Eagles, Sam Bradford start contract extension talks
According to NJ.com, Kelly said that Bradford’s agent, Tom Condon, has had discussions with the organization about a new deal for Bradford, presumably ending any talks that he might be traded.
The St. Louis Rams traded Bradford to Philadelphia for quarterback Nick Foles in March. The Eagles will receive a fifth-round pick (No. 145) in this year's draft and sent St. Louis a 2015 fourth-round pick (No. 119) and a second-round pick next season.
Bradford, 27 is in the final season of a six-year, $78 million deal he signed when the Rams made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft. He is scheduled to make $12.98 million in base salary next season and has a $16.58 million salary cap hit.
In his five NFL seasons, Bradford has missed 31 of 80 possible games, tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in both knees in each of the past two seasons.
He has a 18-30-1 record as a starter, completing 59 percent of his passes for 11,065 yards with 59 touchdowns and 38 interceptions.
