Bradford’s Impact

By now you have probably learned that the Vikings have traded for QB Sam Bradford, previously of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Bradford won the Heisman at the University of Oklahoma in 2008, and was later drafted first overall by the Rams in 2010. Bradford has missed 33 games in his career, including the entire 2014 season, due to injury (ESPN).

With the reports of the Vikings giving up a 2017 first round pick and a conditional 4th round pick for the following year, fans are a bit skeptical of the front office decision making. The move was necessary given the unfortunate injury sustained by Teddy Bridgewater last week, even though the team gave up what seems like a lot for a quarterback with a career of 25-37-1 (Footballdb.com). However, this may be the best team that Bradford has played for in his career, so there is some upside for him there. If all goes well, Bradford can lead the Vikings to another NFC North title.
