Vikings trade for QB Sam Bradford

MINNEAPOLIS - The Vikings are getting a new quarterback. The team traded for Philadelphia Eagles' QB Sam Bradford replacing a hole on the roster left by Teddy Bridgewater's season-ending injury. 

The Vikings gave up a first-round pick in 2017 and an additional pick in 2018 for the trade.

Reports say talks between the Eagles and the Vikings came to fruition late Friday night. The deal was finalized this morning, according to USA Today's Tom Pelissero. 

Bradford and Vikings RB Adrian Peterson both played for Oklahoma and will be reunited on the field. 

A Heisman Tropher winner in 2008, Bradford was acquired by the Eagles in a trade during the 2015 offseason.  

Bradford's departure means backup Chase Daniel 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.
