According to Garafolo, the Eagles are making a “strong push” to sign Bradford to a multi-year contract before the start of free agency.
Garafolo’s sources indicated the Eagles’ believe it’s a “very strong” offer for Bradford, and one that would exceed his expected range on the open market.
The Eagles have been clear that they would like to retain Bradford. However, they do have some alternative options in the event Bradford attempts to push for the best possible deal in free agency.
Bradford, 28, played out the final year of his six-year, $78 million contract that included $50 million guaranteed and is now in position to be one of the best available quarterbacks in this year’s free agent market.
In 2015, Bradford threw for 3,725 yards while completing 66 percent of his passes to go along with 19 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 12 quarterback out of 37 qualifying players.
