Eagles won’t receive additional draft pick from Rams in Sam Bradford Trade

According to a report from Jason La Canfora from CBS Sports, the Eagles could have picked up an additional 2016 draft pick in their trade for Sam Bradford, but that looks extremely unlikely when looking at the conditions. This was previously unreleased information and the stipulations are very interesting to say the least.

Per the CBS report, the conditions were that the Eagles would receive a 2016 draft pick if the following conditions were met:

no pick once Sam Bradford reaches 50% of the teams overall snaps this season
a fourth round pick if Sam Bradford reaches less than 50% of the teams overall snaps this season
a third round pick if Sam Bradford didn’t play a single snap this season

It’s evident that Chip Kelly is behind Bradford all the way despite an inconsistent start and as we approach the midpoint of the season, it looks as though the extra draft pick won’t be dealt to Philadelphia. For that to happen, Mark Sanchez would need to play EVERY snap of weeks 8-16….

The extra pick was apparently a precautionary measure taken by two teams when looking at Bradford’s health who at the time was still rehabbing his second torn ACL. So if he wasn’t ready or fell injured again early on, the Eagles would receive some compensation in the way of a 2016 pick.
