Philadelphia Eagles Trade Sam Bradford to Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings had been shopping for a quarterback since projected starter Teddy Bridgewater tore his ACL and dislocated his knee in a non-contact drill last week.
Minnesota will be Bradford’s third NFL team since being drafted first overall by the St. Louis Rams in the 2010 NFL Draft. He was the starter for the Eagles during the 2015 season. The team went 6-10 with him under center.
Bradford will also be reunited with one of his old teammates. He played with running back Adrian Peterson at the University of Oklahoma.
Bradford has been an injury prone quarterback throughout his career. He has torn both of his ACLs since 2010. The second ACL tear kept him out the entire 2014 season. He suffered the injury during a Rams preseason game against the Browns.
Sam Bradford, quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, drops back to pass during their game at MetLife Stadium on January 3, 2016 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
