Andrew Brandt tweeted out a few contract details.


The Eagles have announced they signed Sam Bradford to a two-year deal.

Per Adam Schefter, the deal is for two years and worth $36 million, with $26 million guaranteed.

The news comes just 20 minutes after the deadline to place the franchise tag on Bradford.


The NFL’s franchise tag deadline has come and gone, and there is no word of the Eagles using the franchise tag on Sam Bradford.

The deadline passed at 4:00 p.m. EST. If the Eagles have indeed decided not to tag Bradford, he is slated to become a free agent when the new league year begins on March 9, unless the Eagles sign him to a contract before then.

This year’s figure for placing the franchise tag on a quarterback was $19.9 million.

Washington decided to use the tag on Kirk Cousins, and will pay Cousins that figure in 2016.

The next important date for the Eagles and Bradford is March 7, when teams and players are permitted to contact agents and enter into contract negotiations, otherwise known as the “legal tampering period.”

A contract for a free agent cannot be officially executed with a new team until 4:00 on March 9, when the new league year begins and free agency officially opens. However, deals are often completed and all but official during the legal tampering period.

The Daily News’ Les Bowen tweeted yesterday that he doesn’t think the Eagles are out of the running for Bradford by not signing him before the deadline, but that “momentum fades,” and he expects Bradford and his camp to gear up for the legal tampering period.

Bowen also said Howie Roseman and Tom Condon, Bradford’s agent, were expected to talk today.

As of this afternoon, the only quarterbacks on the Eagles’ roster are Mark Sanchez and McLeod Bethel-Thompson.
