The Minnesota Vikings have found their replacement for Teddy Bridgewater.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Vikings are trading for Sam Bradford of the Philadelphia Eagles. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the Vikings will be sending a first round pick in 2017 and a fourth round pick to the Eagles for Bradford.
The Vikings needed a QB after Bridgewater was lost for the year after injuring his knee in practice. They get that in Bradford, who threw for 3,725 yards and 19 touchdowns to 14 interceptions last year in 14 games for the Eagles.
For his career, the injury-proned former No. 1 pick has 14,790 passing yards and 78 touchdowns to 52 interceptions. The Oklahoma product will be reunited with his college running back, Adrian Peterson, in Minnesota.
Chase Daniel, whom head coach Doug Pederson brought over from Kansas City, is expected to take over as starter in Philadelphia until second overall pick Carson Wentz is ready.
