The trade that sent quarterback Sam Bradford from the Rams to the Eagles was surprising when news of it first emerged. It’s now become downright confusing.

The Eagles have announced the deal, which consists of Bradford for Nick Foles plus three draft picks. The Eagles get from St. Louis a 2015 fifth-round pick, and the Rams get from Philadelphia a 2015 fourth-round pick and a 2016 second-round pick.

While the announcement doesn’t mention any other terms, Albert Breer of NFL Media reports that, if Bradford doesn’t start eight games, the Eagles get a fourth-round pick back from the Rams. Likewise, if Bradford is injured, the Eagles get a third-round pick from the Rams. (The trigger for the “injury” condition isn’t known. Possibly, the third-round pick becomes and issue only if Bradford suffers a season ending injury before Week One.)


Many wondered whether the acquisition of Bradford would be a stepping stone toward a move to get in position to draft quarterback Marcus Mariota. The decision to give up a second-round pick in 2016 along with a fourth-round pick in 2015 for Bradford and a fifth-round draft pick arguably cuts against that theory.

Unless, of course, a team like the Bucs at No. 1 or the Titans at No. 2 made it clear to the Eagles that a package including Bradford would be critical to getting a deal done — or, possibly, that the 49ers wanted Bradford in exchange for Colin Kaepernick.

Whatever the outcome, the idea that a guy with a twice-torn ACL will waltz in and become the starting quarterback for the Eagles currently doesn’t make much sense.

We're trying to build an entire roster of players coming off torn ACLs

If you have a player with a torn ACL; we've got the Pro-Bowler you need

Lurie handed the keys to the kingdom off to a 5 year old 'genius.' He's doing nothing but praying that this somehow works.

there may be an other shoe to drop...but what could it be?

bradford is often injured....when he isnt injured he either sucks or is mediocre....add in a $13m price tag and everyone on the planet says "HUH!!??" the fact that you have to add language to the deal that addresses how many games he will play tells you how big a problem it is

the reason WE dont like the trade is cuz we know bradford isnt the answer to anything. are you trying to tell me that SOME team with a top-tier pick isnt aware that bradford sucks and is owed lots of money?

at least Foles wasnt owed a lot of money...he sucked at times but was cheap so it was ok. you trade him for bradford? could kelly have hated Foles that much? i wasnt a fan but damn man....thats extreme!

and now we hope some other team WANTS bradford? some team with a HIGH draft pick? wants him enough to sell a fanbase on "we could have taken a chance on mariota...but we took a chance on Sam Bradford instead?"

Was kind of laughing to myself because I was just saying the other day Foles is the last Reid-era man standing on the offense, and what do you know... every Reid-Era starter is gone
