The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles for starting quarterbackSam Bradford.

The Vikings will give up a first-round pick in 2017 and an additional pick in 2018.

The Vikings have been searching for a quarterback since Teddy Bridgewater was declared out for the season this week with a serious left knee injury.

Bradford is reunited with tight ends coach Pat Shurmur, who was the offensive coordinator with the Rams when the team chose the quarterback with the first round of the 2010 draft. Shurmur also worked with Bradford as the Eagles' offensive coordinator, and later interim head coach, last season.

The move means Chase Daniel will probably begin the season as the Eagles starting quarterback. The team traded up to draft Carson Wentz with the second pick in the draft, but he played only one preseason game due to a rib injury.
As an Eagles fan this excites me. We get our 1st back, we got rid of someone who we thought was worth no more than a 4th, save $11million in cap space and such. He was going be gone after an year or two anyways as Wentz was built up. All this does is take us from a 8-8 team to maybe 6 wins this season. But we are rebuilding.

Minnesota needed a QB big time after Teddy went down for the year, as they weren't comfy with Shaun Hill for the season. Not that I think Sam Bradford can take them to the promise land either.
