 width=>>Rams Move Trade Bradford for QB Foles

The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to terms on a trade that will send quarterback Nick Foles, a fourth-round draft pick in 2015 and a second-round pick in 2016 to the St. Louis Rams in exchange for former No. 1 overall draft pick Sam Bradford and the Rams' fifth-round pick in 2015.

Also, if Bradford plays less than 50 percent of the snaps next season, the Eagles get a 2016 fourth-rounder back, and if he doesn't play one snap for Philadelphia, it gets a third-round pick in 2016.

Bradford was named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2010 but has since had his career derailed by an assortment of injuries, most recently a torn ACL that sidelined him for the entire 2014 season.

The 27-year-old Bradford started seven games for the Rams in 2013, completing 60.7 percent of his passes for 1,687 yards and 14 touchdowns to just four interceptions before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

The 2008 Heisman Trophy winner threw for 11,065 yards, 59 touchdowns and 38 interceptions over 49 games with the Rams.

Foles put together a terrific 2013 campaign in which the three-year pro threw 27 touchdown passes and just two interceptions while leading the Eagles to an NFC East title. However, he wasn't able to replicate those outstanding numbers while missing half of last season with a broken collarbone sustained in November.

The 26-year-old Foles completed 61.6 percent of his passes for 6,753 yards, 46 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in 28 games (24 starts) with the Eagles.

 width=>>Brandon Marshall Passes Physical, Trade To Jets Complete

Brandon Marshall has passed his physical and his trade to the New York Jets from the Chicago Bears is official.

The teams agreed on the deal last Friday, but it became official at the start of the unrestricted free agency signing period Tuesday.

The Jets sent a fifth-round draft pick to the Bears for Marshall and a seventh-rounder. Marshall, who turns 31 on March 23, has played the last three seasons with the Bears. He dealt with injuries and had 61 catches last season, his lowest total since his rookie year with Denver in 2006, for 721 yards and eight touchdowns.

Marshall told the team's website playing in New York and for new coach Todd Bowles is "an amazing opportunity."

 width=>>Colts Bring In RB Gore, DE Cole, WR Johnson

The Indianapolis Colts made a quick start to the free agency period, agreeing to terms with running back Frank Gore and defensive end Trent Cole on Tuesday.

Gore had spent his entire 10-year career with San Francisco and was reportedly headed to Philadelphia, but apparently pulled out of a pending deal with the Eagles.

The five-time Pro Bowl selection will turn 32 years old in May. He has run for 11,073 yards and 64 touchdowns in 148 career games.

Despite his age, Gore's production hasn't diminished. He appeared in all 16 games last season, rushing for 1,106 yards and four touchdowns on 255 carries. He's gone over 1,000 rushing yards in four straight seasons.

Cole was released by the Eagles last week, saving Philadelphia $11.625 million against the salary cap in 2015.

A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Cole recorded 569 tackles, 85 1/2 sacks and 19 forced fumbles in 10 seasons with Philadelphia, which selected him in the fifth round of the 2005 draft. He ranks second in Eagles history in sacks, behind only Reggie White's 124.

The 32-year-old Cincinnati product had 52 tackles and 6 1/2 sacks in 2014.

>>Revis Returns To Jets

The agents for Darrelle Revis tweeted Tuesday night that the star cornerback has agreed to terms on a contract with the New York Jets.

Revis, 29, would return to the Jets after two seasons with Tampa Bay and New England.

According to multiple reports, the deal is for five years and $70 million with $39 million fully guaranteed.

He played his first six NFL seasons for the Jets, building a reputation as one of the league's top cornerbacks after they drafted him No. 14 overall in 2007.

Revis started all 16 games last season for the Patriots, collecting 47 tackles and two interceptions on the way to a sixth Pro Bowl nod.

>>Seahawks Trade For TE Graham From New Orleans

Just minutes before the NFL's free agency period was set to begin, the New Orleans Saints traded All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham to the two-time reigning NFC champion Seattle Seahawks.

The move sends Graham and a fourth-round draft pick to Seattle in exchange for center Max Unger and Seattle's first-round pick.

It will mean a third straight draft for the Seahawks without a first round pick unless they work out a move on draft night.

Graham, a former basketball star at the University of Miami, has been one of the league's most dominant tight ends since his breakout season in 2011.

He has appeared in 78 of a possible 80 games in five years with New Orleans, accumulating 4,752 yards and 51 touchdown catches, including a league-best 16 in 2013.

In Unger, New Orleans gets a 28-year-old, two-time Pro Bowler to bolster its offensive line.
