The quarterback is scheduled to be a free-agent this offseason and it’s unknown if he will be returning to the Minnesota Vikings in 2018.
Following his first season in the NFL with the St. Louis Rams that resulted in him being named the Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press, the future looked bright for Sam Bradford’s career as a professional football player.
However, Bradford’s time in the league since then has been anything but a smooth ride.
After tearing his left ACL for the second straight year in 2014, the Rams decided to send the quarterback and is abnormally long sleeves to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for Nick Foles. Bradford only last one season with the Eagles before he was traded to the Minnesota Vikings in 2016.
The quarterback’s time with the Vikings has been nothing to brag about. After failing to lead a team to the postseason for the sixth time in his career in 2016, Bradford only appeared in a total of six quarters for Minnesota this past season due to a lingering knee injury.
When the new league year begins in March, the quarterback will be a free-agent for the first time in his career. Stranger things have happened before, but it doesn’t seem likely that Bradford will be re-joining the Vikings in 2018 based on his injury risk and the amount of money he will likely be looking for (around $15 million per year).
So if the quarterback is not on Minnesota’s roster next season, what other teams could he potentially land with?
