Vikes Acquire Bradford from Philly

The Minnesota Vikings traded a 2017 first round pick and a conditional 2018 fourth round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for quarterback Sam Bradford, per ESPN Insider Adam Schefter.

This move occurred just a few days after Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater dislocated his knee and tore his ACL. The Vikings clearly have high hopes for this season, and with running back Adrian Peterson and a strong defense, there’s no reason Minnesota can’t return to the playoffs.

Bradford is under contract through the 2017 season, which gives Bridgewater a lot of time to recover from his injury. In 2015, Bradford went 7-7 as a starter. He totaled 346 completions on 532 attempts (65% completion rate), 3725 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions.
