Sam Bradford is returning to the NFC West

The Vikings plan to sign former Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins to a three-year fully guaranteed contract, according to a Tuesday morning report from Schefter.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Bills are interested Sam Bradford and Case Keenum, two free-agent quarterbacks of the Minnesota Vikings.

Bradford, 30, began the 2017 season as the Vikings quarterback, but a knee injury felled him after Week 1, and he didn't start another game until Week 5.

He'll become the Cardinals' presumed starter as early as Wednesday since they don't now have any quarterbacks under contract. 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. Still available are AJ McCarron, Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown, who quarterbacked the Jets last season. Mike Zimmer described Bradford's knee issue as "degenerative" earlier this month. That tear of his ACL and other structural damage kept Bridgewater out almost the whole 2017 season as well. In his first season with the Vikings, passed for 3,877 yards, 20 touchdowns, and just five interceptions.

Bradford has played with three different organizations (St. Louis, Philadelphia, Minnesota) and has thrown 101 touchdowns and 57 interceptions during his eight-year National Football League career after starring at the University of Oklahoma. He returned in Week 15, throwing his only two passes of the season. He set career-highs in completions, passing yards and touchdowns.
