We do not know the extent of the 2018 compensation yet, but the 2017 first rounder given away to obtain the services of Bradford is certainly a steep price to pay. Some might even call it “mortgaging the future,” which general manager Rick Spielman indicated he would not do earlier this week.
(UPDATE: The 2018 compensation is reportedly a fourth rounder.)
