Eagles Pushing To Get Deal In Place With Sam Bradford By Tuesday?

Les Bown of Philly.com, citing a source close to the situation, reports that the Eagles are making a “serious effort” to re-sign QB Sam Bradford before the start of free agency.

According to Bowen, there has been a lot of buzz Monday about the two parties being close to an agreement.

However, Bowen adds that if they’re unable to get an agreement in place Tuesday, it’s likely Bradford and his reps will want to wait and see what’s available to them during the legal tampering period this weekend.

The Eagles met with Bradford’s agent, Tom Condon, at the Combine last week, and Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports recently reported that Philadelphia upped their offer to Bradford during the session.

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.

Bowen seems to think the Eagles’ offer will ultimately be “well below” the $20 million a year that had been mentioned previously.

Should the Eagles have to go with a Plan B option, Bowen mentions that they could consider taking a quarterback at No. 13 overall and consider signing Chiefs backup QB Chase Daniel

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.
