Eagles Draft Picks: Philadelphia won't receive Rams' third round pick from Sam Bradford trade

Here's a quick update on the terms of the Sam Bradford trade.

When the Philadelphia Eagles traded for Sam Bradford earlier this offseason, the Birds also received a conditional draft pick from the St. Louis Rams. Now's a good time to revisit that pick considering one of the conditions has expired.

Due to Bradford suiting up and playing against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night, the Eagles can no longer receive the Rams' 2016 third round pick. The Eagles are obviously OK with this. It seems safe to assume they would rather have Bradford healthy than the draft pick.

The only condition left on the pick involves Bradford's playing time for the rest of the 2015 season. If Bradford plays less than 50% of Philadelphia's offensive snaps for the rest of this year, the Eagles will receive a 2016 fourth round pick from St. Louis. If Bradford plays 50% or more of the snaps, the Eagles will receive no pick at all.

Moving forward, the Eagles will hope Bradford can stay healthy. The quarterback reportedly might have an ankle issue but both him and Chip Kelly insist he's fine.

Assuming Bradford stays healthy and the Rams don't owe the Eagles their pick, Philadelphia is likely set to have nine selections in the 2016 NFL Draft.
