Bradford, who missed the entire 2014 NFL season with a torn ACL, has been considered a bust to this point by many, but the 27 year-old can still prove himself in this league. Bradford had a 90.9 quarterback rating with 14 touchdowns and 1,687 passing yards for the Rams in the 2013 NFL season.
Foles, who also missed some time with a broken collarbone last season, bursted onto the seeing in 2013 after Michael Vick went down, as Foles had a 119.2 quarterback rating with 27 touchdowns for 2,891 passing yards in 13 games. Foles 2014 season had him playing in only 8 games, where he threw 13 touchdowns for 2,163 yards and a quarterback rating of 81.4.
