Eagles QB Sam Bradford was asked about his future with the team, but offered a noncommittal response about being back in Philadelphia next year.
“I’ll get into that in the offseason. I’ll think about that in the offseason,” Bradford said, via Les Bowen of Philly.com. “I’m not too worried about what’s going to happen three or four months down the line. We’ve got a big game this weekend against Arizona, that’s what I want to focus on.”
Earlier in the week, HC Chip Kelly said that if he didn’t believe Bradford could be their long-term solution at quarterback, he wouldn’t have pulled the trigger on the trade with the Rams.
“It’s great to hear those things,” Bradford said, when asked a second time about Kelly’s comments. “But I don’t think that really means a whole lot or is going to change the way I approach things. I’m sure I’ll pay more attention to that stuff in the offseason.”
Bradford did, however, say that he enjoys being in Philadelphia.
“I do like it here. Obviously, it’s a lot different than anywhere I’ve ever been before,” said Bradford. “But you know what? I really do enjoy it here.”
Bradford, 28, is in the final year of his six-year, $78 million contract that included $50 million guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $12.985 million for the 2015 season before becoming an unrestricted free agent next year.
This season, Bradford has thrown for 2,664 yards while completing 63.2 percent of his passes to go along with 14 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 17 quarterback out of 37 qualifying players.
