Report: Sam Bradford ‘Mad’ About Eagles’ Trade
Before practice yesterday as the Eagles prepared for the start of minicamp, Sam Bradford faced a horde of media members all wanting to ask the same thing.
What do you think about reports saying Philadelphia will trade up to draft a quarterback?
“If it happens, then that’s something that I deal with when it happens,” Bradford said. “But if it doesn’t happen, there’s really not a lot of sense in wasting time and thought and energy on that.”
Now that it’s gone through, Bradford is reportedly unhappy.
“He’s hot,” a source told Adam Schefter. “Who wouldn’t be? This is Philly saying, ‘We don’t see (you) as long-term answer.’ He’s mad and wants to show everyone who’s best.’’
Howie Roseman said today that Bradford is still the starting quarterback, although it’s possible the rookie could beat him out for the job. The Eagles acquired the No. 2 pick — to draft Carson Wentz or Jared Goff — and Cleveland’s 2017 fourth-round pick by giving up their 2016 first-round pick (No. 8 overall), 2016 third-round pick (No. 77 overall), 2016 fourth-round pick (No. 100 overall), 2017 first-round pick and 2018 second-round pick.
Roseman also told reporters today that he wasn’t concerned with how Bradford would handle the trade.
“He’s a pro,” Roseman said. “I have no concerns about Sam’s professionalism.”
