Sam Bradford wanted out. Then he didn’t. Now he’s out, and he’s happy about it.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Bradford is “thrilled” by the move that abruptly sends him from Philadelphia to Minnesota only eight days before Week One.
The Vikings surely wouldn’t have given up so much if Bradford hadn’t bought in. Regardless, he’s buying in.
And for good reason. Although the Eagles were setting the bar low for Carson Wentz, it seemed inevitable that he’d play this year, at some point. This gives Bradford a full year and maybe more, playing with a contender led by Bradford’s former Oklahoma teammate with plenty of gas in the tank.
