Eagles Trade Nick Foles To Rams For Sam Bradford

Mar 10, 2015 3:59 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles are close to agreement on a trade of Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams for Sam Bradford. The Eagles also gave up a fourth rounder in 2015 and a second rounder in 2016 while getting a fifth rounder in 2015 back from the Rams. The second round pick will be kept by the Eagles if Bradford isn't their starter.

AEG Abandons Pursuit Of Downtown Los Angeles Stadium

Mar 9, 2015 8:49 PM

AEG has decided to abandon their plans to build a football stadium in downtown Los Angeles.

AEG invested at least $50 million and five years in their efforts to build a stadium.

“I think it’s fair to say we have turned our attention to proceeding with an alternative development,” AEG Vice Chairman Ted Fikre said.

The St. Louis Rams are seeking a stadium in Inglewood, while the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers are working on a proposal in Carson.

Eric Grubman, NFL executive vice president and point man for the league on L.A., said the league has been "very interested" in the downtown site and has spent significant time with senior members of AEG. “We would always prefer to have an excellent site in the mix, but we recognize that it is not in our control.”

Rams' QB Coach Weinke Compares Sam Bradford To Luck

Feb 27, 2015 11:55 AM

Chris Weinke was hired this season as quarterbacks coach of the St. Louis Rams and he's bullish on Sam Bradford.

When Andrew Luck was coming out of college, Weinke said the closest comparison was to Bradford.

"And I say that without knowing Sam. I'd never met Sam until this process. Looking at his physical skill set. And then obviously talking to people and understanding his mental capacity and his football IQ, and all those different things.

"Sam by far has had the best pro day out of any guy I've ever evaluated from a physical standpoint. And he was coming off an injury at that point in time. So when you look at a guy who's a pure passer of the football from a physical standpoint, he's as good as anybody I've ever evaluated."

Rams Haven't Received Any Trade Interest In Sam Bradford

Feb 25, 2015 12:11 PM

The St. Louis Rams haven't received any trade calls about the availability of Sam Bradford.

Because Bradford has missed the majority of the past two seasons and will have to compete to keep his starting job, the Rams have pressured him to accept a reduction in his $13 million salary that counts $16.6 million against the salary cap in the contract's final year.

Bradford has not been interested in that request and his agent was allowed to contract other teams to gauge his value.

The Rams are seeking a second round pick for Bradford, who would be a one-year rental.

Inglewood Approves Plans For Rams' Stadium

Feb 25, 2015 11:08 AM

The Inglewood City Council late Tuesday night approved plans to build a football stadium that includes St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke as a partner, clearing a path for a return to the Los Angeles area of the NFL for the first time in two decades.

The council approved the $2 billion plan with a 5-0 vote after a meeting with several hours of public comment.

It adds the 80,000 seat, 60-acre stadium to an existing 2009 plan to redevelop the former Hollywood Park racetrack site with homes, offices, stores, parks and open space and a hotel.

New urgency for Inglewood came to the issue last week with the announcement that the Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers are planning a shared stadium in suburban Carson if they don't get their current hometowns to cough up enough money to replace their aging stadiums. Another stadium plan remains alive for downtown Los Angeles, but has no team attached.
