Bradford Camp Believes Eagles Lied
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - Tom Condon stayed on the offensive Tuesday, claiming the Eagles should have clued in Sam Bradford on the team's ultimate plan to replace him.
“As they were making this plan, it would have been nice if they had told him about it,” Bradford's agent told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.
Condon claims Bradford re-signed with the Eagles because he felt that the organization wanted to win now, not mortgage the future for his eventual replacement.
“Basically, our contention is that the team could have used the draft picks on offensive and defensive players for this season, to win this season,” Condon said. “If the plan was to build for the future, where does that leave Sam this year?”
It leaves Sam trying to force a trade and skipping voluntary workout as the Eagles march on with their plans to take a quarterback with the No. 2 overall selection on Thursday night, presumably Carson Wentz.
Condon again affirmed he has asked the Eagles for permission to work out a trade with another team and to this point Philadelphia has refused.
Bradford is not required to be at the NovaCare Complex again until the team's mandatory mini-camp, which begins on June 7.
"It's his right to demand a trade and he wants to be traded," said Condon.
