Before heading to Minnesota, Bradford helped Wentz in Philly

Carson Wentz owes some of his success to Sam Bradford.

Bradford certainly wasn't thrilled when the Eagles drafted Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick, but he served as a mentor to the rookie throughout the summer until he was traded to Minnesota on Sept. 3.

"When I first got here, it was good to have Sam and Chase (Daniel)," Wentz said Wednesday. "I talked to Sam quite a bit and really wanted to dive deeper into this offense. Sam had some good insight on our offense, and he was in a number of other systems as well. We had good conversations. I really built a good relationship with him and I look forward to playing against him."
