Just kidding about the title. I’m not really into drugs. I just think a lot of moves in the NFL only make sense if you assume that the decision makers involved were on drugs at the time (no offense Jim Irsay).
Drugs are the only explanation I can come up with for the Sam Bradford to Philly trade. Let me get the caveats out of the way.
|Eagles Get||Rams Get|
|Sam Bradford||Nick Foles|
|Roughly $13MM Bradford contract||Roughly $1.3MM contract|
|2015 5th round pick||2015 4th round pick|
|–||2016 2nd round pick|
|*2016 4th round pick if Bradford plays fewer than 50% of snaps; 2016 3rd round pick if Bradford doesn’t play at all||–|
