Sam Bradford is staying in Philadelphia.
On Tuesday afternoon Adam Schefter of ESPN broke the news, announcing that the Eagles had signed Bradford to a new two year, $36 million deal with $26 million in guaranteed money.
Last offseason Bradford was traded to the Eagles from the Rams (The St. Louis Rams at the time). The trade sent Bradford to Philly and Nick Foles to St. Louis. Bradford made $13 million last season in the final year of his contract, a six year, $78 million deal that came from the Rams trade.
In 2015 Bradford had career-highs in passing yards (3,725) and started 14 games for the Eagles after playing in only seven games in the 2013 and 2014 seasons for the Rams. He missed two games with a shoulder injury, but surprised his critics by staying healthy for the majority of the season.
Bradford will enter a new offense with a new head coach in Philly, Doug Pederson. It was rumored that Bradford was seeking a long-term contract, and now the 28 year old quarterback has a chance to prove himself worthy of that.
In games Bradford started last season the Eagles went 7-7.
