Just 10 days before the start of the regular season it was announced that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater would miss the entire 2016 season with a knee injury. With the devastating news still lingering general manager Rick Spielman knew it was his responsibility to find a new starting quarterback that could carry the offense.
Enter Sam Bradford. The former number one overall pick and rookie of the year failed to live up to lofty expectations but in fairness was never surrounding with much of a supporting cast.
While the Vikings fan base was in an outcry over the amount of capital it took to acquire Bradford, thus far he has done an outstanding job living up to the hype.
