Cardinals QB Sam Bradford does team drills, feels ‘really good right now’
When Sam Bradford signed with the Arizona Cardinals this NFL offseason, they made it clear they were going to take it slow with him, and so far their plan seems to be working.
Bradford has always had the talent of an above average quarterback, but it seems everytime that he starts to excel an injury pops up and ruins his season. So far, Bradford is feeling good and is excited about what this season could bring.
“I feel really good right now,” Bradford said via ESPN. “It was obviously good to be out there in team [periods] today, get some of that work. To this point, really just been building into it.”
Last year, Bradford had statistically one of his best games ever to open the season with the Minnesota Vikings. It was later revealed that he suffered a knee injury, and he only appeared in one game the rest of the season.
He signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals, but now has some competition for the starting job with rookie Josh Rosen. Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks is also really encouraged by what he has seen so far this offseason from Bradford.
“He’s gotten stronger with his rehab and those kinds of things,” Wilks said. “I think he’s definitely studied the playbook, understands the system. I think, for the most part, we’ve given him the certain looks that he needs but most importantly you want to make sure they’re live and that’s what we tried to increase today, the live looks.”
From some of the Cardinals staff’s comments, it seems they would like to have Bradford start this year, but that all depends on if he can stay healthy this year.
