Eagles won't get draft picks from St. Louis Rams if they trade Sam Bradford

When the Philadelphia Eagles completed a trade for Sam Bradford last month, it took several hours for the exact details to be released to the public. That's because it was a complicated trade with many pieces and conditions. When it was all said and done, it looked like this, via the team itself.

EAGLES GET: QB Sam Bradford, 2015 5th round pick, *conditional 2016 pick*

RAMS GET: QB Nick Foles, 2015 4th round pick, 2016 2nd round pick

The part we're highlighting today is that conditional 2016 pick since there are rumors that Bradford could be traded in order to help the Eagles land Marcus Mariota.

Assuming the Eagles DON'T land Mariota and Bradford stays, the Eagles get a 2016 3rd round pick if Bradford plays 0% of the snaps. If Bradford hits the field but plays less than 50% of the snaps, the Eagles get a 2016 4th in return.

But what happens if Bradford is traded? According to Ashley Fox, the Eagles will get NO picks in return from the Rams. This isn't surprising, but it's interesting to see the Rams wanted this kind of protection knowing that Philly might trade Bradford yet again.

Just something to keep in mind if a deal goes down.
