Magic, yes. There’s no other way to describe it. Mr. Bradford is just one of those special injury-prone players who can’t seem to get out of his own way.
In four of his eight NFL seasons, the Oklahoma product has failed to reach 11 games played. He’s failed to play eight games in three of those seasons. From shoulders to knees to simply getting smacked around in the pocket, this man simply can’t stay healthy.
Bradford, 30, was supposed to be the Minnesota Vikings starting quarterback a year ago. After just two games, yet again, he was knocked out due to injury. Case Keenum took over and led the Vikings to an NFL title game appearance.
All told, Bradford’s thrown for 19,049 yards and 101 touchdowns to 57 interceptions in 80 career games. He’s also raked in a ton of money with the latest coming from the organization that calls home the desert.
