Team-wise, that year also marked the most successful season Bradford has ever enjoyed as a starter.
Signing Bradford and Glennon does not preclude Arizona from making QB a high priority in April’s draft. And maybe things will turn around for Bradford in Arizona.
Maybe the Cardinals can manage to salvage another QB off the NFL scrap heap like with Palmer and Kurt Warner earlier this century. Maybe the 30-year-old Bradford can stay healthy long enough to experience success that he still could be capable of achieving. Maybe running back David Johnson can provide enough support to carry the offense.
Mike Zimmer has painted a discouraging picture recently by saying that Bradford’s knee condition is “degenerative.” 16.
Bashaud Breeland, CB* Headed to: Carolina Panthers | Age: 26 News: Panthers plan to sign Breeland as potential starting CB Newton: Breeland first option to replace Daryl Worley The Redskins might not be able, or willing, to squeeze in the market-level contract Breeland has earned as a four-year starter.
They’re already paying fellow cornerback Josh Norman an average of $15 million per year, and they have several young players who could step in.
That could make Breeland one of the more desirable defensive players available.
Along with Jimenez, the White Sox got pitcher Dylan Cease in return for Quintana, and though Cease’s arrival to the majors will probably come later, he has felt swept up in the excitement of a promising rebuild.
“It’s hard not be excited when there’s so much opportunity and so much talent,” Cease told SN.
Cease was a sixth-round pick in the Cubs’ 2014 draft, and he saw firsthand the culmination of an organizational rebuild when the Cubs won the World Series. With the White Sox, he sees something similar in their future.
“It’s really cool to be able to say, ‘Hey, I was a part of that’,” Cease said, both reflecting on his brief tenure in the Cubs organization and looking ahead to what the White Sox hope is to come. “There’s a ton of talent here. I could see it happening.”
