New Cardinals quarterback Sam Bradford was asked about Vikings coach Mike Zimmer calling Bradford's knee degenerative: “I'm not even sure what that means to be honest. I mean, look, obviously there's some wear and tear on my knee. I've been through a lot with it. All I can tell you is how I feel right now and really kind of where it's gone since I had the procedure in November and it's done nothing but get better. And I feel good at the moment. That's really all I can tell you about it right now.”
