Eagles QB Mark Sanchez expects to compete for starting job


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:10 pm ET) Despite the assumption of many that the Eagles traded for quarterback Sam Bradford to make him the automatic starter, fellow signal-caller Mark Sanchez doesn't perceive the situation the same way.

Sanchez believes there will be an open competition in camp, which is why he signed a two-year deal worth $9 million to return to Philadelphia.

"Absolutely," he told NFL.com. "That's the way I understand it. ... Just talking with coach (Chip) Kelly and knowing I'm comng with the opportunity to compete for the starting job. That was important to me."

Sanchez completed 64 percent of his passes for 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions for the Eagles a year ago.


Kelly: Eagles trying to lock up QB Sam Bradford


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) The trade rumors involving Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford on draft day either proved to be false or potential deals simply fell through. Either way, Chip Kelly has announced the the team is discussing a contract extension with agent Tom Condon, according to NJ.com.

Kelly added that there was no truth to the rumors that the Eagles were seeking to unload Bradford to the highest bidder.

"We never discussed players," Kelly said.

Bradford is set to play out the final year of his rookie contract that will pay bim $12.9 million. Injuries have hampered his career. He missed all of last season after playing in just seven games in 2013.


Report: Sam Bradford included in Eagles' trade offer


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) The Eagles have included quarterback Sam Bradford as part of their potential package to move up and presumably select quarterback Marcus Mariota, NFL.com reports.

The package, which would likely include multiple-first round picks and players, would likely be with the Titans for the No. 2 pick, which would then be used to reunite Mariota with Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

Bradford, who was acquired from the Rams earlier this season, has also been rumored to have drawn trade interest from the Browns. The Eagles have also appeared open to dealing talented, young players like Fletcher Cox and Brandon Boykin if it'll help them land the quarterback Kelly covets.


Report: Cowboys not interested in trading for Browns Johnny Manziel


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) If the Browns trade for Sam Bradford or select a quarterback near the top of the draft, it would likely mean that the team is ready to cut ties with Johnny Manziel

However, the Cowboys, who considered drafting Manziel in the first round last year, wouldn't pursue a trade for the troubled quarterback. 

ESPN's Ed Werder reported that the Cowboys aren't interested in trading for Manziel. The team will stick with Brandon Weeden as backup quarterback. 


Report: Browns could acquire Sam Bradford from Eagles before the draft


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) The Browns believe they have a good chance to trade for Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford before the start of Thursday's NFL Draft, a source told Peter King of Sports Illustrated on Wednesday.

Philadelphia acquired Bradford and a 2015 fifth-round pick from the Rams in exchange for quarterback Nick Foles, a 2015 fourth-round pick and a 2016 second-round pick back in March. Bradford missed all of last season due to his second torn ACL in as many years.

St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher confirmed to reporters after the deal that the Browns tried to trade for Bradford before the Rams and Eagles agreed to a trade.

Soon after the trade was completed, Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly dispelled the notion that he will trade up for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, reiterating that Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez are his quarterbacks for 2015.

"We didn't bring Sam in here to be a [trading] chip," Kelly said back in March.

The Eagles and the Titans are expected to deliberate at some point before the draft on Thursday. If Kelly sends Bradford to Cleveland, then all signs would point toward the Eagles making a run to acquire the No. 2 overall pick of the draft for Mariota.

A team has traded up for a quarterback in Round 1 in 11 of the past 12 drafts, per Chris Sprow of ESPN.


QB Sam Bradford's college coach talked him out of retiring last year


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/29/2015) After suffering his second season-ending injury in nine months last year, quarterback Sam Bradford contemplated retiring but his former quarterbacks coach from Oklahoma talked him out of it, according to Philly.com.

Bradford, who was aquired by the Eagles in a trade in March, missed the entire 2014 season with the Rams after tearing his left ACL during a preseason game.

Josh Heupel, a former college coach, talked with Bradford after the injury and persuaded him to stay in the NFL.

"When a player goes through a big letdown, it's natural to be down," said Heupel. "I just tried to reach out to him and say, 'Hey, I still see this in you as a person and a player. I think the best is yet to come for you. You've got to get yourself healthy and get yourself back on the field and get yourself in the right environment ...'"

Heupel, who coached Bradford during his 2008 Heisman Trophy-winning season, is currently the offensive coordinator at Utah State.


Chip Kelly says Sam Bradford worth the injury risk


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/26/2015) Quarterback Sam Bradford has played seven games over the past two seasons while getting his left ACL repaired twice. Eagles coach Chip Kelly, who traded for Bradford, said he is not overly concerned about the injury risk.

"Look at our starting receiver last year [Jeremy Maclin], who had 85 catches," Kelly said at the NFL owners meetings, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Look at the year he had coming off of two ACLs.

"Look at our center. Jason Kelce had an ACL right before I got there and had a sports hernia in the middle of last season, and still made the Pro Bowl. Our left tackle [Jason Peters], who is arguably a Hall of Famer, has had two Achilles' [injuries] and is playing at an outstanding level.

"I would say it's easier for a quarterback with a knee injury [to come back] than a shoulder injury, as we went through the history of it. We didn't bring Sam in to run the ball 75 times a game. I think it's a lot easier for a quarterback with an ACL than it is for a receiver with an ACL. The history in terms of sports science right now and what doctors are doing is unbelievable."


Rams' Fisher confirms Browns tried to trade for Sam Bradford


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Rams coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Wednesday the Browns tried to trade for quarterback Sam Bradford in early March, and the compensation involved draft picks and not players, per Cleveland.com.

Fisher added the Browns did not offer the No. 12 pick in the NFL Draft, which indicates they offered the No. 19 pick. Other compensation was also discussed before the Rams traded Bradford to the Eagles for quarterback Nick Foles and an exchange of draft picks.

"There were discussions (with the Browns) late in the process,'' Fisher said. "There were never really any concrete offers per se. The misconception is that it started at the combine. It didn't. I stood up at the combine and said that Sam was our quarterback. This came well after that, several days before we initiated the trade with Nick, but there was a pick involved. There were numerous things that were discussed, different options. The compensation looked different over a period of a couple of days. I'm not going to go onto what it was, but it didn't involve  a player."

Fisher added acquiring the No. 12 pick in the draft probably wouldn't have sealed the deal.

"At that point, you still don't have a veteran quarterback," Fisher said. "Again, Nick for us was the perfect fit for us, and I have talked with (Eagles coach) Chip (Kelly) and he thinks Sam is the perfect fit, so this was a good deal. But for us, we get a younger quarterback that's won a lot of games in this league, can make all of the throws and is somewhat durable. I know he's had shoulder issues, but most everybody has.''


Report: Browns offered first-rounder for Sam Bradford


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Eagles coach Chip Kelly and Rams coach Jeff Fisher both said that a team offered a first-round draft pick for quarterback Sam Bradford

Bradford was traded from the Rams to the Eagles for quarterback Nick Foles last week.

Neither coach identified the mystery team, but in an appearance on the Michael Kay Show, former NFL GM Charley Casserly said it was the Browns. 

"I'm looking at Cleveland," Casserly said. "The information I have is that they offered a one for Sam Bradford, ok, so clearly they're aggressive in trying to get a quarterback. They've got two one's. (They) can't be sold on what (they've) got. I think they'll be aggressive in the draft."


Fisher: Rams chose Nick Foles over first round pick


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Jeff Fisher said that the Rams wanted quarterback Nick Foles so badly, they turned down a first-round pick. 

Appearing on PFT Live, the Rams coach said that the team was offered a low first-round draft pick for quarterback Sam Bradford but turned it down, because the team wanted Foles. 

“There were some discussions, yes," Fisher said, "but from our standpoint, the first-round pick — obviously it’s attractive, but you still don’t have a quarterback. It’s a late pick and then would we move up and get into position to draft one? It didn’t make sense to us,”

Fisher said that, even if Bradford agreed to a pay cut, he likely wouldn't have returned to the Rams. 

The Rams traded Bradford to the Eagles for Foles on Tuesday afternoon. Chip Kelly, Bradford's new coach, said the Eagles were also offered a first-rounder for the quarterback. 


Eagles' Sam Bradford: I'll be ready for training camp


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford told reporters he's been throwing for a few weeks, and although he doesn't have a timetable, he confirmed he'll definitely be ready for training camp, per the team's official website.

Bradford, the No. 1 overall draft pick by the Rams in 2010, was shipped from St. Louis to Philadelphia on Tuesday, just after the start of free agency. He missed all of last season due to his second torn ACL in as many years. He revealed that his recovery from his second torn ACL was "harder mentally than physically."


Chip Kelly: Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez are my QBs for 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Eagles coach Chip Kelly dispelled the notion that he will trade up for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, reiterating that Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez are his quarterbacks for 2015, per the team's official website.

Kelly also revealed that "here has been no talk with Bradford about a contract extension at this time."

Bradford was shipped from St. Louis to Philadelphia on Tuesday, just after the start of free agency. He missed all of last season after tearing his ACL in the preseason, and he's scheduled to make $13 million in 2015 -- the final year of his contract.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He has completed 58.6 percent of his career passes while racking up 59 touchdowns and 38 interceptions. The Eagles have not approached the quarterback about a new contract, CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports, leaving Bradford on track to reach free agency in 2016.

Rams QB coach is a big fan of Sam Bradford


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Rams quarterbacks coach Chris Weinke is perfectly happy with starting quarterback Sam Bradford, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Love him. Love him," Weinke said when asked about Bradford. Weinke, who has evaluated quarterbacks for a couple of seasons now, said Bradford had one of the best pro days he's ever seen. "A few years ago when Andrew Luck came out they said who would you compare him to? And I said the closest I would see is Sam Bradford."

As part of Weinke's interview process with the team, he met with Bradford for roughly three-and-a-half hours. It wasn't really a formal meeting, though, it was more so the two could get to know eachother. 

Bradford has reportedly been granted permission to seek a trade, but it doesn't appear Rams' ownership wants to part with the 27-year-old quarterback. 


Reports conflict on Bills' interest in Sam Bradford

Rams' Jeff Fisher downplays possible trade rumors for QB Sam Bradford


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) The Rams have reportedly been looking into possible trade options for quarterback Sam Bradford. However, coach Jeff Fisher said Friday he does not believe a deal will be made, according to Cleveland.com.

"I was surprised to hear that," said Fisher. "That's inaccurate. No, I mean. We talked about what our plans are for him."

Fisher also said Bradford is their guy heading into the 2015 season. 

"They know that we've been without our first round pick and starting quarterback," Fisher said of the Rams' faithful. "When we've had him, he's 5-2-1 in our division. And we weren't very good when we got here, so we're counting on him. I'm betting on him and if that doesn't happen, then we'll win games with somebody else."


Report: Browns interested in trading for Rams QB Bradford


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) With the Browns' quarterback situation in flux at the moment, there is considerable interest within the organization in acquiring a starting-caliber option this offseason.

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Browns are interested in trading for Rams quarterback Sam Bradford. The goal would be to acquire Bradford by only having to give up a second- or third-round pick.

However, the report also states that Bradford has let the Rams know he would not like to be traded.

The Browns are also reportedly interested in quarterback Josh McCown, who was recently cut by the Buccaneers.


Fisher: Rams not letting Sam Bradford seek trade


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said that QB Sam Bradford is not seeking a trade. 

Two days after reports surfaced that the Rams had given Bradford's agent permission to speak to other teams, Fisher addressed the rumor. 

Speaking at the Indianapolis scouting combine on Friday, Fisher said that the previous reports were "inaccurate". 

While he doesn't forsee dealing Bradford, Fisher added that the team will look to add quarterback depth in the offseason. "I don’t know what that’s going to look like,” he said. “It could be a veteran, could be a draft pick."


Rams QB Sam Bradford has permission to seek trade


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has permission to request a trade, and his agent will speak with other teams this offseason, reports CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Because the Rams may have a high asking price for Bradford, the team may prefer to restructure his deal, which could be the most likely outcome, according to La Canfora.

In response to La Canfora's report, general manager Les Snead said "deleting him (from the roster) is not the answer," per the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Bradford, the No. 1 overall draft pick by the Rams in 2010, is coming off his second torn ACL in as many years, and is scheduled to make $12.98 million in base salary in 2015, the last year of his contract. Releasing Bradford would save the team $12.98 million of Bradford's $16.6 million cap charge. Bradford has a career 58.6 completion percentage with 11,065 yards and 59 touchdowns.


Rams' Sam Bradford had say in offensive coordinator hire


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2015) When Rams coach Jeff Fisher made the decision to promote Frank Cignetti from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator, he said quarterback Sam Bradford played a role in the promotion, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"I had a lengthy discussion with Sam, yes, prior to making the decision," Fisher said. "It was part of the information gathering process. Sam was very forthcoming. He had some firm opinions. I really enjoyed and appreciated his input."

Fisher added that he expects Bradford to be ready for the 2015 season and the plan is for him to compete for the starting role, so the team can have quality options if Bradford suffers another season-ending injury.

"It's not as much from the standpoint of challenging Sam," Fisher said. "It's to have options. We don't know what that looks like right now. We don't know if that's draft, if that's free agency, or what that looks like. But when we line up in September, we'll have somebody there."


Rams wants to restructure Sam Bradford's contract


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/8/2015) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is scheduled to make $12.98 million in base salary in 2015, the last year of his contract. With Bradford coming off his second torn ACL in as many years, the Rams want to restructure the deal, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The paper suggests the Rams could reduce Bradford's base salary "while potentially putting in incentives that could allow Bradford to recoup much of that money." Releasing Bradford would save the team $12.98 million of Bradford's $16.6 million cap charge.

Coach Jeff Fisher said immediately after the season that Bradford will face competition for the starting job from "somebody that's not in the building right now." That excludes backup quarterback Shaun Hill, an impending free agent.


Rams QB Sam Bradford will have to compete for starting job


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/31/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said quarterback Sam Bradford will have to compete for the starting job in 2015 "with somebody that's not in the building right now." Serious knee injuries ended each of Bradford's last two seasons, and the team wants to restructure his contract, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Fisher did not get specific on the quarterback competition. Backup Shaun Hill is set to hit free agency.

"What that looks like, I can't tell you right now -- from a draft standpoint or from free agency," Fisher said. "But [Bradford] will be competing. We have some work to do obviously, from a contractual standpoint, but I'm confident we'll sort some things out."

Bradford said his rehab is going well, and he threw on the side at practice last week.


Rams' Sam Bradford doubted comeback after second knee injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is currently rehabbing from his second torn ACL in as many years, but has had doubts about returning to the game.

Bradford told reporters Tuesday there was a part of him that was done with football after tearing his ACL in August just before the start of the season. A phone call with current University of Oklahoma offensive coordinator Josh Heupel helped to get him on the right track mentally.

Bradford still believes St. Louis is the best place for him and he still has a lot to prove.

He has only played two full seasons in the league since being drafted No. 1 overall by the Rams in 2010. He has a career 58.6 completion percentage with 11,065 yards and 59 touchdowns. 

No timetable has been set for Bradford's return to the field, but the team will be more deliberate with their rehab during the offseason.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(9/10/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford underwent surgery Monday for his torn ACL, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He suffered the injury during the preseason and will miss the entire season.
