The New York Giants have one of the worst records in the NFL this season. They have been criticized for the team’s quarterback performances this season.
A veteran quarterback just became available. However, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini, the team has no interest in Sam Bradford, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday.
Prior to becoming the Giants head coach, Pat Shurmur was with the Minnesota Vikings. He was first the team’s tight ends coach, before being promoted to interim offensive coordinator when Norv Turner left the team.
Following the season, Shurmur was promoted to full-time offensive coordinator.
Bradford was with the Vikings from 2016-17. He was acquired in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles after Minnesota lost Teddy Bridgewater went down with season-ending knee injury.
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.
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.
Eli Manning has struggled. Rookie Kyle Lauletta was arrested this week after he allegedly nearly hit an officer with his vehicle.
The Giants return to the field on Monday, November 12th against the San Francisco 49ers. It’s a matchup featuring two teams, who have a combined three wins.
Manning has started eight games this season, but the team has gone 1-7 in those contests. He has gone 215 of 315 for 2,377 yards.
The New Orleans, Louisiana native has eight touchdowns. He also has six interceptions.
He has four of those six interceptions in two games.
