Cardinals release QB Bradford
The Arizona Cardinals released quarterback Sam Bradford on Saturday.
Bradford, whose eight NFL seasons have been plagued by injuries, signed a one-year, $20 million contract — with $15 million guaranteed — in the offseason.
Bradford, who completed 50 of 80 passes for 400 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions this season, was benched during a Week 3 loss to the Bears in favor of rookie Josh Rosen.
Bradford, a former No. 1 overall pick with has 83 career NFL starts, had been inactive for every game since.
Long out: The Bears placed right guard Kyle Long on injured reserve because of a tendon injury in his right foot. The move means the three-time Pro Bowler will be out for at least eight weeks.
Edelman fined: The NFL fined Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman $26,739 for an unnecessary roughness penalty in a win over the Bills on Monday night.
