Report: Vikings likely to keep QB Sam Bradford

The Minnesota Vikings reportedly have plans to bring back the quarterback they traded away a first round pick to acquire back in September.

Apparently the quarterback’s performance this season has done enough to convince the Vikings to keep him on the roster for another year according to USA TODAY’s Tom Peliserro who tweeted: "Big bonuses due in March for two key #Vikings players. No big surprise: they plan to pay Sam Bradford's."

Peliserro cited, “people with knowledge of the team’s thinking,” as the source for the information.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said this report should clear up any speculation that Minnesota may try and move Bradford elsewhere before his $4 million roster bonus is due in March. The Vikings are expected to pay that and as of right now, the quarterback is scheduled to make $18 million in 2017 under the terms of his current contract.
