The Arizona Cardinals cut quarterback Sam Bradford on Saturday afternoon, just months after signing as a free agent with the club back in March. As fans of the Buffalo Bills, we are contractually obligated to consider any big name quarterback that is released as a potential bridge/stopgap/veteran presence for the team’s lowly quarterback situation.

Just in case you have been out of the loop for the past few weeks, the Bills could use some help at quarterback. Josh Allen is still out with an arm injury, and no timetable has been provided for his return. Derek Anderson is in the concussion protocol after unsespectedly being named the starter against the New England Patriots. Nathan Peterman is starting against the Chicago Bears, and Matt Barkley will serve as his back-up after signing earlier this week. Now that everyone is up to speed, you can understand why fans may be interested in Bradford.

Many thought Bradford would have been an option for the Bills during the 2018 offseason, as a veteran quarterback that could serve as a bridge quarterback for a rookie that would be drafted. Some rumors connected Bradford with the Bills, but he ultimately signed with the Cardinals to fill a similar role. Bradford was benched midway through Week 3 in favor of Josh Rosen, and now finds himself available through waivers this week.

With Bradford now available, do you think this is someone the Bills should sign to help at quarterback? It would cost $2.35 million plus $312,500 for every game he is active, up to a total of $4.85 million.

In the waiver wire order, Buffalo stands a good chance of adding Bradford if they want him. The New York Giants already have their veteran QB and the Cardinals just released him. That leaves the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers as the only teams currently ahead of the Bills in the waiver order.
