The Denver Broncos are interested in acquiring Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford, Mike Klis of 9 News reports.

The Eagles have not shown any indication they plan to trade Bradford, though Klis reports Broncos general manager John Elway has spoken with Eagles general manager Howard Roseman about Bradford.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday morning that Denver no longer expects the Eagles to deal Bradford to the Broncos or any team, and that the team has moved on from hoping for a deal.

The Broncos have been exploring quarterback options since Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler departed for Houston in free agency.

Bradford and the Eagles agreed to a two-year, $36 million contract extension in March, but the quarterback demanded a trade earlier this week after Philadelphia traded for the No. 2 draft pick, which they will presumably use to select a quarterback. Roseman said after the draft pick trade that Bradford would remain the starting quarterback in Philadelphia.

Bradford completed 65% of his passes in his first season with Philadelphia last year and threw for 3,725 yards with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
