According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Bradford will not be attending the team’s offseason plan anymore and needs to be traded. Before Monday morning, Yahoo’s Charles Robinson reported the reverse, that Bradford, while upset about the trade, is “prepared to convince the Eagles that he is a franchise quarterback.”
Schefter reported that the commerce angered Bradford, and it was taken by Jason Cole of Bleacher Report a step farther by saying that Bradford would probably require a trade.
Before this off season, Bradford signed a two-year deal with $22 million completely guaranteed. Trading Bradford would result in $11 million in dead money.
28, sure, Bradford, signed a lucrative deal, but not one that would look like a long term strategy for the organization, which makes his unhappiness that was reported a little perplexing.
“I learned quite a while ago to avoid things like this,” he said. It ’s not my first time that I’ve gone through a scenario such as this. I believe I learned quite a while past to not worry about matters I can’t command, and that’s something I can’t command.”
But maybe the largest issue the Eagles have now could be the possibility of a locker room that is very sad.
Bradford’s teammates, who appear to enjoy the veteran quarterback, might unhappy about his reaction. At least two of his teammates, Zach Ertz and Jordan Matthews, genuinely enjoy him. Both openly pushed to resign Bradford and both seen with him in Oklahoma earlier this offseason.
Until OTAs begin on May 17 the Eagles are not together again as a team. But all the OTAs are not involuntary. The Eagles can not start to Bradford that is fine until he misses a required camp day.
