Coach Chip Kelly said Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez are openly competing for the starting quarterback job.
If all goes according to plan, Bradford will win the job with ease. The Eagles dealt Nick Foles and a second-round pick for Bradford and his $13 million salary. He's not going to sit behind Sanchez if healthy. But Bradford has yet to participate in any 11-on-11 drills with his new team, allowing Sanchez to take all the first-team reps. Sanchez has reportedly looked impressive in his second year in Kelly's system. The plan is for Bradford (torn ACL) to be cleared for the start of camp. Jun 23 - 1:22 PM

Sources tell NFL Network the Eagles have had preliminary contract talks with Sam Bradford.

Bradford is entering the final year of his rookie contract. It shouldn't be a surprise the Eagles are interested in an extension after giving up their starting quarterback (Nick Foles) and a second-round pick for the right to pay Bradford $13 million this season. It's also not a surprise the two sides haven't made any "real progress" as Bradford's latest knee rehab appears to be going rocky.

Sam Bradford (ACL) said if he's not ready for 11-on-11 drills by training camp it means "something has gone terribly wrong."

Bradford has been limited to 7-on-7 work during OTAs. Training camp opens on August 2, giving Bradford about six weeks to recover. The injury-prone Bradford has appeared in just seven games since the start of 2013.

Sam Bradford (ACL) remained limited to 7-on-7 work Tuesday.

Unlike fellow ACL patient Carson Palmer, Bradford hasn't graduated to 11-on-11 work yet. There have also been whispers that he remains hobbled and is limping around -- observations that have been discounted by other reporters. When asked if Bradford will be ready for 11-on-11 when training camp opens, Chip Kelly said, "God, we hope so."

During a Tuesday visit to Eagles OTAs, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora described Sam Bradford (ACL surgeries) as "still hobbled," and noted that Bradford did very little work during team drills.

Meanwhile, Mark Sanchez strung together another impressive practice. Bradford is reportedly donning a "large brace on his leg," and is "limited in his ability to work on the field." La Canfora says to "hold off on inking Bradford in" as the Eagles' Week 1 starter. La Canfora wrote that Bradford "doesn't appear all that close to being ready to play an actual game." While Bradford remains the favorite, it's become increasingly clear that the Eagles' quarterback job will be open to a true competition entering training camp.

Sam Bradford (ACL surgeries) looks "a little more mobile" during the Eagles' current set of spring workouts.

Some Eagles observers were concerned with Bradford when offseason workouts began, but his on-field movement has progressed and his "throws were mostly sharp." Per beat writer Jeff McLane, Bradford "still couldn’t definitively say that he would be 100 percent ready for the start of training camp." Bradford remains a favorite target of ours for late-round quarterback drafters.

Sam Bradford (ACL) took part in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday.

This has been the plan for the past several weeks. Bradford rotated first-team reps with Mark Sanchez before sitting out team drills. Questions have arisen over the state of Bradford's surgically-repaired left knee, but he's still making enough progress to suggest he'll be ready for training camp. The Eagles have staked a ton on Bradford's shaky health.
Jun 2 - 1:28 PM

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Sam Bradford's surgically repaired left knee doesn't appear "remotely close" to full health.

It's our fourth Bradford post of the day. This is just reporter Jeff McLane's take, but he believes "the specter of (Mark) Sanchez under center (in Week 1) becomes more and more of a reality" every day that Bradford's rehab drags on. Neither Bradford nor coach Chip Kelly has attached a date to Bradford's return, though both are trying to project confidence that he'll be ready for training camp. McLane reports Bradford was "clearly favoring" his left leg in Thursday's practice. Bradford has the potential to be a fantasy bargain this season, but he needs to get his health in order over the next two months.
May 28 - 10:15 PM

Asked Thursday whether he'd be ready for Week 1, Sam Bradford (ACL) passed on making a guarantee.

"I think as long as we continue to progress and we don't have any setbacks, I feel very comfortable with where my knee is at right now," Bradford said. We can understand why Bradford wouldn't guarantee he'll be ready to go, but it's still mildly notable. His words came the same day the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that he's still walking with a "pronounced limp." Bradford "scaled back" his OTAs participation a few weeks ago, but participated in individual drills Thursday. Coach Chip Kelly believes he could be ready for 7-on-7s next week.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Sam Bradford (ACL) was walking with a "pronounced limp" on Thursday.

Bradford and the Eagles have continued to insist that he's progressing on schedule, but this is a player whose health can never be taken for granted. Bradford will supposedly resume 7-on-7 work next week. Coach Chip Kelly has declined to put a timetable on Bradford's return to full health, but it's clear the team's expectation is that he'll be ready for training camp.
May 28 - 6:13 PM

Sam Bradford (ACL) is expected to resume 7-on-7 work next week.

Bradford's rehab has been a hot topic, but there's no reason to believe he'd had any complications. He'll be a full 12 months removed from his latest tear when training camp opens and should be a full go then. At the controls of Chip Kelly's extremely passer-friendly scheme and armed with a soft early-season schedule, Bradford is an excellent late-round QB target.
May 28 - 12:09 PM

The Eagles are holding Sam Bradford (ACL surgeries) out of team drills at OTAs.

He's being "limited" early in the offseason, as expected, while Mark Sanchez is running the first-team group. Coach Chip Kelly is expected to provide an update on Bradford's recovery on Thursday. During last month's draft, Kelly stated Bradford's rehab was "on schedule." Bradford threw during individual drills in early May, but was curiously absent from practices the following week.
May 27 - 8:27 PM

Former Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo remains confident in Sam Bradford.

It's notable because Bradford's poor play and injuries in St. Louis essentially cost Spags his job. "Trust me when I tell you he’s got all the skills," said the current Giants defensive coordinator. "I know he's going to do great things [in Philadelphia]." Michael Vick, Nick Foles and even Mark Sanchez were all statistically productive in Chip Kelly's scheme. If Bradford can find his peak form and sustain health, he's a great bet for top-12 fantasy QB status this season.
May 14 - 9:33 AM

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.
