Storyline of the week
Bradford is as expected: Cardinals coach Steve Wilks says free agent QB Sam Bradford has been as advertised. “I think Sam has looked well,” Wilks said. “I think he’s executed and performed exactly how we thought he would. He does a great job of getting the offense in the right position based off the defensive look. I think his accuracy is on point. He can throw guys open.” he went 6-for-6 for 61 yards vs. the Saints in Week 2 and played two series vs. Dallas. His preseason work is complete. “After having the injury last year and not playing a ton of football, just feeling bodies in the pocket, feeling people around my legs and being able to move around, that’s really what I’m looking to get out of it,” he said of the preseason.
The Cardinals’ second-round pick, Christian Kirk, is beginning to separate himself from the pack at wide receiver. He is putting himself in the mix as the team’s No. 2 receiver. Coaches and teammates have gushed about his work ethic.
