The Sam Bradford era in Arizona has come to an end. He was benched last weekend for rookie Josh Rosen.
According to reports he has dropped from starter to third string. Every game he spends inactive saves the Cardinals over $300k.
In one week, Sam Bradford is going from Cardinals' starting QB to No. 3, per source. Being No. 3 means Bradford won't be active today. And not being active means he loses an active roster bonus of $312,500 per game. But going forward, AZ QB depth chart is Rosen, Glennon, Bradford

The Cardinals will have Mike Glennon backing Rosen up for the foreseeable future. The winless Cardinals had to make a change and moving Bradford to third string was part of that change.
