Report: Eagles and Sam Bradford talking contract extension
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford was ready to go during the Eagles' first practice of training camp, and he has held up without any issues through a few practices so far. According to ESPN's Ed Werder, the Eagles and Bradford are having discussions about a "short-term" contract extension.
Bradford is set to become a free agent after the 2015 season, but the Eagles may want to get ahead of the curve on a contract extension. If Bradford does have a breakout season in head coach Chip Kelly's quarterback-friendly offensive scheme, he could end up commanding a lot more money on the open market.
The Eagles briefly discussed a long-term contract extension with Bradford earlier in the offseason, but no deal was reached. A short-term extension could be a good compromise for both sides. Stay tuned.
