Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford wants to be traded and will stop attending the team’s off-season workouts, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Bradford re-signed with the Eagles last month, agreeing to a two-year, $36 million contract with $26 million in guaranteed money. Last week, the Eagles traded up to the No. 2 spot in the NFL draft, where they are widely expected to select a quarterback.

The Eagles acquired Bradford in a trade with the Rams before last season. In his first year in Philadelphia, Bradford threw for 3.725 yards, with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions for an 86.4 passer rating in 14 games.

After trading up in the draft, Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said Bradford would still be the team’s starting quarterback.
