EAGLES’ BRADFORD IS BRACELESS AND UNRESTRICTED TO PLAY TODAY!

By Mary Cunningham

That big whooooshing sound you just heard is Eagles Nation breathing relief.

According to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, Sam Bradford, the centerpiece of his offseason plan, has been cleared for 11-on-11 drills.

“We don’t have any restrictions on him,” he told reporters Sunday morning, adding the quarterback is on track to start the team’s first preseason game.

Outside of acquiring Marcus Mariota this offseason, a healthy Bradford has to be the best possible news for Kelly and his offense.

Amid a radical roster turnover, he envisioned a top-five caliber passer under center and, despite two brutal ACL tears in two seasons, Bradford has been viewed as a once-in-a-decade prospect by scouts and executives across the league.

Kelly has likened his acquisition to the Saints snagging an injured Drew Brees back in 2006.

NFL Media’s Albert Breer also noted that Bradford is practicing without the balky knee brace he usually dons to protect his knee.
