Schefter reports the Eagles have gotten “significant compensation” in exchange for Bradford. He said “don’t be surprised if it’s a 1st-round pick.”
Former CSN Philly’er Geoff Mosher says the Eagles have, in fact, landed a first-round pick for Bradford. He also reports the Eagles will get a future fourth-rounder from the Vikings.
As far as timing, it’s interesting to say the least. The Vikings lost their starting quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater for the year earlier this week. Bradford didn’t play in the Eagles’ preseason finale against the Jets on Thursday night.
UPDATE: It’s official.
