The Arizona Cardinals released quarterback Sam Bradford on Saturday.
Bradford signed with Arizona in march and received a $10 million signing bonus, about $2.5 million in base salary and another $1 million in playing-time bonuses totaling out to $13.5 million.
Bradford started the Cardinals’ first three games but was benched in favor of rookie Josh Rosen in the 4th quarter of the Week 3 defeat to the Chicago Bears.
Any team that would dare to claim Bradford off waivers would be forced to inherit the 30-year old’s $2.5 million base salary, a bonus of $312,500 for every game he is active and a potential salary of $20 million for 2019, which is a team option.
This isn’t the first time Bradford has finessed a team, he’s been doing it his entire career:
