With Sam Bradford playing in all 549 offensive snaps this season, Rams no longer have to give Eagles 4th-round pick as part of QB trade.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 9, 2015
When the Eagles acquired the oft-injured Bradford in March, part of the deal involved a conditional Rams draft pick that served as injury protection. If Bradford played 0% of Philadelphia's offensive snaps, the Eagles would have received the Rams' third round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. If Bradford plays less than 50% of the snaps, St. Louis would have had to surrender their fourth round selection to the Eagles. But now none of those conditions are true. Bradford has played ever single one of Philadelphia's snaps through the first eight games of the season.
The Bradford trade obviously hasn't worked so well for the Eagles so far. Heading into Week 9, Bradford ranked near the bottom of the league in most key passing stats.
Sam Bradford ranks 23rd in comp%, 33rd in y/a, 32nd in passer rating, 32nd in QBR, 26th in DYAR, 24th in DVOA, 19th by PFF grade.— Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) November 2, 2015
The good news for the Eagles is that Bradford is coming off his best game of the season in a Sunday Night Football victory over the Dallas Cowboys. If Bradford can continue to look strong down the stretch, the Eagles certainly won't mind the fact they won't receive a draft pick back from St. Louis.
Here's a recap of the Philadelphia's 2016 NFL Draft picks.
