Sam Bradford to return to Eagles on Monday
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford has informed the team he will return on Monday, ending his standoff after demanding a trade, reports NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Bradford has missed the first two weeks of the Eagles’ 10-week off-season conditioning program after making the trade demand. The 28-year-old quarterback asked to be traded after the Eagles moved up for the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft, which they used to select quarterback Carson Wentz.
After the trade, Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said Bradford would remain the team’s starting quarterback, but Bradford was still displeased with the transaction.
Bradford’s agent, Tom Condon, issued the following statement on his behalf on Monday:
“I’m excited to be back on the field today with my teammates and coaches. The business side of football is sometimes a necessary consideration. My attention and efforts are focused on the participation in and preparation for a championship season: I am committed to my teammates and the Eagles organization for nothing less.”
In his first year in Philadelphia, Bradford started 14 games and threw for 3,725 yards with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
