“So dumb. Sam Bradford has been paid more for nothing than anyone in history of NFL,” Ravens safety Eric Weddle says.

He has a point:
As the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft, before the current rookie wage scale was implemented, Bradford got a six-year, $78 million deal.
In 2016, Bradford signed a two-year, $36 million deal with the Eagles, who traded him to the Vikings six months later.
And now Bradford gets another $20 million this year with the Cardinals.
That’s a lot of money for a quarterback who has never been to a Pro Bowl, never led a team to the playoffs and never had a 4,000-yard season, or a 25-touchdown season.
But Bradford keeps persuading teams to pay him. Maybe some day he’ll live up to that pay.
