Vikings trade for Eagles QB Sam Bradford

Earlier this week, it was reported that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater tore his ACL and would be out for the 2016 season. Because of this, the team knew they needed a quarterback and they have just gotten a pretty talented one in Sam Bradford.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Ed Werder reported that the Philadelphia Eagles would be sending Bradford to the Vikings for a 2017 first-round pick, which they lost out on after moving up to the second overall pick in the 2016 draft, and an additional 2018 pick.

This is Bradford’s third new team in the last three years after being traded from the St. Louis Rams to the Eagles ahead of the 2015 season. He started 14 games and threw for 3,725 yards and 19 touchdowns and should be just as good for the Vikings this year.

The Vikings open the season on the road against the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 11.
