The Denver Broncos have already reached out to the Philadelphia Eagles, according to the latest NFL trade rumors, with regards to the availability of disgruntled and injury-prone quarterback Sam Bradford.
According to Mike Klis of 9News, the Eagles have a high asking price for Bradford and the Broncos just couldn’t make a deal with Philadelphia yet. It is believed that the Denver team is still aggressive in trying to get a quarterback after losing Peyton Manning to retirement and Brock Osweiler in free agency to the Houston Texans.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter was one of the first to report that Bradford informed the Eagles that he wants to be traded from Philadelphia, which still views Bradford as their starting QB for next year.
Philadelphia recently acquired the No. 2 pick overall in the 2016 NFL Draft and is expected to draft a quarterback. NFL trade rumors are ripe that Bradford is on his way out of Philadelphia so that the Eagles can quickly start their rebuilding mode especially at the QB position.
“[Sam Bradford] wants to play somewhere where he’s going to stay for a long time if he plays well,” Tom Condon, the agent for Bradford said in a recent radio interview. “[He] would understand he’s a short-term guy even if he plays well. Sam wants to be the guy. He does not view himself as a stop-gap quarterback.
The 28-year-old Bradford signed a two-year deal worth $36M contract with the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this offseason. He’s guaranteed to be paid $26M but his starting QB job and role could be in danger in Philadelphia with the latest NFL trade rumors linking him to be available for trades.
