Sam Bradford wants Eagles to trade him
Now that the Philadelphia Eagles have traded up to the second pick of the first round to draft North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz, veteran quarterback Sam Bradford wants out. He has requested a trade and is skipping the voluntary offseason workout program. The Eagles haven't granted permission to seek a trade. "As they were making this plan, it would have been nice if they had told him about it," said Tom Condon, Bradford's agent, to ESPN. "It's his right to demand a trade and he wants to be traded." Condon has told Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. "Not too surprised," Condon said. "He knew how Sam felt. Sam made it very clear to them, he was adamant when they informed him last week about the trade up to No. 2. He told them he was not very happy about it. He made that very clear. So this comes as no surprise." "Basically, our contention is that the team could have used the draft picks on offensive and defensive players for this season, to win this season. If the plan was to build for the future, where does that leave Sam this year?" Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
