Vikings Make Deal with Eagles for QB Sam Bradford for Two Picks

Sam Bradford

The Vikings may have lost quarterback Teddy Bridgewater last week, but clearly they have not given up on the season, as today the team found a new starting quarterback in former Rams and Eagles QB Sam Bradford.

Here’s the breakdown for the deal according to Adam Caplan.

In return, the Eagles will receive the Vikings’ first-round draft pick in 2017 as well as a conditional fourth-rounder in 2018.

Bradford re-signed with the Eagles in March to a two-year, $35 million deal with $22 million fully guaranteed.

The Eagles would be responsible for Bradford’s $11 million signing bonus. ProFootballTalk.com reported earlier this year that $5.5 million of the $11 million signing bonus was due March 18 and the rest of the bonus was due on or before Sept. 1. The rest of his contract — $20 million in base salaries and $4 million March 2017 roster bonus — would go to the Vikings.

Bradford was not a good fit for the Eagles, but hopefully due to his experience with Vikings tight ends coach Pat Shurmer, who was his OC in Philly, it will help with the transition to the Vikings offense.

There’s also this to ponder when it comes to the 2017 season.

No matter how you look at it, Bradford is the best QB as it stands today on the Vikings roster, and he will be their starter moving forward.

    This is total insanity!! It’s like the Vikings paid full price for a 1995 Cadillac plus some! Think offensive line… NOT for next year. When Bradford goes down and out in the first game the monumental stupidity of this trade will be apparent!! Maybe Herschel can come out of retirement too. 🙁
