Vikings Aquire QB Sam Bradford in Trade with Eagles
The Minnesota Vikings have found a QB to fill the void left by Teddy Bridgewater's season ending knee injury last week. Minnesota has pulled off a blockbuster trade for Philadelphia quarterback Sam Bradford, in exchange for a first-round pick in 2017, along with a 4th round pick in 2018.
Sam Bradford was the overall #1 pick by the St. Louis Rams in the 2010, after becoming just the second sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. Bradford set the record for most completions by a rookie in NFL history in 2010, which helped earn him the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
Sam Bradford and Adrian Peterson played together at the University of Oklahoma.
Bradford has thrown for 14,790 yards, 78 TDs, 52 INTs and has a 81.0 passer rating in his 63 career NFL games a starter.
Last season Bradford set the Eagle's single-season pass completion record (346), and the single-season completion percentage record (65.0%) -- but has since expressed a desire to leave Philadelphia.
Wish granted. Welcome to Minnesota Sam!
