Vikings get QB Sam Bradford from Eagles in expensive trade

The Minnesota Vikings have addressed their quarterback dilemma by trading for former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford.

But to get Bradford, Minnesota had to give up a lot. The Eagles have confirmed that they received a 2017 first-round pick and a 2018 fourth-round pick for him.

Bradford started 14 games for the Eagles last season, finishing with 3,725 yards, 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while completing 65 percent of his passes.

The 28-year-old missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL – the second torn ACL of his career. Prior to that he spent four years with the St. Louis Rams. He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 Draft.

Bradford wanted Philadelphia to trade him after the Eagles used the No. 2 pick in this year's draft to take former North Dakota State University quarterback Carson Wentz.

Adrian Peterson, who is in his hometown of Houston to watch his Oklahoma Sooners open the college football season today, told a reporter that he's "pumped" by the news.
