Vikings acquire QB Sam Bradford in trade with Eagles

USA Today- The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles for starting quarterback Sam Bradford.

The Vikings will give up a first-round pick in 2017 and an additional pick in 2018, a person familiar with the trade told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

The Vikings have been searching for a quarterback since Teddy Bridgewater was declared out for the season this week with a serious left knee injury.

Bradford is reunited with Vikings tight end coach Pat Shurmur, who was the offensive coordinator with the Rams when the team chose the quarterback with the first round of the 2010 draft.

The move means Chase Daniel will probably begin the season as the Eagles starting quarterback. The team traded up to draft Carson Wentz with the second pick in the draft, but he played only one preseason game due to a rib injury.
