Bradford spent the 2015 season with the Eagles after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams and playing his first five seasons with the franchise.
While Bradford has at times flashed the potential that made him the No. 1-overall pick in 2010, the Oklahoma product has appeared in all 16 regular season games just twice while dealing with two torn ACL along with other injuries.
Hasselbeck, meanwhile, is the oldest quarterback in the NFL as he’ll turn 41 years old before the start of the 2016 season.
Although he wasn’t expected to see much action as the Indianapolis Colts’ backup to Andrew Luck last season, he ended up starting eight games, throwing for 1,690 yards and nine touchdowns.
Another well-known veteran is Vick, who signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers last season.
Vick, 35, remains one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in history, as the Virginia Tech product has accumulated nearly 22,500 passing yards and 6,109 rushing yards in his career.
