Cardinals release Sam Bradford after signing him to one-year, $20 million contract this offseason

Less than eight months after signing Sam Bradford to a one-year, $20 million deal, the Cardinals have cut ties with the quarterback. 

Bradford started the first three games of the season but along with the rest of the offense, struggled to find any consistency in Mike McCoy’s scheme. He was pulled with two minutes to go in the team’s Week 3 game against the Bears and replaced by 2018 first-round pick Josh Rosen, who was expected to serve as Bradford’s backup during his rookie season. 

That was the last snap Bradford took for the Cardinals. In those three games, he completed just 62.5 percent of his throws for 400 yards (and a paltry 5.0 YPA average), two touchdowns, six turnovers and six sacks.
