The Eagles are now one quarterback away from playing rookie Carson Wentz, as today the team made a deal with the Minnesota Vikings for the services of QB Sam Bradford.
Sam Bradford, who demanded the Eagles trade him during an extremely weak holdout, ended up getting his wish today after Philadelphia sent him to the Vikings in return for a first-round pick next year and an additional one in 2018.
Bradford with the Eagles has never been a good fit, and after just a year with the team he’s on to his third team, a team that just lost starter Teddy Bridgewater last week to a torn up knee.
For some reason he re-signed with the Eagles in March to a two-year, $35 million deal with $22 million fully guaranteed.
The #Eagles paid $11M to Sam Bradford in exchange for a 1st and a 4th. Vikings get Sam Bradford for $7M this year.

All in all it’s a great move for the Eagles, who likely by mid-season want to see what Wentz can do given he was the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
For Bradford, his short and mostly forgettable stint with the Eagles comes to an end, and now the Eagles have another first round pick to play with for next season.
