Eagles made substantial offer for No.1 pick-- Fri May 1 9:00 am --
QB Sam Bradford and 1st pick in 2016 were offered
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Eagles offered the following to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the first pick in the draft: the 20th pick in this year’s draft; Philly’s first-round pick in 2016; quarterback Sam Bradford; and another player on the roster.(ProFootballTalk)
FF Today's Take:Chip Kelly's interest in Marcus Mariota was widely reported and speculated on over the last couple months and it's likely a similar package was offered to the Titans for the No.2 pick. The Eagles now have to find a way to kiss and makeup with Sam Bradford who's likely going to be their quarterback in 2015.
Rams and Eagles swap quarterbacks-- Tue Mar 10 4:40 pm --
Sam Bradford and Nick Foles
A high-ranking Rams official has confirmed an ESPN report that quarterback Sam Bradford is in the process of being traded to Philadelphia for Eagles quarterback Nick Foles. There are conflicting reports on draft pick compensation.
If the trade is finalized, the Rams will save just under $13 million in base salary, which Bradford was scheduled to receive this year.
Foles is due to make $1.522 million in 2015, this last year of his contract.
FF Today's Take:Chip Kelly is certainly fun for the NFL. One would have to think that Kelly isn't done at the quarterback position. He's been linked to rookie Marcus Mariota in the upcoming draft and it's hard to imagine the Eagles heading into the season with Bradford as their QB1 and Mark Sanchez as their QB2. Foles is likely to be the Rams Week 1 starter but his fantasy stock has taken a hit with this move to St. Louis.
