According to a report, the Denver Broncos called the Philadelphia Eagles about quarterback Sam Bradford.
After the Eagles moved up to acquire the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, things have quickly gone downhill between the franchise and quarterback Sam Bradford. With several reports about Bradford wanting a trade out of Philadelphia, it seems likely that the Eagles will have to move him at some point.
One team that is in need of a quarterback is the Denver Broncos. The Broncos have Mark Sanchez on the roster, who backed up Bradford in Philadelphia last year, but they need a better option for the short term while they try to find their next quarterback of the future.
According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com, the Broncos called the Eagles about Bradford, but determined that the price was too high.
While many might wonder why the Eagles don’t just take what they can get, there’s no reason to just trade Bradford for the sake of trading him. With his fresh contract, it could leave implications on the salary cap that could hurt the team in the long run after just signing him.
Also there’s always the chance that the two sides could smooth things out and they can let their draft pick be groomed on the bench, while Bradford plays his contract. If the Eagles are going to move Bradford right now, their price is going to be a lot higher now because of the implications moving him might have.
It’s a thought that certainly shouldn’t be ruled out however.
