It’s still the silly season in the NFL.
And if you don’t believe me, check out that Chris Mortensen is reporting on ESPN that new Eagle QB Sam Bradford wants a contract extension and a no-trade clause inserted into his contract:
Even though he hasn’t thrown a pass in anger in almost two seasons because of injuries!
Here’s the transcript from yesterday’s “NFL Live”:
“I mean this is a guy that Chip Kelly traded Nick Foles to the Rams, a conditional second rounder next year, and a fourth round pick this year. They got a fifth round pick back from the Rams.
And they’re trying to work on a contract extension with Bradford. It’s a little bit tricky there. Bradford would like a no-trade clause for this year. So it tells you there’s skepticism right there. But he’s not going to sign an extension with any other team. In other words if there’s another team involved, and you’re trying to get Bradford to them so you can eventually get a guy like Marcus Mariota, Sam Bradford, who has one year left on his contract, will not agree to an extension with any team but the Eagles.
And the Eagles want him. And their offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who was the offensive coordinator in St. Louis when Bradford was the Rookie of the Year. He’s rehabbing, he’s getting ready, he’ll up and ready to go certainly no later than August.”
