Report: Eagles Trade Nick Foles To Rams For Sam Bradford

The Eagles are close to getting themselves themselves another quarterback, acquiring Sam Bradford from the Rams in exchange for Nick Foles, with unspecified draft picks changing hands, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Update: Whole lotta confusion on who's getting what draft picks. We'll update when it clears up.


This is a function of the Eagles currently having a ton of cap space, and Bradford being the last No. 1 pick under the old rookie-deal scheme. Bradford has one year left on his six-year, $76 million rookie deal, and as of now would cost $16.5 million against the cap. He'll probably restructure, but wasn't willing to take a pay cut in St. Louis.

Bradford has been serviceable when he hasn't been hurt, which is rarely. Is he better than Nick Foles? Does this mean the Eagles won't go after Marcus Mariota? Should we stop assuming Chip Kelly knows what he's doing?
