Sam Bradford, one of those human beings, has asked the Eagles to trade him. Bradford also told the team he will not report to any further voluntary preseason activities.
The Eagles signed Bradford to a new $35 million, two-year contract in March. l.
Bradford took part in the Eagles’ three-day minicamp last week. On the second day of the camp, however, the Eagles obtained the No. 2 pick in this week’s NFL draft in a trade with the Cleveland Browns.
The Eagles’ plan was for Bradford to start in 2016.
Bradford probably would not be in the Eagles’ plans beyond 2016. They could release him after the season for just a $5.5 million hit on their 2017 salary cap. Trading Bradford would mean the Eagles have to eat his $11 million signing bonus. (ESPN)
Now the Eagles will have to make a new plan for their quarterback situation, including what could become a messy situation with a Bradford trade.
