Sam Bradford could lose his starting position by skipping Eagles offseason workouts

The Philadelphia Eagles did exactly what everyone thought they were going to do during the NFL Draft last night. The Eagles selected Carson Wentz with the second overall pick, which I’m sure has further pissed off starting quarterback Sam Bradford.

Grading The Philadelphia Eagles Draft

The Chip Kelly era is thankfully over and the Eagles look to turn around the franchise. This draft was crucial to make a step forward in the rebuilding process. How did they do? 1st Round: Overall Pick #2 Carson Wentz QB NDSU. This was extremely predictable. The Eagles were very aggressive in trying to get their QB of the future and hopefully did that despite giving up a decent haul...

Sam Bradford could lose starting job if he continues hold out

Once the Philadelphia Eagles traded up to the second spot in the 2016 NFL Draft, starting quarterback Sam Bradford showed his hand big time. The recently-extended signal caller held out of the team’s off-season activities last week and reportedly requested a trade from Philadelphia.

Eagles scouting report: 251st overall pick linebacker Joe Walker

  Embed from Getty Images   The Eagles wrapped up their 2016 NFL Draft in ironic fashion, drafting linebacker and former Oregon Duck Joe Walker with the 251st overall pick. The Walker selection made it an even split for the Eagles with their eight draft picks (four on offense, four on defense). Whether or not the Walker pick was a subtle slight at Chip Kelly is something...

Report: Sam Bradford won’t take calls or texts from Eagles

Sam Bradford is so mad. Presumably, at least, but let’s paint the picture: Bradford has a two-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles and wants to be the starter, yet had to watch Thursday in the NFL draft as the team traded up and got Carson Wentz. A No. 2 pick isn’t going to sit long on the bench, if at all. To make matters worse, the Eagles haven’t shown any inclination...

Eagles haven’t contacted Carson Wentz since trading up to #2

It seemed simple: The Los Angeles Rams, who traded with the Tennessee Titans to get the No. 1 overall pick, were going to take either Jared Goff or Carson Wentz with the newly acquired pick. Then, the Philadelphia Eagles would take whichever quarterback was available with the No. 2 pick. But Wentz spoke with reporters Wednesday, and now it doesn’t seem so clear. Wentz said Wednesday...

Eagles should be drafting for speed and explosion, not quarterback…

I don’t get the universal love affair with the Eagles’ moving the mountain of Sinai to draft a potential franchise QB.

And very few of them relate to the QB position. We are a slow team in modern terms. Our position...
