Eagles Sign QB Sam Bradford To A Two-Year, $36M Deal

Update:

According to Andrew Brandt, $22 million of the $26 million guaranteed in Eagles QB Sam Bradford‘s two-year extension became fully guaranteed upon signing.

Bradford will carry a base salary of $7 million in 2016 while having an $11 million signing bonus, per Brandt. Additionally, he could earn up to $20 million next season with a playoff victory.

According to Tom Pelissero, Bradford’s base salary for 2017 will be $13 million without potential incentives. He will also have $4 million of his contract fully guaranteed that year, with another $4 million guaranteed for injury.

Though Brandt notes that the Eagles will have a second-year option, Pelissero adds that the Eagles would risk $9.5 million in dead money by cutting him.

The Philadelphia Eagles announce that they’ve signed QB Sam Bradford to a two-year deal on Tuesday.

  • Adam Schefter reports that Bradford receives a two-year, $36 million deal with $26 million guaranteed.
  • According to Rand Getlin, Bradford’s contract can be worth as much as $40 million.

Last night, Les Bown of Philly.com reported that the Eagles were making a “serious effort” to re-sign Bradford before the start of free agency, and were hoping to get a deal done Tuesday that would prevent him from meeting with teams during the legal tampering period.

Bradford, 28, played out the final year of his six-year, $78 million contract that included $50 million guaranteed and was 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.
