New, comments

As the NFL league year begins, a flurry of trades flew in with just minutes before 4:00 p.m. One of them packages two teams with QB questions swapping their signal callers.

Sam Bradford came into St. Louis with a lot of hype and never really had the cast to support him there. He should have that problem no longer as is about to be traded to the Eagles for Nick Foles, according to Adam Schefter.

What makes this interesting is both of these quarterbacks have the potential to lead teams. In small doses, both have been successful. This trade will probably be looked at positively for both franchises. The Rams would like the potential that Nick Foles would give them in their offense paired beside Tavon Austin and Tre Mason.

The Eagles need someone who can compete with and probably replace Mark Sanchez. Sam Bradford was the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NFL draft. The question around Bradford is not his talent, but his inability to stay healthy.
