Report: Sam Bradford likely to ask Eagles to trade him
The Eagles might have a quarterback problem on their hands after their blockbuster deal to land the No. 2 pick in the draft.
A day after he reportedly was very upset about the Eagles moving into position to take one of the two best QB prospects, it appears Sam Bradford might want a change of address. According to Bleacher Report, Bradford is likely to ask for a trade out of Philadelphia.
The Eagles traded five picks Wednesday to the Browns to move up six spots in this year’s first round. The Eagles are expected to pick whichever quarterback the Rams don’t take at No. 1 – either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff.
Bradford, who signed a two-year, $35 million deal with the Eagles in March, threw for 3,725 yards with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in his first year in Philadelphia.
But the oft-injured quarterback struggled to stay healthy in 2015, missing two games with a concussion and left shoulder injury. The former No. 1 pick of the Rams suffered multiple knee injuries during his five years in St. Louis. He missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL.
It’s tough to side with Bradford if he does request a trade. He’s made upwards of $80 million in his career despite not panning out, in large part because of his injury history. If he does demand to be moved, it would be interesting if there would be teams lining up for his services, most likely at a reduced rate.
