Over the weekend, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reported that the Philadelphia Eagles 'upped' their offer to impending free-agent quarterback Sam Bradford, saying that the team was 'trying hard' to finish off an extension.
Benjamin Allbright of AM1340 in Denver, who has beaten team and national insiders to stories previously, said today that he expects the Eagles to announce an extension with Bradford soon.
Expect Bradford and #Eagles to announce contract agreement soon.— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) February 29, 2016
This tweet, whether done on purpose or by accident, is rather vague. It's unclear whether Allbright is saying that the Eagles have agreed to a deal with Bradford and are close to announcing it, or if he's saying that the two sides are finishing off an extension.
In Garafolo's report from the weekend, he suggested that the Eagles were offering Bradford a rather lucrative extension.
The terms of the offer aren't available, but sources indicated the Eagles' believe it's a very strong offer for Bradford -- one that's at the top of his expected range on the open market and one that should help get him under contract before that market opens on March 9.
If his report was accurate, Allbright suggesting that the two sides either have agreed to a deal or are close to agreeing to a deal would make sense.
Bradford, 28, threw 19 touchdowns to 14 interceptions in his first season with the Eagles. After missing two games due to both a concussion and a shoulder injury, Bradford threw eight touchdowns and four interceptions in the month of December, leading many to believe that his rather cold first half of the season was more due to him shaking off rust after missing the entire 2014 season than that being indicative of him as a player.
