Report: No progress between Bradford and Eagles on new contract
After the Philadelphia Eagles acquired quarterback Sam Bradford this summer, there were talks about the team extending his contract. Bradford, the Eagles' projected starting quarterback, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. However, the Eagles can opt to use the franchise tag on him and that buys them some additional time. It appears that the Eagles are not very motivated to hammer out a long-term deal with Bradford before the start of the 2015 season.
NFL Media's Albert Breer reports that the two sides have talked, but no real progress on a contract extension has been made.
Bradford is still recovering from his second torn ACL in the last two seasons, and he has not been a full participant through the Eagles' OTA and mini-camp practices. He is hopeful that he will make a full return for training camp later in the summer. At this point in time, a contract extension before the start of the 2015 regular season seems unlikely.
