2016 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)Last updated on Sep-03-2016 by Shawn Childs
Update (9/3): Bradford was traded to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a 2017 first round pick and another pick to be determined in 2018. Bradford steps in for the injured Teddy Bridgewater. This isn't a huge improvement but it certainly helps on paper and salvages what could have been a tough year with Shaun Hill as the starter. Bradford is a fringe QB2 in Minnesota.
After playing in seven games over the previous two seasons, Bradford made it through 14 games in 2015. Sam finished with a career-high 65.0 percent completion rate, but his yards per pass attempt (7.0) remain in a weak area despite setting a career high. He missed two games due to a concussion and a left shoulder injury. The Eagles signed him to a two-year extension in March to help bridge the gap to incoming rookie Carson Wentz. In his career, Bradford has 25-37-1 record while never posting a winning season in the NFL. He had five games with 300 yards passing or more including his last three games of the season. Sam was non-productive in TDs (19) with only one game with three TDs. This season Philly has a new coaching staff, but all signs point to a high volume passing attack. Bradford has talent at WR plus a top pass catching TE and pass catching strength at RB. I expect plenty of balls in the air, but I do believe the Eagles will have success running the ball in the red zone. Last year Sam had some sexiness to him in the season-long draft season, but his failure and the presence of Wentz will deem him as just about free in 2016 as a back-end QB2. He has enough talent to pass for 4000 yards with even more upside with a full season of games played. His TD production should move in line with the league average. His downside is job loss.
