The Sam Bradford error is over. The Arizona Cardinals announced on their Saturday bye week that they have released the veteran quarterback, meaning he is off the books, for the most part and the mistake was moved on from.

It was a quick relationship for the Arizona Cardinals who were roundly criticized for their initial signing of Bradford.

They proved the critics right as Bradford was abysmal with the Cardinals, leading an absolutely dreadful offense.

Bradford finished with an even 400 yards on the season, completing 62.5% of his passes for only two touchdowns and four interceptions.

The Arizona Cardinals had the worst statistical offense in the NFL in his time.

In a more surprising move, the Cardinals also announce that offensive lineman John Wetzel was placed on injured reserve, ending his season since he wouldn't be eligible to return until the playoffs.

Good luck to Bradford and quick healing to Wetzel.
