Arizona Cardinals Sign Sam Bradford: Few can throw the ball as well as Sam Bradford

When Sam Bradford is healthy and on the field, there are few who are as good.

While we still wait for the official contract for Sam Bradford to be signed, while we slog through the next four hours, I thought it would be great to get a look at some of the highlights and start to turn the positives out of the signing of Sam Bradford.

Yes, it is going to be hard, but when you look at Sam Bradford there are some things you like:

  1. Bradford is extremely accurate. The last three seasons he is complete 65% or higher in each of the last three season.
  2. Bradford doesn’t turn the ball over. In his career, he has a 2% interception rate, that is absurd for someone with as many starts, 80, as Bradford. Compare that to Carson Palmer’s career interception rate of 3%, Bradford’s career high is 2.6%. He doesn’t take chances with the ball, he’ll help control the offense.
  3. He is a good quarterback when on the field... See these highlight videos for proof.

Bradford has some of the best quarterback tape you’ll find. Hopefully, he’s healthy enough for the Arizona Cardinals to make these plays.
