PHILADELPHIA — The Eagles have traded quarterback Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings for a pair of draft picks.

Bradford replaces Teddy Bridgewater, who went down for the season after suffering a gruesome knee injury this week. The Eagles receive a first-round pick in 2017 and a fourth-round pick in 2018.

Bradford’s departure means backup Chase Daniel will start the season as Philadelphia’s No. 1 quarterback. Carson Wentz, who was selected with the No. 2 overall pick, missed the last three preseason games after breaking his ribs.

Bradford re-signed with the Eagles in March on a two-year, $35 million deal with $22 million fully guaranteed. ESPN is reporting that the Eagles are responsible for Bradford’s $11 million signing bonus, which was due on or before Sept. 1. The rest of his contract, $20 million in base salaries and $4 million March 2017 roster bonus, would go to the Vikings, according to ESPN.
