ESPN – The Philadelphia Eagles have been informed that quarterback Sam Bradford wants to be traded and will not be showing up for their offseason program any longer, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Bradford is upset at the Eagles’ trade last week for the No. 2 overall pick to draft a quarterback.
What an absolute slap in the face to underachievers everywhere. First Sam Bradford snakes $78 million out of the (former) St. Louis Rams for a grand total of 59 TD passes. Now obviously he was hurt most of the time he was in STL, but those are the stats he got PAID for. Then after a highly mediocre year in Philadelphia he somehow parlays that into ANOTHER big pay day with a 2 year $35 million deal. And the Eagles had the gall to trade up in the draft to likely take a QB after Bradford gave them 3,700 yards, 19 TDs and 14 INTs. Unbelievable. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame him for wanting to go somewhere where he’ll be the unquestioned starter, but Bradford has played terribly (and sunk my fantasy team in the process) so if it were me I’d tell Sam to have a coke and a smile and shut up.
