Sam Bradford’s agent rips Eagles, confirms QB wants a trade

Sam Bradford

Tom Condon, the agent for Sam Bradford, has confirmed that the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback wants to be traded.

Condon told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio on Tuesday that the Eagles gave Bradford no indication that they were looking to draft a quarterback early in the first round when Bradford signed a two-year deal with the team.

“As they were making this plan, it would have been nice if they had told him about it,” Condon said. “It’s his right to demand a trade and he wants to be traded.”

While Howie Roseman has committed to Bradford as the starter for the 2016 season, Condon says the Eagles GM “was not too surprised” when Bradford asked out of Philly.

“He knew how Sam felt,” Condon said. “Sam made it very clear to them, he was adamant when they informed him last week about the trade up to No. 2. He told them he was not very happy about it. He made that very clear. So this [trade demand] comes as no surprise.”

Even if the Eagles want Bradford to be their starter this season and possibly next, they will not be putting the best possible team around him by using a high first-round pick on a quarterback.

“Basically, our contention is that the team could have used the draft picks on offensive and defensive players for this season, to win this season,” Condon continued. “If the plan was to build for the future, where does that leave Sam this year?”

Condon is encouraging the Eagles to get something in return for Bradford before they turn the team over to whichever quarterback — Carson Wentz or Jared Goff — they draft with the No. 2 overall pick. As of now, it sounds like the asking price from the Eagles is too high.

In the meantime, Bradford has no intention of showing up to offseason workouts.
