Will the Eagles Sign Sam Bradford Long-Term?
"We wouldn't have traded for him if we thought that he'd only be here for a year."
That's what Eagles head coach and GM Chip Kelly said today about his quarterback Sam Bradford, continuing to insist he wants to sign Bradford long-term.
Many have wondered if the Eagles will bring him back next season. Bradford's contract is up after the season and could sign with another team if he chooses to.
"We've always wanted that," Kelly said about Bradford coming back next season.
Bradford completed 23-of-38 attempts for 247 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Eagles' Week 14 win over the Bills.
"I thought Sam played outstanding," Kelly said after the win over the Bills. "He really put the ball on guys today. There really weren't any errant throws. We had a couple drops that if we caught those -- he did a great job.
Has Bradford shown enough development to justify bringing him back?
He sure thinks so.
"I think I’m just getting more comfortable," Bradford said. "I feel like my feet have been much better. I feel like my pocket movement has been much better. I feel like when I play with my feet in rhythm, good things usually happen. I feel like the past couple weeks, my feet have been pretty good.”
So Eagles fans are you ready to bring Bradford back next season?
