It might not be quite as dire as the one Bradford surprisingly thrived working behind in Minnesota two seasons ago, but it's not that far off.

Sam Bradford plans to sign a one-year, $20 million deal with the Arizona Cardinals when free agency opens on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. In his first season with the Vikings, passed for 3,877 yards, 20 touchdowns, and just five interceptions.

Bradford had an outstanding 2016 season for the Vikings, but lingering knee problems as a result of previous surgeries to fix an ACL caused him to miss most of the 2017 season. And the team is obviously not done when it comes to addressing the position.

The Bills are also expected to keep tabs on the Case Keenum situation, as they need a certain level to keep them at a playoff level. With Kirk Cousins agreeing to terms with the Purple Gang, Cards' general manager Steve Keim had to act fast and get someone from the free-agent pool.

The Vikings didn't see any drop-off from Bradford to Keenum, which made it more likely that they'd move on from the 2010 No. 1 pick.

The Heisman Trophy victor was drafted by St. Louis with the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He was shut down for the 2017 last season after needing surgery to help fix a bone bruise in his knee.

Bradford has a career completion percentage of 62.5-percent.
