Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed Sam Bradford will be with the team when the season begins.
NFL Network's Rich Eisen asked Kelly if it was safe to start selling Bradford jerseys. Kelly bristled somewhat at the question, saying, "It was safe the day after we traded for him." Bradford will need to stay healthy, but he has back-end QB1 upside in Kelly's offense. May 2 - 1:58 PM

The Washington Post reports the Browns are "hopeful" they'll come away with either Sam Bradford or Marcus Mariota on Thursday.

The Browns seem considerably more likely to get Bradford than Mariota, but it's all dependent on how the Eagles' talks about the No. 2 pick go with the Titans. Owner Jimmy Haslam is desperate for a franchise quarterback, and could push GM Ray Farmer to make a move he otherwise wouldn't make.

Appearing on Sirius NFL Radio, FOX Sports Ohio's Zach Jackson said he would "not rule out" the Browns trading for Sam Bradford.

Jackson says there's "nothing new" on Bradford-to-Cleveland, only what's already been reported. The Browns' interest in Bradford is currently one of the NFL's worst-kept secrets. Whether they execute a trade for him still remains to be seen. ESPN's Adam Schefter says the Browns won't be trading for Marcus Mariota.

According to SI.com's Peter King, the Browns believe they have a "good chance" to acquire Sam Bradford from the Eagles.

The Browns have wanted Bradford all offseason, initially offering the Rams the No. 19 overall pick for him. St. Louis balked because it wanted a quarterback, and got one when Philadelphia sent them Nick Foles in the Bradford trade. Appearing on Mike & Mike Thursday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported "people around the league" still believe the Eagles are floating Bradford as a "trade chip," most likely in talks with quarterback-needy Cleveland.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer hears the Browns would still like to acquire Sam Bradford, but notes it's "not likely to happen."

Bradford, entering a contract year, only wants to sign an extension with the Eagles. That makes a trade very difficult as the Browns aren't going to give up one of their first-round picks for a one-year rental. Furthermore, the Plain Dealer notes that Bradford's agent Tom Condon has had rocky dealings with the Browns -- he represented Tim Couch, Brady Quinn and Jordan Cameron. If Chip Kelly is going to get up for Marcus Mariota, he may have to explore other avenues.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Eagles acquired Sam Bradford "to be their [quarterback]," not as "trade pawn."

Per Mortensen, Bradford, who has one year left on his deal, will not sign a contract extension with a team other than the Eagles to help facilitate a trade. He wants to play for coach Chip Kelly and OC Pat Shurmur, who coached him as a rookie. The rumors will swirl through Thursday night, but odds are the Eagles won't have enough ammo to get up to the No. 2 pick to select Marcus Mariota.
Apr 27 - 9:41 PM

NJ.com's Mark Eckel passes along a "rumor making its rounds in NFL personnel meetings" of the Eagles trading Sam Bradford to the Browns for the No. 19 overall pick in the draft.

The Browns already offered No. 19 to the Rams for Bradford, prior to his trade to Philadelphia. St. Louis didn't accept because it wanted a quarterback, and wound up acquiring Nick Foles. The Browns are "still said to have interest" in Bradford. Per Eckel, the rumor has the Eagles then sending Nos. 19 and 20 -- plus Mychal Kendricks and Fletcher Cox -- to the Titans in exchange for No. 2 overall, where Philly would select Marcus Mariota. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Friday that Bradford currently believes the Eagles may be planning to trade him.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk the Eagles have engaged in "no meaningful talks" regarding Sam Bradford's contract.

Bradford, of course, is entering a contract year. At very least, it suggests the Eagles want to keep their options open at quarterback. ESPN's Adam Schefter and CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora have both recently stated they believe the Eagles remain in the hunt for Marcus Mariota. A source told PFT that Bradford would be unwilling to do an extension with a team other than Philadelphia, were he used as a trade chip. He is willing to sign long term with the Eagles.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Sam Bradford contemplated quitting football after his 2014 ACL tear.

Fellow former Oklahoma QB Josh Huepel reportedly had to talk Bradford out of it. This isn't exactly breaking news, as Bradford previously admitted to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he "didn't want to come back" following his latest injury. Still, the mere fact that Bradford contemplated retirement so recently sends up a red flag, particularly to teams interested in Bradford if the Eagles try to flip him in a draft-day trade up for Marcus Mariota. Since his college days, 27-year-old Bradford has undergone right shoulder surgery and two left ACL reconstructions.
Mar 30 - 1:15 AM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot believes the Browns are not done upgrading at quarterback, and expects the team to target either Oregon QB Marcus Mariota or current Eagles QB Sam Bradford.

It's no secret by now that the Browns previously tried to trade the No. 19 overall pick for Bradford, first to the Rams and (allegedly) later to the Eagles. Specifically, Cabot writes that she thinks the Browns "will try to trade up to draft Marcus Mariota, and I also think they could make another run at Sam Bradford." If the Eagles are willing to deal Bradford as rumored, they would presumably want both of Cleveland's first-round picks with eyes on getting to No. 2 overall, where Mariota is likely to be selected.
Mar 29 - 8:00 PM

Owner Jeffery Lurie said the Eagles evaluated Sam Bradford in 2010 as the "best young quarterback we'd seen...probably since Peyton Manning coming out of college."

Bradford was an absolute monster at Oklahoma, winning the Heisman trophy as a sophomore in 2008 and finishing his college career with an 88:16 TD-to-INT ratio. He was also strong for the Rams in 2010, taking home Rookie of the Year honors under Pat Shurmur -- now the Eagles offensive coordinator. Injuries have since sabotaged Bradford's career, allowing the Eagles to trade for a gamble on upside in their quest to find a franchise quarterback. If we believe Chip Kelly and Lurie, the plan is Bradford and not a pursuit of Marcus Mariota in the draft.

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio confirms the Browns offered the Rams a first-round pick for Sam Bradford.

Paolantonio got the word directly from Rams GM Les Snead. Per Snead, the Bills were also interested. With multiple confirmations of the Browns offering the Rams a first-rounder, it stands to reason they were the mystery team that offered the Eagles a first-round pick just one day after they acquired Bradford. Although the Browns are unlikely to find an upgrade on Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel at this point, they'll certainly keep looking.
Mar 24 - 7:01 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan confirms the Browns offered a first-round pick for Sam Bradford.

Per Caplan, the Browns offered their second first rounder, the No. 19 overall selection. The Browns also own the No. 12 pick. It's unclear if the offer came before or after Bradford's trade to Philadelphia. Owner Jimmy Haslam seems hellbent on finding a "franchise quarterback," but only has Josh McCown to show for it. This is something to file away in case Oregon QB Marcus Mariota falls to No. 12. Perhaps Eagles football czar Chip Kelly would then be willing to play ball with the Browns.
Mar 17 - 2:38 PM

NFL Network's Charley Casserly reports the Browns offered a first-round pick for Sam Bradford.

Per Casserly, it's unknown if the pick was offered before or after Bradford's trade to Philadelphia. Our guess is before, but it's certainly possible the Browns are the team Eagles coach Chip Kelly referred to in last week's presser. The Browns have been engaged in a quixotic quest to upgrade their quarterback position this offseason. So far, all they've managed is giving erratic journeyman Josh McCown $6.5 million guaranteed. By default, Johnny Manziel is still in the team's 2015 plans. That would likely change if they add another signal caller to their quarterback room.

Sam Bradford (ACL) is meeting with Eagles brass on Monday to "get on a new rehab track."

Eagles coach/GM Chip Kelly has been lauded for his "football science," but it will be put to the test with Bradford. Kelly has appeared to have some genuine success with keeping his players healthier than the norm, but Bradford is going on 28, and coming off of his second left ACL tear. By Week 1, it will have been 22 months since he last played in an NFL game.
