National Football League free agency: Bills have 'some interest' in QB Sam Bradford

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Vikings quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos at the official start of free agency on Wednesday afternoon.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, Cousins is set to make $28 million a year for three years, though the deal is not finalized.

The Heisman Trophy victor was drafted by St. Louis with the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

The addition of Bradford is a welcome one for the Cardinals, who have been in need of a quarterback since Carson Palmer announced his retirement in January. Bradford was limited to just two games in 2017 because of a third injury to his left knee.

The Vikings have been coveting Cousins for several weeks and only regarded Keenum, Bradford and Bridgewater as options if a deal for Cousins fell through.

Bradford, 30, has appeared in 80 games - all as a starter - for the St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia and Minnesota.

Because of the knee injury, Bradford wasn't even able to return to practice until January but surely will have to pass a physical, if he hasn't already, for the Cardinals.

The 2008 Heisman Trophy victor who grew up in Oklahoma City threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in a Week 1 win over New Orleans, but suffered a hit that sidelined him for weeks, and a comeback was eventually cut short by knee surgery.

He was one of seven quarterbacks the Vikings have started since drafting Christian Ponder in 2012's first round. In 2016, Bradford signed a two-year, $36 million deal with the Eagles, who traded him to the Vikings six months later.

In other roster moves, the Cardinals announced that they have released running back Adrian Peterson after a half-season in the desert that included a pair of impressive games and a season-ending injury. That's the knee that sidelined Bradford for most of last season.
