Sam Bradford’s feeling are hurt. Since the Eagles traded up and are now owners of the number 2 pick in this week’s draft, it is pretty apparent that they’ll draft a quarterback in that slot. Bradford is only on a 1-year deal with the team, so he’s probably realizing that the team has his there to serve as a season-long mentor to whoever they pick.
Well, Bradford is not having it and wants out. In fact, he will not be participating in any of the team’s offseason workouts any more. But what leverage does Bradford really have? None. His market isn’t nearly as big as he’d like to think. He’s serviceable, but teams aren’t exactly lining up. The Eagles have no incentive to give in to his demands and it would be surprising if they do.
Executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman told Comcast SportsNet on Monday that he wanted “to reiterate our support for Sam Bradford and go back to our statements last week — that Sam is our starting quarterback.
“His agent and Sam know how we feel about him. These workouts are voluntary. We look forward to seeing Sam again in the near future.”
