OKLAHOMA CITY – A former Sooner football star is joining a new NFL team.
ESPN reports that former OU star and Oklahoma native Sam Bradford is signing a one year contract with the Arizona Cardinals.
Bradford’s deal is expected to be worth $20 million, including $15 million guaranteed, with a one-year option for $20 million.
The last couple of years have been a whirlwind for Bradford. After signing a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, Bradford was traded to the Minnesota Vikings.
In his first season with Minnesota, Bradford posted the league’s highest completion percentage before suffering a knee injury prior to the start of last season.
The former Heisman Trophy winner and first-round draft pick has earned over $114 million in his career, but injuries have plagued him.
While some analysts credit Bradford with being a precision thrower, other NFL players are criticizing him as being injury prone.
