The move:?Former Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford is expected to sign a one-year deal worth $20 million with $15 million guaranteed.?
Analysis:?Arizona is likely going to need a fallback plan, as Bradford played in just two games last year with a knee ailment that coach Mike Zimmer described to NFL Network as “degenerative.” If he is healthy, he could be a serviceable bridge starter. But general manager Steve Keim and first-year coach Steve Wilks need to invest in a young quarterback via the draft.

Taylor, 28, spent the past three seasons with the Bills and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2015. He completed 62.6 percent of his passes and threw for 2,799 yards last season with 14 touchdowns and four interceptions. He was briefly benched in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman before returning to the starting lineup as Buffalo clinched a playoff berth.
“What he did in Buffalo by leading them to the playoffs says a lot,” Jackson said. “This guy walks in the building having more wins than a lot of people in this building. So hopefully a lot of that goodwill will rub off on this organization.”
Clearly the Rams were focused on their defensive backfield this offseason. 4) Philadelphia Eagles Philly clearly prioritized upgrading their defense this offseason. The Eagles made one of the biggest trades of the offseason when they landed Michael Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks for a fifth-round pick and a wide receiver most people have never heard of. The defending Super Bowl champs already had one of the best defensive lines in football, so adding Bennett will make them that more dangerous. Speaking of the defensive line, they also signed Haloti Ngata to a one-year deal.
