Sam Bradford Hasn’t Practiced In 5 Weeks Because Knee Is ‘Basically Bone On Bone’


Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that QB Sam Bradford had not practiced for the Cardinals the past five weeks because that left knee is “basically bone on bone.”

Mortensen adds that Bradford has no cartilage in his left knee following two ACL surgeries.

On Monday, Bradford officially passed through waivers unclaimed and is now a free agent, which isn’t all that surprising, considering the amount of money he was owed.

However, it remains to be seen whether quarterback-needy teams will bring him in, given his knee issues.

Bradford, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Rams back in 2010. He spent four years with the Rams before he was traded to the Eagles in 2015. After Bridgewater sustained a serious knee injury last year, the Eagles traded him to the Vikings for draft compensation.

Bradford played out the final year of his two-year, $36 million contract that included $36 million guaranteed with the Vikings.

The Cardinals signed him to a two-year, $40 million contract that includes $15 million guaranteed this past offseason, only to release him last week.

In 2018, Bradford appeared in three games for the Cardinals and completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 400 yards to go along with two touchdowns and four interceptions.
