The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly replacing one Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback with another.

The Vikings didn't see any drop-off from Bradford to Keenum, which made it more likely that they'd move on from the 2010 No. 1 pick.

The Cardinals agreed to a one-year, $20 million deal with free agent Sam Bradford on Tuesday, ESPN reported, finding at least their short-term replacement for the retired Carson Palmer. However, he might also have the lowest floor, as injuries have routinely prevented him from staying on the field in his first seven seasons, when he's missed a combined 33 regular-season games. He was 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns, and no picks against the Saints in Week 1 of last season before a knee injury sidelined him for almost the entire season, giving way to the rise of Case Keenum.

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 started 15 games for the Vikings in 2016, completing 71.6-percent of his passes for 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Bradford spent the last two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, but only played in two games. That history suggests the Cardinals will be adding other options at quarterback in free agency and/or the draft to go with Bradford. Earlier he had tweeted that the figures the two sides were exchanging were in the area of $28 million per season.
