Summary

To hear Sam Bradford tell it, the last few months have been frustrating and anger-inducing. He went so far as to request a trade after the Eagles drafted Carson Wentz with the 2nd overall pick. After the initial absurdity of his request passed, and he realized there were ZERO alternative destinations, he's tried to turn things around and make nice. We'll see how that turns out, particularly with a rabid fanbase that has never really embraced Bradford from the start. This is a guy who has made $78 million in six seasons despite winning just 25 games! This is a guy who is the worst starter in his division but was rewarded with a new 2-year, $36 million contract with $22 million in guaranteed money. Yet he's offended the team is building for the future. Okay, then. From a fantasy perspective, Bradford is an uncompelling asset. Even if he starts all 16 games, Bradford has lost the one advantage he had under Chip Kelly -- play call frequency. A season ago when the Eagles were among the top teams in plays per game, Bradford ranked 24th. This year, he'll be lucky to finish the season as a low end QB2. (May 22)

Eagles | Carson Wentz off to fast start (Tue May 31, 05:48 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has displayed an NFL-caliber arm and the ability to make every throw on the route-tree during practice, and beat writer Matt Lombardo believes Wentz seems to be ahead of QB Sam Bradford when it comes to mastering head coach Doug Pederson's offense.

Our View: Nobody should really be surprised by this. Wentz has incredible work ethic and is known as a football junkie. The rookie may win the starting job in Philadelphia in Week 1. To quote Dennis Green, Bradford is who we thought he was....but we won't let him off the hook. Neither can the Eagles as they're on the hook for $22 million in guaranteed money over the next two years for the painfully average veteran QB.

Eagles | Philly teammates on board with Sam Bradford (Fri May 27, 02:23 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins said the Eagles aren't harboring any ill feelings toward QB Sam Bradford after he skipped the start of the offseason program and demanded a trade. 'But I think right now, barring anything crazy or anything changing over the next few months, I think everybody is very comfortable with Sam and looking forward to him falling into that role,' Jenkins said.

Our View: What else are they going to say? Publicly they can stand by him, but privately you have to wonder if teammates are mad about a guy who has never really had to compete in the NFL complaining about now having to do so. The Eagles could sit Carson Wentz for his entire rookie season, but we think he's the better QB and could step into the starting lineup if (when?) Bradford struggles.

Eagles | No QB order set in Philly (Wed May 25, 02:33 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said that the order set with QB Sam Bradford as the No. 1, QB Chase Daniel as the backup and QB Carson Wentz as the third guy is 'probably not the right impression.' 'But the other thing that -- as coaches -- that you've got to establish is a culture of competition. This is one of the most competitive industries in the world and so, to say that there's not competition, that's just the furthest thing from the truth.'

Our View: Reich needs to be cautious with what he says so Bradford doesn't get upset. Of course no order has been set. Bradford SHOULD be the starter for Week 1 as the team has indicated they'd like Wentz to sit and devlop. However, if Wentz shows that he's better in camp then we could see their future franchise QB take over early this year...perhaps even Week 1.

Eagles | Zach Ertz not worried about QB situation (Thu May 19, 10:13 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz said he isn't going to run his routes any differently for QB Sam Bradford than he would for QB Carson Wentz.

Our View: Ertz topped 800 yards last season and could approach 1,00 this year. Hopefully he'll see more red zone work though, as he has to improve on his two touchdowns to be a real fantasy factor.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews has rapport with Bradford (Thu May 19, 12:58 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews flew to Oklahoma in March to work with QB Sam Bradford, and Matthews is OK with Bradford's trade request earlier in the offseason. 'If I'm cool with it, then everybody should be cool with it,' Matthews said. 'Look, if I want to be here, and I'm happy with it, and we can go out there and just compete, that's all I want to focus on. That's all that matters.'

Our View: Matthews led the team in targets (128), yards (997) and touchdowns (8) with Bradford under center, so we're sure he's happy to have him back. We think he could be a solid WR2 this year.
