Sam Bradford ended his temper tantrum and re-joined the Philidelphia Eagles. Bradford had skipped workouts for the past two weeks in an attempt to force the Eagles to trade him. The Denver Broncos is one team that had an interest in Bradford, and he wanted to play there, but the Eagles demanded too much for him in return. Ticked-off by the Eagles for trading up to the number two pick in the ’16 draft to select QB Carson Wentz, Sam Bradford threw a hissy fit.
Sam Bradford instantly demanded a trade and refused to attend any of the Eagles voluntary workouts. Seeing that there was no chance of being traded, he lightened up and began joining workouts.
“I’m excited to be back on the field today with my teammates and coaches, the business side of football is sometimes a necessary consideration. My attention and efforts are focused on the participation in and preparation for a championship season: I am committed to my teammates and the Eagles organization for nothing less.”
QB Sam Bradford had signed a two-year $36 million contract back in March and believed that he would be the franchise QB, however, the drafting of Wentz made it seem like the Eagles had no faith in Bradford, whatsoever. The future situation for Bradford still remains unknown, but it is likely he will be the starting QB for the upcoming season, this is reminiscent of what QB Colin Kaepernick had gone through with the 49ers, and had begun to look a lot like what happened with Demarco Murray, last season.
