We know that those attributes

With a quarterback or two finally on the way Danny Shelton Color Rush Jersey , the Arizona Cardinals were acting quickly to shore up their lineup with some early free agency moves.

A person familiar with the situation said quarterback Sam Bradford had agreed to a one-year contract worth up to $20 million, with a second year at the club’s option. The person requested anonymity because the signing had not been announced.

Before Bradford’s acquisition, there were no quarterbacks on the roster for first-year coach Steve Wilks and his offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

The Cardinals apparently will have Bradford’s backup, too. A person familiar with the situation confirmed Mike Glennon had agreed to a two-year, $8 million contract with Arizona. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the signing had not been officially announced.

Meanwhile, ESPN reported that Arizona had reached a two-year deal with ex-Cincinnati offensive tackle Andre Smith. That could clear the way for the release of right tackle Jared Veldheer, which would clear about $6.9 million in cap space.

The day began with the Cardinals announcing they had released one of their most popular players, safety Tyrann Mathieu Kyle Gibson Minnesota Twins Jersey , after the two failed to work out a pay cut.

”I’ve never made a secret that Tyrann has always had a special place in my heart and always will,” Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said in a statement.

”While we all understand this is a part of the business, that certainly doesn’t make it any easier. We all wish Tyrann nothing but continued success in his career and beyond.”

Mathieu was due for $18.75 million of his contract to be guaranteed when the league year began Wednesday afternoon. By cutting him, Arizona saves close to $5 million in cap space.

At least one player is coming back. Free agent inside linebacker Josh Bynes tweeted that he had agreed to a three-year deal to return to Arizona after a strong 2017 season.

”3 more years in AZ!,” he wrote. ”Thank you (at)AZCardinals and my family for all the support! Glad to be back in Red and Black!”

Bradford, 30, is a former Heisman Trophy winner and No. 1 overall pick out of Oklahoma who has a strong, accurate arm but has been besieged by injuries in his pro career.

He has torn the ACL in his left knee twice and Pat Valaika Colorado Rockies Jersey , after earning the starting job in Minnesota, missed most of last season after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

The Cardinals are counting on his injury problems to end.

Glennon, 28, spent four seasons with Tampa Bay, mostly as a backup, before signing a three-year, $45 million contract with Chicago a year ago. His stint as Bears starter lasted just four games before he was replaced by rookie Mitchell Trubisky. Glennon didn’t play the rest of the season.

NFL Network first reported Glennon’s deal, moments after the Bears announced he had been released.

The plan now appears for the Cardinals to draft a quarterback to develop as the long-term solution.

The team was left without any signal caller when Carson Palmer retired and Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert left as free agents http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-chris-herndon-jersey , just as then-coach Bruce Arians announced he was calling it quits.



The Latest on NBA Free Agency (all times EDT):

7:40 p.m.

Zaza Pachulia is signing a one-year, $2.4 million contract with the Detroit Pistons.

A person familiar with the terms confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on Sunday. The person confirmed it on terms of anonymity because the Pistons had not announced the signing.

Pachulia was with the Golden State Warriors in each of the last two seasons, winning championships both years and starting 127 of a possible 164 regular-season games. Detroit becomes the sixth team for the 34-year-old center, a career 6.9-point-per-game scorer. The Pistons waived center Eric Moreland earlier Sunday, presumably the precursor to the Pachulia signing.

Brook Lopez has agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Milwaukee Bucks.

A person familiar with the negotiations confirmed the terms to The Associated Press on Sunday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced by the Bucks.

The 30-year-old Lopez is going into his 11th NBA season. He averaged 13 points per game last season for the Los Angeles Lakers, and has averaged 17.9 points over his career.

Zach LaVine is staying with the Chicago Bulls, after the team matched a four-year http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-armani-watts-jersey , $80 million offer sheet that he got from the Sacramento Kings.

The Bulls made the announcement Sunday, two days after the Kings and LaVine agreed to the offer terms. LaVine was a restricted free agent, which meant the Bulls had right of first refusal. It was expected that the Bulls would match, and now they have.

LaVine has missed 91 of a possible 162 games over the past two seasons because of injuries, and the Bulls will have some language in this contract protecting them if his surgically repaired left knee remains problematic. He appeared in only 24 games for the Bulls last season, averaging 16.7 points on 38 percent shooting.

”Zach showed a relentless work ethic in rehabbing his ACL injury to return to the court, and he has a visible passion for the game of basketball,” Bulls vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said.

”We know that those attributes http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-antonio-callaway-jersey , along with his honed skills, will make him an impact player in this league for years to come. We’re thrilled to keep Zach on this Bulls team moving forward.”

The Bulls acquired LaVine a year ago, as part of the trade that sent Jimmy Butler from Chicago to Minnesota.

”We’re excited now that we get to keep him,” Paxson said.
