The Vikings are sending their 201 7 first-round pick and a conditional 2018 fourth-round pick to the Eagles for Bradford.
According to Schefter, the Eagles will receive a 2018 third-round pick from the Vikings if Minnesota goes to the NFC Championship game. However, if they make it to the Super Bowl, the Eagles would get the Vikings second-round pick in 2018.
The Eagles have already confirmed the trade.

Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Vikings have contacted the Eagles about a potential trade involving QB Sam Bradford. However, Philadelphia is not looking to trade Bradford.
- Caplan considers a Bradford trade to the Vikings to be a “long shot“, but doesn’t completely rule it out either.
Last night Les Bowen mentions that an AFC executive told him that the Vikings are really trying to get a quarterback from somewhere, and he wondered if the Eagles would be willing to make Bradford available.
Then, Broncos DC Wade Phillips posted a tweet wondering if Bradford was an option for the Vikings, but he deleted soon after.
There’s no doubt that the Vikings are considering any and all options at quarterback right now following the loss of Teddy Bridgewater. Beyond that, the Eagles do have a number of quarterbacks on their roster including No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz, so it would seem like they may be willing to trade one of their veterans.
Bradford, 28, signed a two-year, $36 million contract that included $26 million guaranteed with the Eagles over a month ago. He stands to make base salaries of $7 million and $13 million over the next two years.
In 2015, Bradford appeared in 14 games for the Eagles and threw for 3,725 yards while completing 65 percent of his passes to go along with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
