This would put an end to any news that Eagles were going to make a trade with the Tennessee Titans to acquire their second pick in this year’s NFL draft which could have acquired them Marcus Mariota. Or does it? Perhaps the Titans would be interested in Bradford moving forth. We shall have to see.
Nevertheless, Foles seems to be a nice upgrade for the Rams as proven by the fact he has completed more games (18) over his past two seasons compared to Bradford’s eight.
Foles is coming to St. Louis after three seasons, passing for a total of 6,753 yards and scoring 53 touchdowns. Bradford will arrive in Philadelphia after five seasons where he passed for a total of 11,065 yards and 59 touchdowns.
This trade definitely goes down as one of the more questionable that will arise over the 2015 free agency period.
