The Eagles trade Foles to the Rams in exchange for Bradford. From the Eagles, the Rams also get a couple of draft picks: a 2015 fourth-round pick and a 2016 second-round pick. The Eagles receive St. Louis’s 2015 fifth-round draft pick. Depending on how much Bradford plays, the Eagles may also pick up a conditional 2016 pick: if Bradford plays less than fifty percent, the Eagles will get a fourth-round pick; if he does not play at all, it becomes a third-rounder; if Bradford takes more than fifty percent of snaps, the Eagles will not receive the pick.
