TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have addressed their dire need at quarterback, signing Sam Bradford on Friday though they may not be done at the position.

Bradford, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, is known for his strong and accurate arm but he has struggled with injuries.

After being named NFL offensive rookie of the year in 2010, Bradford tore his left ACL in the 2013 and 2014 seasons. He was traded to Philadelphia in 2015.

Bradford signed with Minnesota in 2016 and missed most of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus.

He has appeared in 80 games — all as a starter — for the St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia and Minnesota.

Before agreeing with Bradford, the Cardinals had no QBs on their roster after the retirement of Carson Palmer and the departure of free agents Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert.
