Plan B: Sam Bradford Plus 53 Man Roster & Practice Squad Tidbits [PODCAST]

Rick Spielman and the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings pulled the equivalent of Robert California closing down the Binghampton branch as the general manager traded a 2017 1st round pick and a 2018 conditional 4th rounder to Philadelphia for Matt Flynn-like financial magician Sam Bradford. Was it desperate? Yes. Was it a smart move? We’ve got 16 games to find out. We talk about the Bradford heist trade, what it means for Teddy Bridgewater’s 2017, and take a look at the final 53-man roster and practice squad.

  1. It was good to see Heinke at practice. I was curious what his injury status allows him to do. Maybe I will ask Wooby.
