So, it’s only May 6, and Sam Bradford has avoided NovaCare like the plague as everyone in town is wondering who has the edge in the bake-off between veteran Sam, who’s pissed that the Birds drafted a QB, namely Carson Wentz

Bradford is making $18 million a year and wants out because the Eagles traded up to draft Wentz at No. 2 overall. Even though Wentz came from a pro-set offense at North Dakota State and might have a quicker conversion than Jared Goff, the plan is to sit him this year.

The Eagles already said Bradford is the starter, but the battle is more focused on Bradford versus the organization. He has no plans to show up until the June minicamp, when he would be subject to fine if absent. That means he isn’t learning Doug Pederson’s West Coast offense. Chase Daniel, making $7 million a year, will get first-team reps until Bradford shows up.

Bradford is unlikely to be traded — he makes too much money. He felt betrayed with the arrival of Wentz because he is in a one-year situation and will be shipped out after the season.

For now, Bradford has the edge because the money is too good for him to miss more than OTAs.

Stay tuned!
