PHILADELPHIA (KMOX/AP)- The University of Oklahoma quarterback who was once drafted first overall by the St. Louis Rams will now be called on to save the season of the Minnesota Vikings.
The Philadelphia Eagles traded Sam Bradford to the Vikings on Saturday for a pair of draft picks.
Bradford replaces Teddy Bridgewater, who went down for the season after suffering a gruesome knee injury this week. The Eagles receive a first-round pick in 2017 and a fourth-round pick in 2018.
Bradford’s departure means backup Chase Daniel (University of Missouri) will start the season as Philadelphia’s No. 1 quarterback. Carson Wentz, who was selected with the No. 2 overall pick, missed the last three preseason games after breaking his ribs.
