Arizona Cardinals making progress to rework Tyrann Mathieu's contract

They turned down his request last summer for a one-year, $4 million extension.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Vikings quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos at the official start of free agency on Wednesday afternoon. Bradford is known for his strong and accurate arm but he has struggled with injuries.

In Bradford, the Cardinals landed a steady veteran quarterback, though one who has had his share of injury issues. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because contracts can not be made public until Wednesday.

The Vikings didn't see any drop-off from Bradford to Keenum, which made it more likely that they'd move on from the 2010 No. 1 pick. This had immediately pushed the other remaining quarterback-needy teams around the league to find other suitable options on the open market.

There had been no QBs on the Arizona roster since the retirement of Palmer and the departure of free agents Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert.

Peterson's release was not unexpected, with David Johnson returning from injury and expected to fill the primary running back spot. The seven-time All-Pro back played in just six games for Arizona after being acquired from New Orleans.

However, when Bradford is healthy, he's a serviceable starter. It might not be quite as dire as the one Bradford surprisingly thrived working behind in Minnesota two seasons ago, but it's not that far off.

Minnesota is reportedly moving forward with Kirk Cousins as the team's quarterback.

For Arizona, it was nearly any quarterback. The former first-overall pick has already surpassed $114 million in career earnings, including $25 million from the Vikings, before his new deal with the Cardinals, according to OverTheCap.com. The University of Oklahoma product missed the entirety of the 2014 season with a torn ACL. He was traded to Philadelphia in 2015.
