Two people familiar with the trade say the Philadelphia Eagles and St. Louis Rams have agreed to swap quarterbacks Nick Foles and Sam Bradford.
Both people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the teams still were working on the draft picks involved in the deal.
Bradford hasn’t played since his 2013 season ended after he tore his left ACL. The former No. 1 overall pick tore it again in preseason last year.
Foles had a breakout season for the Eagles in 2013 and was offensive MVP of the Pro Bowl. He missed the last eight games in 2014 after breaking his collarbone.
Foles is the latest star player to depart Philadelphia, joining two-time All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy and Pro Bowl wide receiver Jeremy Maclin.
UPDATED (6:54 p.m.): The Eagles and Rams both confirmed the trade, with Philadelphia detailing that it also gave up a 2015 fourth-round pick and 2016 second-round selection for Bradford and a 2015 fifth-round choice. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Eagles would receive a 2016 third-round pick if Bradford doesn’t play in 2015 and a 2016 fourth-rounder if he starts on less than 50 percent of the plays.
