Vikings' Sam Bradford: Facing uncertain future in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradford -- who will be a free agent after next season -- knows that his future in Minnesota could be complicated by Teddy Bridgewater's return from a torn ACL, Matt Vensel of The Star Tribune reports.

Coach Mike Zimmer got out ahead of any potential controversy, saying at the end of last season that Bradford had earned the right to retain the starting job. The 29-year-old set an NFL record for completion percentage (71.6) last year, and while that largely was due to the team's reliance on short passes, Bradford still deserves credit for keeping the offense afloat without the benefit of a competent O-line or running game. The Vikings' pass protection likely will improve due to the signings of tackles Riley Reiff and Mike Remmer, and the running game should get a boost from Latavius Murray and Dalvin Cook. The already solid receiving corps may also be improved, with 2016 first-round pick Laquon Treadwell looking to take a big step forward alongside Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and TE Kyle Rudolph after struggling through an injury-plagued and ineffective rookie campaign. It all adds up to much higher expectations, which could work against Bradford if he struggles early in the season and Bridgewater is back to full health. Bridgewater's looming presence also means the Vikings are unlikely to offer Bradford an extension before Week 1, though it's certainly worth noting Bridgewater is also in a contract year. The team seems content to take a wait-and-see approach.

Vikings' Sam Bradford: Receives vote of confidence
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Bradford "has earned the right to be the starting quarterback," according to coach Mike Zimmer, ESPN's Ben Goessling reports.

Bradford's trade to the Vikings prior to Week 1 caused waves across the league, and by winning his first four games at the helm, he couldn't have gotten off to a better start in Minnesota. Although the team's performance significantly fell off over the course of the campaign, Bradford was hardly the reason for that, as he not only set a new NFL record by completing 71.6 percent of his passes, but also threw for a career-high 3,877 yards. With 20 touchdowns versus just five interceptions to boot, Bradford filled the sudden void created by Teddy Bridgewater's devastating knee injury rather well, justifying Zimmer's vote of confidence in him ahead of next season, when Bridgewater's status is still to be determined.

Vikings' Sam Bradford: Throws three touchdowns for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradford completed 25 of 33 pass attempts for 250 yards and three touchdowns with an interception in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Bears. He also gained 24 yards on his only carry of the game.

Bradford helped his team race out to a 24-10 lead with three touchdown passes in the first half and coasted off of the running game with the result no longer in doubt. He endured some ups and downs for the Vikings this season, but he was able to finish the season strong with six touchdowns compared to one interception during the final two weeks. With the team likely to see some turnover on the offensive side of the ball this offseason, it remains to be seen what role Bradford will operate in next season during the final year of his contract.

Vikings' Sam Bradford: Tosses three scores in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradford completed 34 of 50 passes for 382 yards and three touchdowns Saturday against the Packers.

While Bradford posted season highs in both passing yards and passing scores Saturday, it came behind a season-high 50 passing attempts in an attempt to keep pace with Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. Still, Bradford's performance ranked among his best as a member of the Vikings as he discovered a nearly unstoppable connection with receiver Adam Thielen. Next up, the Oklahoma product will receive an appealing matchup against the Bears in Week 17.

Vikings' Sam Bradford: No touchdowns against Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradford completed 32 of 42 yards for 291 yards and an interception Sunday against the Colts. He also lost a fumble in the 34-6 loss.

Bradford didn't benefit from pass-heavy play-calling after the Vikings got down 27-0 at the half. The 29-year-old quarterback has only thrown multiple touchdown passes in three games this season for an inept Minnesota offense.
