2. Eagles acquire Bradford; who’s the favorite to start?

The Eagles sent Nick Foles to St. Louis in exchange for former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford as both teams try to figure out their situation under center.

The Eagles already re-signed Mark Sanchez earlier this offseason, so it appears as if Sanchez and Bradford will compete for a starting job. Sanchez took over for an injured Foles midway through 2014 while Bradford has been dealing with rookies consistently since being named the 2010 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Since the start of 2010, Sanchez and Bradford own the second- and third-worst Total QBR in football, respectively, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

It was rumored that Philadelphia could be in the market for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, a likely top-six pick in the 2015 draft. While it seems like that notion could be put to rest, the fact that there are two veteran quarterbacks on the roster makes you wonder if one could just be trade bait.
