Quarterback Sam Bradford will not be hitting the free market. Instead, he is set to re-sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, sources revealed on Tuesday.
The Eagles traded Nick Foles with the Los Angeles Rams to acquire Bradford, reports the Real GM. Bradford was excellent in the second half of the season after a first spell that made him a likely No 1 target for many teams, according to SB Nation.
Bradford posted a touchdown-interception ratio of 10 to four in the season’s last seven games. Bradford bounced back after missing one and a half season due to injuries, as well as initial hiccups after returning to the game.
Big figures of the Eagles like Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman wanted him back in Philadelphia. But 28-year-old Bradford may have to prove his worth on a one-year contract to grab a huge money deal in the future.
Players and NFL executives have a split opinion on Bradford, as reported by NJ.Com.
