Cardinals' Sam Bradford: Facing competition from Rosen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While he still expects Bradford to be the starting quarterback, Cardinals coach Steve Wilks noted that "every position is open for competition", Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports. "We got Sam to be our starting quarterback and I would still say that is the case," coach Steve Wilks said. "I'm very excited about Josh, what he can bring. Every position is open for competition."

Wilks seems to be leaving the door open for Josh Rosen, who the Cardinals selected at No. 10 overall after trading up with the Raiders. The outcome was far from ideal for Bradford, as Rosen was once viewed as a likely top-five pick and possible Day 1 starter. Based on Wilks' comments, a training camp battle figures to ensue.

Cardinals' Sam Bradford: Manages some throws Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradford made some throws during the open portion of Thursday's minicamp practice, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

The Cardinals are proceeding slowly with Bradford in an effort to ensure he's fresh for the regular season. Coach Steve Wilks confirmed as much Thursday, telling Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic that the quarterback's limitations are intended to reduce wear and tear on his body. Bradford joined the organization in March after a campaign in which he made only two appearances for the Vikings due to a left knee injury and subsequent surgery, his third as a professional. Although the knee is healthy, according to Wilks, Bradford will continue to have a cap on his workload throughout the offseason program.

Cardinals' Sam Bradford: No throwing yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradford didn't throw Tuesday, which marked the first day of the Cardinals' voluntary minicamp, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.

Because the Cardinals experienced a coaching change this offseason, they were allowed to kick off their program earlier than those who did not. During the second week of workouts, new head honcho Steve Wilks said he would not "rush" Bradford early on, presumably with the quarterback's loaded medical chart in mind. In his most recent stop with the Vikings last season, Bradford missed all but two games due to an injured left knee, which underwent arthroscopic surgery Nov. 7. Fast forward, and Wilks' statement came to fruition at Tuesday's practice. Expect limitations on Bradford's workload to continue into OTAs and potentially June's mandatory minicamp.

Cardinals' Sam Bradford: May be limited this offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Steve Wilks implied Tuesday that Bradford may be limited during the offseason program, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.

Bradford emerged from Week 1 last season with a left knee injury and made just one appearance the rest of the way. Arthroscopic surgery on Nov. 7 was the primary reason, but once healthy, he served as the primary backup to Case Keenum during the Vikings' playoff run. Moving on to the Cardinals in the offseason, Bradford is the favorite to be under center to kick off the upcoming campaign, but his voluminous history of knee injuries appears to be inducing some pause from Wilks, who doesn't want to "rush it" with his new QB, per Josh Weinfuss of As a result, Bradford is a candidate to have his workload capped during OTAs and mandatory minicamp.

Sam Bradford: Officially a Cardinal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradford made his two-year contract with the Cardinals official Friday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The physical was looming as a potential holdup, though the Cardinals obviously know that Bradford's balky left knee is part of what they're signing up for. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer referred to the knee as "degenerative" a couple weeks ago, though he also mentioned that Bradford has been able to ski during the offseason. Never known for his durability, the 30-year-old quarterback may find it especially difficult to stay healthy while playing behind a porous Arizona offensive line. He'll at least get to play with David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald, though the complementary weapons are lacking through the first few days of free agency. Bradford won't have much appeal outside of two-QB leagues unless the Cardinals secure major upgrades around him in the coming weeks. Fellow free-agent addition Mike Glennon doesn't figure to have any real shot at unseating Bradford for the starting job.
