Sam Bradford, Eagles agree to two-year extension

The Philadelphia Eagles have re-signed quarterback Sam Bradford. He’s agreed to a two-year, $36 million deal with $22 million guaranteed.

Bradford was a priority for new head coach Doug Pederson. If Bradford decided to leave, their reported Plan B included Chase Daniel, who Pederson had during his Kansas City Chiefs tenure.

With this new deal, Bradford will have made $114 million through nine seasons. He signed a rookie deal worth $78 million, which was the last No. 1 overall pick to get paid an excessive amount of money, before the league made realistic draft contracts.

While he’s getting paid a lot, he’s just 25-37-1 in his career and has never took a team to the playoffs.He was 7-7 with the Eagles last season, which was his best record at .500. All of his other seasons, he had worse than .500 records.

Bradford reportedly had an offer on the table for $25 million per season shortly after he was traded to the Birds. He said, when approached about the reported offer, that the offer may have gotten lost in the mail.

He was acquired by the Eagles in March 2015 in a trade with the St. Louis Rams – who are now the Los Angeles Rams. There were several draft picks involved in the deal, as well, with the Rams receiving a second-round pick in 2016 and fourth-rounder, which came in 2015.

The Eagles received a fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

With the Eagles under former head coach Chip Kelly, he was inconsistent and looked like he was scared to be hit after coming off back-to-back torn ACL’s with the Rams.

He injured his shoulder against the Miami Dolphins. Mark Sanchez came in and played horrible, as the Birds were blown out 90-31 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.

He returned against the New England Patriots – which was their biggest win of the season. The Eagles won that game 35-28.

Bradford went 346-of-532 for 3,725 yards with 19 touchdown passes. He also threw 14 interceptions and had five 300-plus passing games.
