Eagles Sends QB Sam Bradford To The Desparate Minnesota Vikings For A 1st Round Pick!
The Eagles traded Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday in ablockbuster deal that helps the team's long-term outlook but could change their outlook for the season. It will also likely accelerate the timetable for Carson Wentz.
The Eagles received a 2017 first-round pick and a 2018 fourth-round pick. With the draft in Philadelphia, the team found a way to acquire a first-rounder.
It's a major haul for the Vikings to surrender, but they have Super Bowl aspirations and lost quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a season-ending knee injury this week. The Vikings' staff includes Pat Shurmur, who coached Bradford in St. Louis and Philadelphia.
