Report: Minnesota Vikings Trading For Philadelphia Eagles' Sam Bradford

The Minnesota Vikings have found a quarterback to replace Teddy Bridgewater. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, they have traded for the Philadelphia Eagles' Sam Bradford.

The Minnesota Vikings have traded for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford, per multiple reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the news.

According to USA TODAY's Tom Pelissero and NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the compensation for Bradford is significant: two draft picks, including a first-rounder.

This trade should tell us two things from the Vikings' perspective. The first one is that they believe they are built to win this year, and Bradford gives them the chance to do so. The second thing is that they need insurance in case Teddy Bridgewater never returns to form after his gruesome injury.

As for Philly? Well, the Chase Daniel (and soon-to-be Carson Wentz) Era is upon us. The Eagles know they're probably punting on this season as a developmental year, so why not eliminate some of the QB clutter? Also, now that Philly has a first-round pick in 2017, when the draft is in the City of Brotherly Love, we're giddy about the booing Eagles fans will do.
