Eagles' Sam Bradford Wants Out of Philadelphia

Vincent Schilling

Cherokee quarterback  Sam Bradford says he wants out of Philadelphia due to insulting trades made by his current employer, the Philadelphia Eagles, according to reports from FOX Sports’s Mike Garafolo and ESPN’s Adam Schefter. 

Soon after the news, Bradford's name began trending on Twitter.

On Twitter, ESPN's Schefter stated:

“Eagles have been informed Sam Bradford wants to be traded and he will not be showing up for their off-season program any longer, per source.”

Last week, the Eagles gave up a slew of draft picks to garner the No.2 overall pick in Thursday’s NFL Draft, a move that many saw as an insult to Bradford. Reports are that the Eagles will use the pick a quarterback, either Jared Goff  of University of California, Berkeley or Carson Wentz of North Dakota State Bison.  

According to Schefter, the draft move has Bradford “hot” and he "wants to show everyone who's best."

The stance from Bradford has caused a massive reaction on Twitter, and prompted  Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman to say the team would not move Bradford. He said on Twitter:

“Let me be clear, Sam Bradford is our starting quarterback. The #Eagles will not trade Bradford.”

Yahoo News refutes the ESPN claim on their website with the following statement:

Sam Bradford has not asked for a trade from the Philadelphia Eagles and has no plans to do so, two sources close to the quarterback have told Yahoo Sports.”
