Report: Bills have some interest in QB Sam Bradford
With an NFL loving nation following the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, teams like the Buffalo Bills are starting to turn their eyes toward more affordable options like Sam Bradford.
The Bills are looking for a new starting quarterback after dealing Tyrod Taylor away to the Cleveland Browns, and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network believes Bradford could be a good fit as they begin that search.
The #Vikings have stayed in touch on Sam Bradford, but he may have options, provided he can pass a physical. One team to watch: the #Bills. Good scheme fit and they have some interest, sources say. Case Keenum could be an option in Buffalo, too.

Bradford, who was once projected to be one of the better quarterbacks in the entire league, has shown flashes of brilliance over the course of his career, but has been hampered by injuries and inconsistent play.
The former number one overall NFL Draft pick has been with the Rams, Eagles and Vikings, and could be headed to yet another new city this offseason depending on what happens with the Vikings’ pursuit of Kirk Cousins.
Bradford appeared in just two regular-season games in 2017-18 due to knee issues that have plagued him throughout the entirety of his NFL career. However, he has shown that when healthy, he can be a capable quarterback in the league.
With both Bradford and Bridgewater out, unheralded backup Case Keenum stepped up to start at quarterback and led the Vikings all the way to the NFC Championship Game.
Speaking of Keenum, the tweet also mentions that he could be a fit in Buffalo, which simply means that every NFL franchise without a quarterback — hello, Bills — will be linked, rumored, and whispered to be interested in the bevy of signal-callers likely to be available from Minnesota.
