Bradford demands trade from Philly

Sam Bradford

With the Philadelphia Eagles signing of Chase Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract and then trading five picks to acquire the No. 2 overall pick so they could draft a quarterback, Sam Bradford sees that he has no future in Philadelphia even despite signing a two-year, $35 million contract on March 1.

It was just last year when the Eagles traded for Bradford, but clearly, he’s not a guy they are confident in and with the team making so many moves to acquire other quarterbacks, Bradford just wants to move on. ESPN‘s Adam Schefter has reported that Bradford has demanded a trade. News that should surprise nobody.

The former No. 1 overall pick had a career-year with the Eagles last year. He completed a career-high 65-percent of his passes or a career-high 3,725 yards to go with 19 touchdowns. Bradford just has not been particularly great in his NFL career, though. Really, he’s only been mediocre. Bradford’s 78 career passing touchdowns have been coupled with 52 interceptions and 12 fumbles. He’s not the most accurate quarterback either.

The Eagles are right to want to used the No. 2 draft pick on a quarterback, if they feel that quarterback can be their franchise player. Bradford does not want to be a hold over and then tossed aside. He wants to be a starting quarterback and wants to be put in a place where he can grow in another system and have his team’s confidence behind him. It does not seem like he has that in Philadelphia, and he wants out.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
