Eagles give up 2016 second-rounder for Bradford, too

AP

The trade that sent quarterback Sam Bradford from the Rams to the Eagles was surprising when news of it first emerged.  It’s now become downright confusing.

The Eagles have announced the deal, which consists of Bradford for Nick Foles plus three draft picks.  The Eagles get from St. Louis a 2015 fifth-round pick, and the Rams get from Philadelphia a 2015 fourth-round pick and a 2016 second-round pick.

While the announcement doesn’t mention any other terms, Albert Breer of NFL Media reports that, if Bradford doesn’t start eight games, the Eagles get a fourth-round pick back from the Rams.  Likewise, if Bradford is injured, the Eagles get a third-round pick from the Rams.  (The trigger for the “injury” condition isn’t known.  Possibly, the third-round pick becomes and issue only if Bradford suffers a season ending injury before Week One.)

Many wondered whether the acquisition of Bradford would be a stepping stone toward a move to get in position to draft quarterback Marcus Mariota.  The decision to give up a second-round pick in 2016 along with a fourth-round pick in 2015 for Bradford and a fifth-round draft pick arguably cuts against that theory.

Unless, of course, a team like the Bucs at No. 1 or the Titans at No. 2 made it clear to the Eagles that a package including Bradford would be critical to getting a deal done — or, possibly, that the 49ers wanted Bradford in exchange for Colin Kaepernick.

Whatever the outcome, the idea that a guy with a twice-torn ACL will waltz in and become the starting quarterback for the Eagles currently doesn’t make much sense.

  1. Honestly this deal only made sense if the Rams were the only ones sending picks. What a dumpster-fire Chip Kelly’s moves have been this past week.

  2. Totally agree. The league should not allow lopsided trades like this to happen… and i’m not a fan of either team, but trades like this kill the spirit of fairness in the league. Good job Goodell!

  3. i dont understand this at all. If i had to pick between the two, I’d take Foles every time. Why they’d take the lesser QB and give up higher draft picks is beyond me (aka, why would the bucs rather have bradford..at least strongly enough to force the eagles to make this move)

    *brain explodes*

  4. One thing is for certain: for better or worse, you cannot say that Chip Kelly isn’t making his mark on this team.

  5. Eagles Fans – Let me get this correct. Over the last two years the Eagles have let Jackson, McCoy, Mclain and now Foles go for a Linebacker coming off ACL surgery and a QB coming off his second ACL, and let’s not forget the Eagles have the pleasure of paying a damaged QB 13 million.

    Somebody please take the keys away from Kelly!!!!!!!

  6. It should have been Bradford and a 2nd round pick for Foles and a 4th, the eagles just chewed up over 10mil in cap room, that’s good for two or three starters. I can’t see how the Bucs or Titans would rather Bradford over foles either!

  7. This is awful.

    Did Chip Kelly watch Draft Day?

    I don’t want Mariota. I certainly don’t want Kaepernick.

    I have been an Eagles fan since 1980 when I was 7, but I think it might be time to find a new team.

  8. Commish Goodell (on Thursday, April 30, 2015, Chicago, Illinois): “With the 2nd Pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select… MARCUS MARIOTA, quarterback, Oregon!” (via Sam Bradford to the Titans, who hold the No.2 Pick, overall, along with Riley Cooper and a few other draft picks). It’s a no-brainer, peeps!

  9. I gotta give it to chip. Unconventional and a breath of fresh air to say the least. I find it had to believe this is just a small piece of the puzzle and chip will continue wheelin and dealin.

  10. Factor in the difference in salaries and this is a HUGE win for the Rams (it would have been even if the salaries were the same)…Chip Kelly just jumped the shark tank…

  11. Absolutely terrible trade. I’ve watched almost every game of Bradford’s career. He’s legitimately awful. People who think he’s good or that his team is holding him back simply don’t watch him play very much. He is SLOW at reading defenses, has inaccurate ball placement, and his bad pocket presence. Arm strength isn’t great either.

  12. Not sure how bradford at 14 mil is a better trade piece than foles at 800000. Plus the draft picks are just moronic. The grand wizard is really crippling this eagles team. Hysterical.

  13. This is like one of those fantasy trades between a guys team and the dummy team his girlfriend “manages”.

  14. Little do people realize that chip Kelly is the new star in this TERMINATOR movie.
    Move over Arnold this Chip kelly is the new T69 CYBORG that was sent from the Future to destroy the Eagles franchise REAL GOOD.

    And i must confess I am liking this version better by the minute than the original movie.

  15. Are the Eagles and Rams switching spots in the first round? If so, this trade would make a lot more sense. But why would Chip give up Foles for Bradford when Bradford carries that much cap space? They’ve could’ve re-signed Maclin with that money or kept Shady

  16. If this “Trade Bait” doesn’t work the Eagles are going to have to dump Bradford at a discount because he doesn’t fit the system

  17. Chip is going back to coach college next year while the Eagles look to rebuild over the next 10 years.

  18. I guess Chip Kelly has no interest in making the playoffs this season. Tearing it all down for a possible trade for Mariota doesn’t seem that intelligent to me. He obviously thinks that Bradford has more trade up value then Foles had.

    Dude, not even a Madden AI team would make that trade. What “few other draft picks”? Unless Philly pulls a Ditka-for-Williams and trades all their picks, Tennessee isn’t taking a deal. And Chip even included a 2016 2nd rounder for Bradford so even that is out.

  20. “jwetz83 says: Mar 10, 2015 7:41 PM

    With Chip It’s not a black or white thing. It’s not an Oregon thing.

    It’s have you torn your ACL thing”

    OMG!!!! I know someone who has torn their ACL……

    PETERSON!

  21. Rams are playing chess with the NFCE and the Skins and Eagles (now) are playing…not even checkers…..more like war

  22. Basically the second round pick was used to ensure swapping first round picks this year. They only have to move up from 10 now to get Mariota. If they cut Bradford after drafting Mariota they will get back a fourth or third round pick from the Rams.

  23. Why the HELL do Eagles fans think the Titans would trade their #2 pick for any combination with Bradford?? Foles would have been much more sensible sensible trade bait, and he doesn’t come with the horrible contract and injury questions of Bradford. You’re all just delusional, desperately trying to convince yourselves there’s some kind of method to this madness.

  24. This is what happens when you give the keys to the team to someone who thinks he’s smarter than anyone else in the league when in reality he’s the league idiot. It’s obvious that his ego has got the best of him.
    In Chip you trust…LOL!

  25. This is bizarre. Not stupid (although it certainly could be looked upon that way for Philadelphia), not interesting, not intriguing.

    Bizarre. This trade makes me feel like I’ve entered another dimension, where the rules of player value I’ve known all my life no longer apply.

  26. Chip must be hoping Bradford will bring Demarco Murray to reunite the Sooner teammates that ran uptempo in college. Except Bradford is so damaged he can’t go half tempo.

  27. Lol..Mariota will be in Tennessee ! Ain’t no way in hell the eagles get to even sniff him.. Unless coach Whiz smoken the samething Chip is..

  28. This is your captain speaking (Chip aboard the Titanic). We are talking a little water in and the life preserves are just precautionary, stay calm.

  29. As a Rams fan I must say, Thank the Lord for Chip Kelly. I would have given a 2nd rounder to be rid of that contract, so to make out like thieves is a great start to the season.

  30. I was watching with interest how Chip is reshaping this team, I think I get the other moves, but this one is confusing.

    He has a lot more faith in Bradford than I do.

  31. On a positive note all Chip needs is Mariota, an Indian and an Asian and the Eagles can check all the boxes

    Black players- check
    White players- check
    Native American- Bradford- check
    Pacific Islander- Mariota?
    Asian- ??
    Indian- ??

    Take that Stephen A.

    Seriously, as an Eagles fan, this is a disgrace. Kelly is single-handedly destroying this franchise.

  32. Does even Belichick have the kind of unchecked power that Chip does?

    There’s a reason we have checks and balances. Just look at what happens when we don’t have them.

  33. Someday over the next year Jeffy will wake up and come to his senses and fire Chip and then put Howie back in control of personnel and then hire a new coach to pick up the pieces and start all over again while Chip will head back to college.

  34. can people stop comparing our Philadelphia Eagles to the Washington Redskins in regards to trades.

    There is a major difference. The difference being Eagle fans know our Coach is flying the plane into the mountain. Redskins fans didn’t see it til it was too late.

    Thank you.

  36. “Whatever the outcome, the idea that a guy with a twice-torn ACL will waltz in and become the starting quarterback for the Eagles currently doesn’t make much sense.”

    Better:

    Whatever the outcome, it doesn’t make much sense to think that a guy with a twice-torn ACL will waltz in and become the starting quarterback.

  37. I think we don’t understand it bc we look at it from the perspective of acquiring Bradford to be our future qb, but, I think it’s the wrong perspective: this is more about dumping Foles bc I bet Foles became the next listed as a malcontent.

    No one ever thinks of him, put yourself in his position: the loyal soldier who does everything right and is left twisting in the wind at every point. I bet he played hardball, said settle my situation or I’ll sit out bc since I don’t make the bigger money so I’m not losing anything. Give me an extension or cut me. Make me the starter or cut me, I’ll find a job.

    THAT’s what I think the Sanchez trade was about: Foles became malcontent leading up to Sanchez and they had to grab something before they let him go so they threw money at Sanchez while he was out knocking on doors.

    THAT’s what Bradford is about, I bet. Getting an answer at qb for now even if it’s not ideal but when they dump Foles they have no qb at all, so they snatched up Sanchez and Bradford to at least have a momentary answer even if not exactly the best answer but they can’t have nothing.

  38. everybody would always rip me for my comments criticizing the foolish nonsense that makes Chip Kelley .Everybody’s response would be “in Chip we trust” and I would say why what has he done? I think at this moment everyone has come to the conclusion I came to last year that he is highly overrated and has been entrusted with way too much power way too soon ! IN CHIP WE TRUST LOL,WHAT A JOKE

  39. Amazing trade by the Rams. Amazing.

    Bradford has a couple good games to start his career and has then pretty much sucked and been injured since. Hell he even got outplayed by John Skelton for a 15 game stretch (when Skelton was actually starting rofl).

    Nick Foles is a quality QB and now the Eagles are going to have Sanchez and Bradford. Wow…simply WOW… and not in a good way.

    …and give up a draft pick?

    For BRADFORD?

    I don’t know what the Eagles are doing, but one thing I know…their direction isn’t pointing up.

    Welcome to the NFC west Foles, you’re definitely better then the guy you replaced. By alot.

  40. this is transition for the master plan, bradford will never play a single snap as an eagles..his contract will be bought out from the eagles and packaged for the top 1-10 pick..a price to pay to move up

  41. Sorry Eagles fans. He’s your walking rehab project now. Trade bait? Sorry. No one but Chip would take on Bradfords salary with his injury history.

  42. muslimponder,
    Pretty much spot on. Why this guy has been getting a pass for being a bust, including the injuries, is beyond me. Even when he’s healthy, he’s not that good, and being healthy last time I checked is part of the job description anyway.

  43. This deal is a bit weird. Chip will look like a genius if these deals work out. But right now I feel like he’s completely ruining his team. Time will tell I guess, but wow!

  44. Foles is booty he really isn’t the stud you people think he is. Bradford yeah it seems like way to much for a QB that missed 2 seasons and playing in Chips scheme. I highly doubt Bradford is there to stay but regardless Bradford as injury prone that he is will stilll have a far more productive career than Foles. Watch Foles will start for a season and dwindle off just like Kolb. Bradford must have a pretty big skill set if teams want him after missing 2 seasons…..If Foles had 2 knee surgery and missed 2 straight seasons he would be out of the NFL

  45. This is like Draft Day with a really bad ending!

    I can just see Jeff Lurie on the side of the stage thinking well at least we got our franchise QB, and then finding out he gave up this years draft nexts years and Chip drafted a QB with the first overall pick.

    Get the plane ready we need to go fire Chip!

  46. When I first heard of the QB swap, I thought it would be a straight up trade or that the Eagles would be GETTING a draft pick in addition to getting Bradford. I totally don’t get Philly sending a 2nd rounder, even if for next year, to the Rams.

    Maybe it is as someone else suggested, that Bradford is part of a package to trade up. But if the Philly trade partner wanted a QB, I would think they would prefer Foles over Bradford.

    OK, I am back to saying “what the heck???”

  47. It isn’t trade bait guys. If the titans or whoever wanted Bradford, they don’t need the eagles to get him. Has there ever been a time when any football team has ever traded for a guy to just trade him again? Never. Our qbs next year are bradford and Sanchez. Get used to it.

  48. If the Titans wanted Bradford why wouldn’t they have gone out and got him themselves? Chip thinks he can be a middle man and take his cut? This is so bizarre, something HAS to be worked out with another team in advance of this right? On a side note, think of how loaded a team that drafted well would be with all the pics the Rams have had recently.

  49. I could see the trade being QB for QB and swapping 1st round picks. However, I for the life of me cannot figure out what the fuq made Philly give up 3 picks plus Foles for 2 time ACL tear QB and his HIGH cap hit….

    Not sure how any type of trade for Bradford would be worth 3 picks and a player. Just dumbfounded at this point. As a fan, nothing I can do except speak with my wallet if they do not field a competitive team come September.

  50. Big Chip fan here, but this… This makes no sense. Being a Philly sports fan is like being in eternal hell.

  51. tIt isn’t trade bait guys. If the titans or whoever wanted Bradford, they don’t need the eagles to get him. Has there ever been a time when any football team has ever traded for a guy to just trade him again? Never. Our qbs next year are bradford and Sanchez. Get used to it.

    —————————

    those other teams probably didnt want to pay that salary, eagles pay and he is shipped..chip has quite a bit of money to burn since he couldnt sign mcoourty and gore

  52. Say goodbye to your #1 and #2 pick Eagles. He’s packaging up bradford and the 2 picks in order to mortgage the franchise on Mariota. SMH

    ——–
    2 picks and bradford for mariota is hardly mortgaging..thats a steal, no current players lost and just 2 picks LOL plus the deal in bradfords deal has clauses that gives eagles back their intial investment

  53. Chip Kelly is a nut job! Bradford has ACL’s in both knees from cadavers (corpses). I think the dead guys that have been buried already have a greater chance of surviving an NFL season than Bradford!

  54. I think Lurie is a total wimp. Desean Jackson, McCoy, Maclin, Foles… all young star players, multiple future draft picks, all gone.

    In return, you get a couple of crippled guys, including a QB who can’t make it down the stairs without an injury, who has a losing record, injury prone who never play a full season for his team.

    This is your friggin franchise, you pay the bills, how do you permit a crazy college coach to come in and destroy a team you and Andy has worked to build in a decade? I know jerry jones would never let that happen. Even Sneider wouldn’t. Chip needs to check in to a mental facility and out of football for the forseeable future.

    Lurie, enjoy being the laughingstock and the basement of the NFL.

  55. Wow normally I’d be quick to get on here and joke eagles fans for news like this but I’m starting to find myself getting just as aggravated with some of his moves as they probably. It’s really not funny anymore. Good luck fans it kills me to say this but I hope what Chip is doing helps more than it hurts.

  56. So the consensus seems to be the Rams fleeced the Eagles?

    Really?

    The 3rd round pick who couldn’t beat out Michael Vick in a straight up competition and only got the job due to injury is better then injury prone former number 1 pick with perfect mechanics I guess.

    I can understand the doubt but I think this is genius of Chip Kelly. I never bought the whole Chip Kelly is genius argument until now actually.

    Bradfords best year was his rookie, with OC Pat Shurmur who is now the OC in Philly. The Rams have never surrounded him with offensive talent or a solid O-Line which he will now have in Philly.

    Foles struggled last year surrounded by a stacked offensive team and looked shaky against teams like Jacksonville, St. Louis and Washington!

    Also this article fails to mention the Eagles only give up a 2nd if Bradford stays healthy, if he doesn’t the Rams give the Eagles a 3rd or a 4th. Oh yeah, and if he does get hurt I believe the Eagles just brought back Sanchez.

    So while it’s a big gamble by Chip, it’s not nearly the fleecing people are making it out to be. IfI Bradford stays healthy then Chip will indeed look like a genius. Book it!

  57. I think there are 30 other teams trying to trade with Chip while the going is good.

    as for the poor Rams they will simply blow 95% of the picks like they always have.

  58. This is crazy. They traded Foles for a walking ACL tear who has a salary cap busting cap hit and who is only under contract for 1 year?

    And a second round pick?

    ———————————————

    Fole’s problems last year stemmed from his decimated offensive line and a coach who refused to adjust to it. LeSean McCoy also had a rough year last year but i don’t see people complaining about him. His problems also stemmed from a horrible offensive line.

    By the time the line was healthy it was Sanchez under center because the coach wanted him to stand in the pocket and get crushed rather than get rid of the ball or hand it off.

    The Eagles were passing it when they were at the 1 yard line because they didn’t have faith they could gain 1 yard with that line but let’s blame the QB since he’s not here anymore.

    ———————————————————-

    Since you are only using one game as an example, I will too. First game of the season against Jacksonville, with a healthy o-line, and Foles couldn’t hit, to quote Birds 24/7 “The most open receivers I have ever seen in an NFL season game.”

    Rewriting history to fit a narrative is easy. I’m not saying Foles sucks by the way. My point is while there is a big risk in Bradford, his ceiling is much higher then Foles and the Eagles already have a contingency plan in place if it doesn’t work.

    I get the scepticism but it’s not the terrible deal some are making it out to be. Foles is not a proven commodity and while Bradford has a big cap hit, it doesn’t last long.

  62. Chip is the Manchurian Coach sent by the Jerry, Mara and Danny Boy to leave the Eagles in a shambles for the next 10 years.

  63. Whole lotta hoopla for a guy who’s never done a thing. Huge rookie contract and now a semi-blockbuster trade. I hope the Eagles plan on protecting this guy. A stiff breeze will end his career.

  64. Everyone is forgetting that bradford is good when healthy which is rare but he is similar to mariota. i think bradford is an audition and if he gets hurt they get another draft pick. plus the eagles can’t trade up now so they are probably thinking about trading down to pick up more picks…or maybe they agreed with the rams if mariota falls to 10 then they will switch picks with them for cheap.

  65. The people talking like this is baseball and that Chip got Bradford and his massive $13 mil salary to trade him again to other teams that are in position to draft who he wants or Winston are out to lunch. Those teams could have just grabbed him themselves if that was the case. This isn’t baseball or basketball. This happened because (a) Bradford wouldn’t take a justified pay cut, b) Pat Shurmur vouched for Bradford, and (c) Chip is crazy. Wonder what college is hiring Chip next year after Philly goes 4-12.

  66. What happened to checks and balances, this guy chip has too much power and it seems abused. Im a cowboys fan, we might of not done much in FA today but what the eagles and the giants have dont today definitely got me thinkin playoffs!

  67. this is a ploy to get Mariota….Mariota is staying in school, and Chip wants to ensure the Eagles go 1-15 to ensure that they get him NEXT year.

  68. Anyone that believes Bradford is trade bait to the Titans is a fool. First off, there is no guarantee that the Titans will do a trade. If they do, then you have to look at the whole situation as collusion.

  69. Two things are obvious. Chip Kelly wants to win a super bowl, and he watches a lot of film. That is why he went out and got Sam Bradford. I know there are 53 guys on the roster, but if you have an elite QB, he’s more important than the other 52. Sam Bradford might not ever play another down, but if he stays healthy, he’s a top five QB. The odds of picking up a top five QB are probably lower than the odds of Bradford staying healthy. That’s what Chip Kelly is banking on. I love it.

  70. I tend to believe in conventional football moves, so this one is a head-scratcher to me.

    A lot of folks have questioned Kelly’s tactics up until now, but he’s come out alright so far. The roster shuffling is far from over, maybe he knows something we don’t.

    Now as a Redskins fan I’m good at recognizing train wrecks. While this trade is puzzling, it also feels different. I guess we’ll have to see how it plays out.

  71. I am completely stumped by this trade. Unless they have already agreed to swap first round picks in secret until draft day. Otherwise, I’m pretty sure that Chip Kelly may have just helped St. Louis land Mariota.

    …..or maybe that was the trade all along. I give you my decent QB and take your broken dead money. You stay put in the draft until your pick so nobody thinks Mariota is in danger of coming off the board until it’s too late. Chip….you evil genius.

    ….or not. SMH. I have no idea what the hell is going down in Philly. All I know is they sure won’t be calling it the city of brotherly love while Chip is in charge.

    Sorry. Had to do it.

  72. All the jokes are cute, cleveer and some pretty funny. BUT, it doesn’t take a genius to see that there is back room deals with either or the Titans or 49ers (Colin) the EAGLES can cut Bradford with ZERO cap hit. I’m sure a deal to move up to get Mariota involves Bradford calm down Eagle nation.

  73. I can’t wait to hear Chip’s next interview…

    “I am on a drug, it’s called Chip Kelly. It’s not available because if you try it you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.
    Winnng!”

  74. Chip you are doing a mighty fine job up there in philly! Keep up the good work , you know he’s gonna destroy the the Eagles roster then he’s bouncing back to college!! Chip is a snake!!

    Didn’t Nick Foles have 1 really good year? How many good years has Bradford had? Bradford has not come close to the season Foles had.

  76. I don’t understand why the Titans seem to be everyone’s play here…The Titans have already stated they like Mettenberger a lot, and the teams at 3 (Jax), 4 (Oak), and 5 (Was) don’t need or won’t take a QB. That makes the Jets at #6 the most likely trade partner and they’ve already expressed a desire for Bradford… before this trade even happened.

    Kaepernick would probably be the next most likely scenario here and I’d even “settle” for Mariota, but Bradford is the least desirable option here.

    Come on Chip, you gotta start renewing a little faith here on the heels of the late season collapse and with all these moves without much explanation from those in the organization.

  77. Skins fan here. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Skins fan out.

  78. The Deadskins have a crazy owner. (So do the Cowboys)
    The Eagles have a crazy coach/GM
    The Giants have a very good coach but some problems.
    Dallas by default.

    Do we have 2 NFC South’s next year?

  79. Is it almost time for the Rams to start turning these one sided deals into Ws? I’m reluctant to celebrate since we haven’t shown the ability to consistently make these picks count.

  80. Excuse me, but did a rogue Eagle swoop in today and with bloody talon’s fly off with Chip Kelly’s brain?

    CK has depleted the entire offense for Sam Bradford…Really???

  81. Man oh man, if I could only listen to Philadelphia sports radio channels tonight!!!!!!

    Hey, have no fear Philly…at least you’ve still got the best Cheesesteaks and Hoagies on the planet…football team, well, not so much!

    Keep ’em coming Chip!

    What we’re seeing is one of the all time worst trade deals ever, on the back of the all time worst play call ever in the SB…And these coaches are getting paid big bucks for these decisions? Unbelievable!

  82. Whoa, this is pretty wild. Lol
    A very odd mixture of teams possibly building a weird equation on top of it..?

    Chip trying to Out-Spiel Rick Spielman???
    And maybe going a little Too Far?

    Apparently SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE, knows SOMETHING. LOL

    All I know is, I haven’t been this confused and SO curious at the same time in quite a while. Going to be very interesting to see how all of this works out

  84. Completely insane.

    This screams a trade that was made due to someone who was impatient.

    Couldn’t he have traded those draft picks for kaepernick or the guy he loves in mariota instead?

    Bradford is injury riddled as hell.

    I like this move by the rams. They are building a tough team through draft picks. One quarterback away from being a powerhouse and a few guys on the secondary.

  85. If Chip were stocking up on guys with previously torn ACLs, he’s gotta be really upset that Frank Gore bailed.

    Frank tore both in college.

    Gonna miss him in SF.
    Sorry Chip, you missed out on a true football Warrior.
    And an even better Gentleman.

    This trade today just blows my mind.

  86. After sleeping on this I’m ok with it. Foles isn’t a franchise Qb and we have seen his best. It’s not going to win a Super Bowl. Moving on with a potential franchise QB is a pretty good consolation prize in the Mariota sweepstakes.
    Go Birds! ICIT.

  87. As a Die hard Cowboy fan, I approve all of Chips moves.
    Dallas Cowboys 2015 NFC East Champs….
    Eagles finish 6-10 but the bright side is they should get a top ten pick in nest years draft.

  88. This may just be the most amusingly lopsided trade since the Bears hemorrhaged two 1st rounders, a 3rd, and Kyle Orton for Jay Cutler.
