Last week, the Philadelphia Eagles shocked the entire league by giving up a freakin’ ransom to move up to the No. 2 spot in this week’s NFL Draft, which, presumably, they’ll use to select quarterback Carson Wentz in hopes that he’ll be their future face of the franchise.
That didn’t exactly sit well with current Eagles signal-caller Sam Bradford, who had just inked a new extension with the team earlier this offseason. In fact, its made Bradford so pissed off that, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Bradford is demanding a trade:
Bradford, who is guaranteed $22 million next year thanks to his new deal, also told Philly that he won’t be showing up for the team’s offseason program, making things pretty awkward in Eagles’ headquarters right about now.
Drafted No. 1 overall by the St. Louis Rams in 2010, Sam Bradford has battled injuries and inconsistency throughout his career, but he’s still young and talented enough to turn things around under the right circumstance—it just, probably, won’t be with Philadelphia.
