The Arizona Cardinals have released quarterback Sam Bradford on Saturday. He signed a one-year deal with the franchise in the off-season.
Bradford’s contract called for him to receive $20 million this season. However, he made just $13.5 million in three games.
He received a $10 million signing bonus. He also received $2.5 million in base salary and $1 million in playing time bonuses.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, he is now on waivers. Should a team claim his services, they would be responsible for paying the rest of his 2018 and 2019 contract.
The new team — if he was claimed — they would have to pay him $2.5 million in base salary. They would also have to pay him $2.5 million in roster bonuses.
Plus, they would be on the hook for paying him $20 million in 2019.
The veteran lost his starting job to Josh Rosen, who was drafted by the team in the 2018 NFL Draft.
“I think it was pretty obvious why (Wilks) made it,” Bradford said last month of his benching. “Obviously I wish I would’ve played better, that’s for sure. I wish I could’ve helped this team get off to a better start.”
Bradford has been sidelined with a pectoral injury. Prior to being cleared, it was not clear if he was healthy enough to be active against the Kansas City Chiefs.
In his final game with the team against the Chicago Bears in Week 3 — a 16-14 loss — he went 13 of 19 for 157 yards. He also had two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Bradford also started in Week 1 and Week 2 against the Washington Redskins and the Los Angeles Rams respectively. In those two games, he went 37 of 61 for 243 yards. He also had two interceptions.
