Chip Kelly shocked the football world by trading incumbent starter Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams for Sam Bradford. Once reality set in and the NFL draft passed without a rookie quarterback, it became clear that Kelly fully intends to hand the reins of his offense over to the former Oklahoma Sooner and 1st overall pick. Bradford's career has been derailed by injuries -- most notably back-to-back ACL tears that have kept him off the field for more than a year and a half. Bradford's unfulfilled potential hasn't deterred the Eagles from projecting Bradford as an ideal fit for their system. Kelly believes that if Nick Foles (pedestrian talent) and Mark Sanchez (maddening inconsistency as a Jet) can field top 5 offenses in his system, what might Bradford accomplish if he stays healthy? There are plenty of questions facing Bradford this year, beyond the obvious health concerns. The Eagles lost their top receiver, and have turned over the running game to DeMarco Murray. Bradford's fantasy outlook ranges from a top 10, every week starter to someone that ends up on waivers after just a few weeks. (May 16)

Eagles | Sam Bradford to be tagged? (Fri Jul 24, 05:41 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford could either be franchise tagged or transition tagged if he has a successful season and the Eagles don't want to give him a long-term contract. If Bradford were transition tagged, he would be able to sign with other teams, but the Eagles would have the option to match their offers.

Our View: Why in the world would a team make a high-priced investment in Bradford? He's got to prove that he can stay healthy and start playing up to his potential in the pros. If (big if) that happens this season, then perhaps the Eagles would consider investing in him for the future.

Eagles | Sam Bradford plans to play at camp (Wed Jul 22, 03:30 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is expected to be ready to participate once training camp begins. Bradford has been rehabilitating his knee after suffering a second anterior cruciate ligament tear in as many years.

Our View: Bradford may be ready, but the team would be wise to ease him back after two ACL injuries. Mark Sanchez could get plenty of first-team reps for the Eagles while Bradford is eased into action.

Eagles | Sam Bradford plans to play out deal (Mon Jul 20, 07:30 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford plans to play out the final year of his contract and will not sign a contract extension at this point.

Our View: Bradford's contract is one we won't see in the NFL ever again. His rookie deal (with $50 million guaranteed) was put in place before the rookie salary cap. Now, rookie quarterbacks end up with much less guaranteed money. Bradford may end up retiring if he can't stay healthy this year. Multiple knee injuries have derailed his time in the NFL. He's got a $12.9 million cap number this year and is hoping that a fresh start with the Eagles may jump-start his career.
