Sam bradford dating 2016
Sam Bradford is back with the Eagles and passing the buck on his ill-fated trade demand.
The veteran quarterback told reporters in Philadelphia on Tuesday that his high-powered agent, Tom Condon, was the one who thought it was a good idea to ask the Eagles to deal him after they traded up to the No.
Left tackle Matt Kalil missed all but two games, right tackle Andre Smith sat out all but four, and their replacements struggled.
Running back Adrian Peterson also couldn't get going before missing the final 13 games of the year, and his replacements—mainly Jerick Mc Kinnon and Matt Asiata—were astonishingly ineffective.
He completed eight passes of 20-plus yards and was 8-of-9 on throws that traveled 15 yards or more, out-dueling Brees for four quarters in a 29-19 victory.
And those numbers would have looked even better had two of his five incomplete passes not been dropped.
On the day where the roster has to be trimmed down to 53 players, the Eagles made a blockbuster trade, sending quarterback Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings.
In exchange, the Eagles received a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and a fourth-round pick in 2018 NFL Draft.
The offensive line was a mess in 2016, and it was about as balanced as a drunk sheep on ice skates.
Bradford couldn't sustain that, but it's not as though he was a liability the rest of the year.
The guy finished the season with the highest qualified completion percentage in NFL history (71.6), but he couldn't overcome a lack of support from a bad, banged-up offensive line and a nonexistent running game.
Louis Rams in 2010, those who believed Bradford was worthy of that selection figured he'd put together dozens of performances like the one he had Monday night.
Instead, it took seven years for Bradford to give us a truly special outing.
