. Nelson.

Apr 1 1:20pm ET

Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson's draft stock appears to be on the rise, and it's now hard to imagine him falling out of the first round, according to Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz. The Arizona Cardinals at 15 overall is a possibility for Jackson. The Louisville product is an athletic freak, but he may not be all that projectable at the next level, and some scouts believe he's better off transitioning to wideout. The Cardinals signed Sam Bradford this offseason, but he's certainly not a long-term option at the position. Jackson will be an interesting young player to watch as he makes the move to the NFL, and he won't be much of a redraft option in 2018.

Mar 19 3:50pm ET

Newly-signed Arizona Cardinals quarterback Sam Bradford has been given a $40 million contract with $15 million guaranteed. This move suggests that the Cardinals plan to use Bradford as a starter, or at least view him as the favorite to win the starting job for the team entering the 2018 NFL season. When healthy, Bradford should be considered a low-ceiling QB2 who should help wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald maintain his WR2 status for the upcoming year. For a player with a degenerative knee condition, though, that sum of money is rather steep.

Mar 16 10:13pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) said his knee is feeling strong despite all the injuries during his career. 'I've been through a lot with it, but all I can tell you is how I feel right now and really where it's gone since I had the procedure in November,' Bradford said. 'It's done nothing but get better and I feel good at the moment.'

Mar 16 1:23pm ET

Free-agent QB Sam Bradford (Vikings) officially signed a one-year contract worth $20 million with the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, March 16.
