Sam Bradford reportedly very mad about Eagles trading for No. 2 pick
The Philadelphia Eagles made a splash Wednesday after trading five picks over the next three years to move up six spots for the No. 2 pick. But it appears not everyone is pleased with the blockbuster trade.
Sam Bradford reportedly is pretty upset by the move, an obvious signal by the club that it doesn’t see the veteran quarterback as a long-term solution.
"He’s hot," a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. "Who wouldn’t be? This is Philly saying, ‘We don’t see (you) as long-term answer.’ He’s mad and wants to show everyone who’s best.”

Bradford signed a two-year, $35 million deal with the Eagles in March that included an $11 million signing bonus. The oft-injured quarterback played in 14 games in his first season in Philly last year, throwing for 3,725 yards with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
The former No. 1-overall pick spent his first five years with the Rams, but multiple knee injuries limited his playing time. He missed the entire 2014 season after suffering with a torn ACL.
The injury woes followed him to Philly as Bradford missed two games last season with a concussion and a left shoulder injury. The Eagles are expected to choose whichever quarterback the Rams don’t take at No. 1 — either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff.
