Car­di­nals re­lease QB Brad­ford

San Francisco Chronicle - Late Edition (Sunday) - - PAGE 2 -

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.
