Just spoke to a Giants source: no interest in bringing in Sam Bradford to New York https://t.co/AfaVhOYs6J— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) November 3, 2018
There is an obvious connection between Bradford and Giants coach Pat Shurmur. Bradford has been in three places — St. Louis, Philadelphia and Minnesota — with Shurmur.
The Cardinals signed Bradford, a 31-year-old nine-year veteran, to a one-year contract that could have earned him up to $20 million. He played three games and earned more than $15 million before being replaced by rookie Josh Rosen.
At the time of that signing, the SB Nation flagship detailed how Bradford has been paid more than $100 million in his career while actually accomplishing very little.
The Giants, of course, have a quarterback question with 37-year-old Eli Manning struggling and fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta, who has never been active for a game and was arrested on Tuesday following a traffic incident, being the only real option.
The Giants may end up with a placeholder at quarterback in 2019 rather than whoever they believe will be their long-term guy. It doesn’t, however, look like Bradford will be that guy.
