The Arizona Cardinals have officially signed quarterback Sam Bradford to a two-year deal, the team announced Friday.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Two other teams were interested in signing Bradford, but he decided to join Arizona for less money, 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro reports.

The contract is reportedly a one-year, $20 million deal with $15 million guaranteed with a one-year option for 2019 for $20 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Bradford, 30, becomes the only quarterback on Arizona’s roster after signing on the dotted line. The former first-overall pick by the Rams in 2010 started in Week 1 for Minnesota in 2017, completing 27-of-32 pass attempts for three touchdowns and no interceptions. He only appeared in one more game for the remainder of the season, missing time due to injury as Case Keenum took over the signal-calling duties.

For his career, Bradford has an 85.1 passer rating and 101-57 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He’s appeared in 80 games — all starts — with the Rams, Eagles and Vikings. The University of Oklahoma product missed the entirety of the 2014 season with a torn ACL. Only twice in his eight NFL seasons has he played all 16 games.

His last full season, 2016, Bradford started 15 games and posted a league-leading 71.6 completion percentage to go with his 99.3 passer rating, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions.
