The news also comes just hours after reports surfaced that former Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins would sign a deal with the Vikings. The contract also reportedly includes a one-year option for $20 million.
The news comes a day ahead of the Wednesday start to the National Football League free agency signing period. After five seasons plagued with knee injuries and a losing record of 18-30-1, Bradford was shipped to the Philadelphia Eagles. And Bradford himself is seen as a major injury risk after playing in all of two games due to a bum knee last season.
The Vikings didn't see any drop-off from Bradford to Keenum, which made it more likely that they'd move on from the 2010 No. 1 pick. It might not be quite as dire as the one Bradford surprisingly thrived working behind in Minnesota two seasons ago, but it's not that far off.
Meghan Markle would be 'petrified' in terrifying terror training
As Prince Harry's elder brother and the future King, it wouldn't be too unusual for Meghan to be lead to Harry by William. Including Markle was a public acknowledgment by the Queen that she will soon be joining the fold, The Telegraph reported.
Case Keenum, who replaced him and never gave up the starting job, is now set to be usurped by Cousins in Minnesota and subsequently join the Denver Broncos as the quarterback picture becomes clearer around the NFL.
Bridgewater was expected to be Minnesota's quarterback of the future after being taken with the last pick in the first round of the 2014 draft.
The last time Bradford was healthy for almost an entire season, he was one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL. He started 15 games for the Vikings in 2016, completing 71.6-percent of his passes for 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns.
However, amid his impressive showing, Bradford suffered a noncontact injury to his left knee - the same knee in which he has torn his ACL twice.
