Quarterback Sam Bradford is staying with the Philadelphia Eagles for two more years.

Bradford agreed to a two-year deal with the Eagles amounting to about $36 million and with $26 million guaranteed, according to various reports. Exact terms and other details of the deal were not disclosed to the public.

Bradford moved to Philadelphia last season after a trade with the St. Louis Rams in the deal that also involved quarterback Nick Foles.

The 28-year-old Bradford played 14 games for the Eagles in the 2015 NFL season and threw a career-high 3,725 yards with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Bradford had a quarterback rating of 86.4 last year, his highest since his fourth year with the Rams in 2013 when he played in just seven games because of an injury.

Bradford won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2010, but knee injuries have been an issue throughout his career with the Rams, where he played from 2010 to 2013.

Bradford won the Heisman Trophy with Oklahoma in 2008 in his college football career and was selected the first overall pick by the Rams in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Additionally, the Eagles also signed Mark Sanchez as a back-up QB for Bradford for the 2016 NFL season.

NFL and Philadelphia fans and analysts also took to Twitter to share their reactions of Bradford re-signing with the Eagles.
