After one season in Philadelphia, the Eagles signed Sam Bradford to an extension in March… but then, traded for the No. 2 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft with plans to draft a quarterback. Now, he’s demanding a trade.
According to ESPN, the 28-year-old QB has informed that Eagles that he wants to be traded… and will not show up for their offseason program any longer.
Word is he’s upset that the Eagles’ traded for the pick to draft a new quarterback.
Still, the team is saying that Bradford remains their starter.
Executive VP of football operations Howie Roseman tells Comcast SportsNet that he reiterates “our support for Sam Bradford and go back to our statements last week — that Sam is our starting quarterback… His agent and Sam know how we feel about him. These workouts are voluntary. We look forward to seeing Sam again in the near future.”
Roseman also acknowledged that the Eagles intend to take a quarterback with the No. 2 pick they acquired from the Cleveland Browns in a trade last week.
Bradford started 14 games for the Eagles last season, after the team for him in an offseason trade with the Rams. He completed 65 percent of his pass attempts, throwing for 3,725 yards with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season… with a 7-7 record during his starts.
