This is the domino we have been waiting for. Once the Cardinals alleged top two targets, Kirk Cousins and Case Keenum, made agreements with the Vikings and Broncos respectively, the question became who was next in line.
Well, the answer, as has been speculated over the last several months is now out and it is Sam Bradford.
Bradford is a walking injury report, but when he is on the field, he is one of the most accurate and conservative quarterbacks in the NFL.
He will give the Cardinals what they want, a quarterback who takes care of the ball, can make difficult throws, but also won't force it.
It allows the Cardinals to focus on the ground game and lean on the running game, a departure from the Bruce Arians offensive philosophy.
The Arizona Cardinals have their man.
