It doesn't look as "pretty" when you put it like this
Bradford = #14 & 2018 4th vs Mahomes(potential) #14 & 2017 3rd

I'd obviously rather pay what we did for Bradford than what teams paid but in the same breathe it wouldn't have cost us as much as it did KC coming up as we would have only been moving 4 spots.

Something we'll also never know is if a potential better deal was out there. I was high on McCarron coming out and I thought he proved himself in every opportunity he had but what would the cost have been? Was it possibly less/more? It's something we'll never know.

Now with that said I personally wouldn't have traded a 1st for any QB unless I knew for sure Teddy was done but I can also understand why they did which is the frustrating part atleast for myself.

When the injury to Teddy Bridgewater forced the Minnesota Vikings to make a deal to land Sam Bradford, one of the laments from an uniformed fan base was that the Vikings were taking a pretty fat contract to bring in Bradford. As it turns out, that isn’t true, at least in NFL quarterback terms. The list of quarterback contracts, ranked in order of guaranteed money, shows how the cost of doing business is going up. As things currently stand, 13 quarterbacks are playing under contracts that average more than $20 million a year – a list that doesn’t include Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford and young guns like Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota due for hefty paydays.

1. Andrew Luck - $87 million, $24.6 million
2. Derek Carr - $70.2 million, $25 million
3. (tie) Eli Manning - $65 million, $20.8 million
3. (tie) Philip Rivers - $65 million, $20.8 million
5. Ben Roethlisberger - $64 million, $21.9 million
6. Joe Flacco - $62 million, $22.1 million
7. Russell Wilson - $61.5 million, $21.9 million
8. Cam Newton - $60 million, $20.8 million
9. Matt Ryan - $59 million, $20.8 million
10. Aaron Rodgers - $54 million, $22 million
11. (tie) Ryan Tannehill - $45 million, $19.3 million
11. (tie) Alex Smith - $45 million, $17 million
13. Drew Brees - $44 million, $24.4 million
14. Matthew Stafford - $41.5 million, $17.7 million
15. Carson Palmer - $33.5 million, $21 million
16. Tom Brady - $30 million, $15 million
17. Jared Goff - $27.9 million, $7 million
18. Carson Wentz - $26.7 million, $6.7 million
19. Jameis Winston - $25.4 million, $6.3 million
20. Marcus Mariota - $24.2 million, $6 million
21. Kirk Cousins - $23.9 million, $23.9 million
22. Sam Bradford - $22 million, $17.5 million
23. Blake Bortles - $21 million, $5.2 million
24. Mike Glennon - $18.5 million, $15 million
25. Andy Dalton - $17 million, $16 million
26. Tyrod Taylor - $15.5 million, $15.3 million
27. Brian Hoyer - $9.9 million, $6 million
28. Josh McCown - $6 million, $6 million
29. Cody Kessler - $665,000, $847,000
30. Dak Prescott - $383,000, $681,000
31. Tom Savage - $301,000, $630,000
32. Trevor Siemian - $53,000, $583,000

I still don't think Bradford will get a long term deal with the Vikings. I think he'd need to have a stellar year in 2017 for that to happen, and I just don't see that happening. He's a mediocre quarterback, and this team has a lot of real talent looking to snag big contracts in the next few years. I certainly wouldn't sacrifice any of them for a mediocre QB.

we'll see.

it'd be interesting if Sam had a bad or average year, but the team still made the playoffs. it'd be 2012 like with Christian Ponder at the helm.

to that extent, do you re-sign Bradford because "he took the team to the playoffs"...?

It depends upon what you would deem as Bradford having a bad or average year, considering his bad or average would still probably be better than Ponder ever produced, as the Vikings don't have to call plays to protect Bradford from himself, like they did with Ponder.

Plus, at this point, I'm not sure Bradford is really "capable" of having a bad year...average, certainly, but not bad. He's far too talented to have a really bad year...at least on a Ponder-like level.

I think Bradford has a better year then last year.

And under that circumstances, he gets an extension.

examine what you are saying, instead of using cliched language.

if Bradford has a bad or average year and the team makes the playoffs, then he wasn't the source of the team's success.

I agree; however, he is unlikely to set another percentage completion mark, but should have more TD's, yards, and YPA. I bet Cook inflates Bradford's stats by turning some of those dump-off passes into big gains, and also inflating his TD total via the same method. It would be nice to have a MN QB surpass 30 TD's in a season, something last accomplished by grandpa, right?
