Broncos reportedly reached out to Eagles about potentially acquiring Sam Bradford


With Sam Bradford and his agent Tom Condon seemingly bunkering down on their request to have the quarterback moved out of Philadelphia this offseason, potential destinations have been discussed as to where he could lend his services. Since prior to any of these recent developments flared up, the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos have been mentioned, given the departures of Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler. Denver already landed a former Eagles quarterback earlier this offseason in Mark Sanchez. According to Mike Klis, who covers the Broncos for the NBC affiliate in Denver, they may be doing some digging on another. 


While Condon has taken to the airwaves and media to voice his client's displeasure with the current situation in Philadelphia, it would seem that the Eagles front office is well aware of their position from a bargaining standpoint. Having Bradford on board as a starter for next season has played into the organization's plans all offseason and they have been vocal about it for months. Even after acquiring the 2nd overall pick to draft either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff, the Eagles reiterated they would prefer Bradford as their starter in 2016. 

As long as the Eagles maintain their stance, they will likely be able to set their own market if they did decide to move Bradford. The veteran quarterback will need to get on the field to have teams interested in him going forward and not many teams will succumb to the current financial framework of his contract as of now. While it's evident that the two sides won't be 'playing nice' throughout this ordeal, the Eagles ultimately hold the upper hand.
