With Teddy Bridgewater now on IR because of the dislocated knee and ACL surgery. Vikings management and coaching staff understand they are knocking on the door as a Championship team in 2016, and needed a signal caller with Teddy’s injury to complete their journey. Now with veteran Bradford at the helm and under the tutelage of Norv Turner, the Vikings have a chance to continue their journey towards winning the division and the NFC Championship.
I was apart of the Rams personnel department and very instrumental in drafting Sam despite him coming off shoulder surgery, I still wanted the man they call “The Big Easy”. We selected Sam Bradford with the first-overall pick in the 2010. He has has thrown for 14,790 yards, 78 TDs, 52 INTs and has a 81.0 passer rating in his 63 career games, all of which are starts. Sam traded and acquired by Philadelphia via trade during the 2015 off-season, were he set Eagles franchise records in completions (346) and completion percentage (65.0%) and finished fourth in team history in passing yardage (3,725) in his single season with the Eagles. Bradford was the Heisman winner and 2010 he had an outstanding rookie season named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and still holds the NFL rookie completion record (354).
A very special player if he remains upright. He has a solid offensive line, Pro Bowl tight-end, one of the best running backs in NFL history and future HOF’er and a nasty defense that can stuff the run, bring pressure with good back-end coverage.
The Minnesota Vikings have acquired QB Sam Bradford via trade from the Philadelphia Eagles pending physical.
