Eagles | Philly teammates on board with Sam Bradford

Fri, 27 May 2016 11:23:59 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins said the Eagles aren't harboring any ill feelings toward QB Sam Bradford after he skipped the start of the offseason program and demanded a trade. "But I think right now, barring anything crazy or anything changing over the next few months, I think everybody is very comfortable with Sam and looking forward to him falling into that role," Jenkins said.

Fantasy Tip: That stance could change quickly if Bradford struggles out of the gates in 2016. Bradford has been too injury-prone and inconsistent to use as anything more than a fantasy backup so far in his career.

Eagles | No QB order set in Philly

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:33:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said that the order set with QB Sam Bradford as the No. 1, QB Chase Daniel as the backup and QB Carson Wentz as the third guy is "probably not the right impression." "But the other thing that -- as coaches -- that you've got to establish is a culture of competition. This is one of the most competitive industries in the world and so, to say that there's not competition, that's just the furthest thing from the truth."

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Doug Pederson confirmed that Bradford was the starter recently after the quarterback ended his brief holdout. It's likely just coach speak from Reich, and we fully expect Bradford to enter Week 1 as the starter. Bradford's leash could be short, though, since Pederson has an affinity for Daniel and Wentz has the skills to be serviceable in the NFL quickly. Bradford, or whoever is starting for Philly in 2016, should be firmly in the fantasy backup conversation.

Eagles | Zach Ertz not worried about QB situation

Thu, 19 May 2016 19:13:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz said he isn't going to run his routes any differently for QB Sam Bradford than he would for QB Carson Wentz.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has TE1 potential, but consistency has been an issue throughout his career. The quarterback situation shouldn't impact his value too much, and Ertz's upside is worth taking a chance on if you wait until later in your draft to address the tight end spot.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews has rapport with Bradford

Thu, 19 May 2016 09:58:20 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews flew to Oklahoma in March to work with QB Sam Bradford, and Matthews is OK with Bradford's trade request earlier in the offseason.

"If I'm cool with it, then everybody should be cool with it," Matthews said. "Look, if I want to be here, and I'm happy with it, and we can go out there and just compete, that's all I want to focus on. That's all that matters."

Fantasy Tip: Matthews had a decent 85-997-8 season last year, but he was really hamstrung by the absence of a legitimate target opposite of him. Rueben Randle and Chris Givens should help deter double coverages from him. Matthews is a high-end WR2 in fantasy, while Bradford's fragility makes him a low-end QB2.

Eagles | Sam Bradford works with first-team

Wed, 18 May 2016 09:47:31 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford worked with the first-team offense during organized team activities Tuesday, May 17, with QB Chase Daniel taking repetitions with the second-team and QB Carson Wentz with the third-team. "I've actually talked to Sam since he's back," head coach Doug Pederson said, "and I told him: My feelings haven't changed. He's my guy. He's the No. 1 guy. I want him to embrace that and not look backward. Look forward."

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to enter the season as the starter, but he may not have a long leash if he struggles, especially since Pederson has a history with Daniel and has high praise for him. Regardless, Wentz is the QB of the future in Philly. Bradford is nothing more than a midrange fantasy backup, but he can put up low-end QB1 numbers in the right matchups.

Eagles | Philly's QBs split reps

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:27:06 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QBs Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz all received the same amount of repetitions during practice Tuesday, May 17. Head coach Doug Pederson said Bradford will receive more reps once training camp begins since he will be the starter.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will enter training camp as the starter, but the team is splitting snaps because they want Wentz to learn the offense. Bradford should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues in 2016. Wentz likely will not have much value in standard leagues but should be an attractive option in keeper leagues.

Eagles | Carson Wentz does not expect tension

Fri, 13 May 2016 13:39:58 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said he expects to have a good relationship with QB Sam Bradford and does not expect any tension in the quarterback room. "I think the relationship with him, and I believe with the other quarterbacks, will be great," Wentz said. "It will be a really competitive atmosphere. Hopefully, we'll learn together, grow together and really push each other." Wentz said he does not care what his role is as long as the team is winning.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to begin the season as the starting quarterback, but Wentz could take over the job at some point if Bradford struggles. Bradford probably would be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues, while Wentz could be an attractive option in keeper leagues.

Eagles | Sam Bradford reporting Monday

Mon, 09 May 2016 05:42:22 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford informed team personnel he'll report to offseason workouts Monday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford looked great early on last season before things began to unravel. He's extremely fragile and hasn't been consistent doing more than short-range throws. It's a make-or-break year, but he's a risk as a low-end QB1 and a better backup in fantasy.

Eagles | Sam Bradford may report soon

Fri, 06 May 2016 16:55:52 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford may report for offseason workouts in the next week or two, according to LB Connor Barwin, who has recently talked with Bradford.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is upset with the current quarterback situation with the Eagles, but the team has said that he will be the starting quarterback this season. Bradford played well at times in 2015 but is a risky option for owners because of his injury history. He likely will be a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues in 2016.

Eagles | Sam Bradford not talking with coach

Sun, 01 May 2016 14:05:12 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has not talked with head coach Doug Pederson since asking for a trade, according to Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to be the starting quarterback in 2016, but he is still upset that the team traded up for QB Carson Wentz. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see what the Eagles will do at quarterback. Bradford likely would be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues if he is with the team Week 1.

Broncos | Denver unlikely to pursue big-name QB

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 20:28:33 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford are unlikely to be pursued by the Denver Broncos after the team selected QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but Denver could still add a veteran quarterback at some point.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is no lock to start as a rookie, and even if he does beat out Mark Sanchez for the starting gig, he would be a low-end QB2.

Broncos | DEN moving on from Sam Bradford

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 06:45:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is an option the Denver Broncos are moving away from because the Broncos don't believe the Eagles are willing to trade him, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is a mid-to-low QB2 with the Eagles but would receive an uptick with a move to the Broncos.

Broncos | Moving closer on Sam Bradford deal

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 19:51:47 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford remains a trade target of the Denver Broncos, and a league source said Wednesday, April 27, that the Broncos "are in" on the quarterback. Broncos general manager John Elway has spoken with Eagles general manager Howie Roseman about Bradford, although the team has not expressed a willingness to deal the signal caller.

Fantasy Tip: A move to Denver would be giant for Bradford's fantasy appeal, as he would have a better set of wide receivers in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and a little more long-term stability. Stay tuned.

Broncos | Sam Bradford talks not in depth

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 12:27:07 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has not been discussed at length with the Denver Broncos. Denver has called regarding the quarterback, but no compensation has been discussed. The Eagles are still not inclined to move Bradford.

Fantasy Tip: Trade talks for Bradford could heat up over the next few days during the NFL Draft, but at this point a trade seems unlikely. Wherever he plays, Bradford should not be in the QB1 discussion.

49ers | San Fran not interested in Sam Bradford

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 09:31:36 -0700

San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said "there's been no talk internally" about trading for Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford. Bradford's agent, Tom Condon, has confirmed that Bradford has requested to be traded. Bradford's former coach, Chip Kelly, is the new 49ers coach.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has already made it known he has no interest in playing for Kelly again, so a trade to San Fran appears highly unlikely. With Philly trading up to the No. 2 overall spot to likely take a quarterback, Bradford is essentially a lame-duck QB in 2016. Even if, say the Denver Broncos traded for him, Bradford would be more in the range of QB2 territory.

Eagles | Sam Bradford not shy of competition

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 09:13:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford's agent, Tom Condon, said Bradford isn't afraid of competition. He wants out because the Eagles' quarterback situation has a pre-determined outcome where the No. 2 pick starts when ready.

Fantasy Tip: It would be interesting if Bradford landed in Denver, and that scenario could be the best place for his fantasy value. He'll be a QB2 in any locale for now.

49ers | Sam Bradford shuns San Francisco

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 17:50:02 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is not interested in playing for the San Francisco 49ers and head coach Chip Kelly, according to NFL Network's Jeff Darlington.

Fantasy Tip: The 49ers are one of the few remaining teams with an iffy quarterback situation. Colin Kaepernick could still stay with the 49ers, but it's not a guarantee. For now, none of Bradford, Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert should be in the QB1 discussion, although Kaepernick and Bradford are high-end backup options.

Jets | Sam Bradford not of interest to Jets

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 17:39:17 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will not be pursued by the New York Jets, according to NFL Network's Jeff Darlington.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Fitzpatrick's status remains in limbo, but New York apparently wants to avoid a potential Bradford trade altogether. Fitzpatrick is a better option anyway from a fantasy perspective, and he's a borderline QB1 if he stays in the Big Apple.

Broncos | Denver asked about Sam Bradford

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 19:03:05 -0700

The Denver Broncos asked about Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford, according to a prominent league source. According to a league source, the asking price from the Philadelphia Eagles was too high.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Bradford will be the starting quarterback in Philadelphia, but there is also a new twist and turn in the soap opera every day. Stay tuned.

Eagles | Sam Bradford still Philly's starter

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:41:23 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is still the Eagles' starting quarterback and the Eagles still support him, general manager Howie Roseman reiterated Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen how long Roseman's sentiments will last. The Eagles are expected to take one of Jared Goff or Carson Wentz with their second overall pick. Bradford could have a better chance of being traded after that pick is made. As stated earlier, Bradford is still in backup quarterback territory no matter where he plays.

Eagles | Sam Bradford facing fine

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 11:29:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will be fined if he does not show up for minicamp. If he misses all of training camp, he'll surrender 25% of his signing bonus, and more if his absence extends into the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: This situation could get ugly if Bradford stands his ground. Drafting Carson Wentz could open the door more for a possible trade, though. It's unlikely that Bradford will be in QB1 territory wherever he plays in 2016.

Eagles | Sam Bradford requests trade

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 08:19:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has informed the team Monday, April 25, he's seeking a trade and will not show up to their offseason program any longer, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: There is some buzz that the Denver Broncos could become an option. He would have some upside in this scenario with the weapons at his disposal. However, he's still a QB2 in fantasy you could use on a starter's bye week.

Eagles | Sam Bradford willing to stay in Philly

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 21:02:32 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is upset about the team's trade for the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but he is prepared to stay and prove he is a franchise-caliber quarterback, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: While Philadelphia is expected to draft a quarterback, Bradford would still likely be the starter in 2016 if he remains with the Eagles. In that scenario, he would be a quality fantasy backup.

Eagles | Sam Bradford likely wants trade

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 13:16:07 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is expected to ask to be traded, according to a source, despite executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman stating that Bradford is still the starter. It was previously reported that Bradford is upset with the Eagles' trading up in the NFL Draft for what will likely be a quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: There is certainly merit to Bradford being upset in this circumstance. He was re-signed by the Eagles only to see them trade up for what they deem to be a future franchise quarterback. This situation will need to be monitored over the next few months. As has been stated before, neither Bradford nor the Eagles' likely rookie quarterback is worthy of starter consideration from a fantasy perspective.

Eagles | Sam Bradford upset about trade

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 16:19:50 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was not happy after the Eagles traded up for the No. 2 overall pick, with which they are expected to draft a quarterback. Bradford is mad and wants to show everyone who is best, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Although, executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said Bradford is still the starter.

Fantasy Tip: We'll see what happens when the Eagles draft Carson Wentz or Jared Goff, although most expect it to be Wentz. It will likely be Bradford and Wentz competing for the starting job, with Chase Daniel competing for the backup spot. None of them are immediate QB1s, however.

Eagles | Philly to pay high price for quarterbacks

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 12:09:12 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QBs Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and likely one of North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz or California QB Jared Goff will cost the Eagles more than $42 million. Bradford is due $18 million, Daniel is due $7 million and Went or Goff will be due at least $16 million, including a signing bonus.

Fantasy Tip: It's been an interesting offseason for Philadelphia. They re-signed Bradford, brought in Daniel and then decided they still didn't have their franchise quarterback. Their quarterbacks will be deep, but their wallets will be shallow. Through it all, drafting any of them as a starting fantasy quarterback is ill advised.

Eagles | Sam Bradford remains the starter

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:38:20 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will remain the starter after the team acquired the No. 2 overall draft pick Wednesday, April 20, according to Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman.

"Let me be clear, Sam Bradford is our starting quarterback," Roseman said Wednesday. "We told Sam that. We intend to support him and the moves we made this offseason we believe will give us a chance to compete this season."

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is fragile and has never been able to consistently throw it deep, but there are pieces around him that could make him a decent bye-week replacement in the right matchup. Bradford is a low-end QB2 in fantasy.

Eagles | Sam Bradford staying put

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:17:12 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford isn't on the trade block after the team acquired the second overall draft pick Wednesday, April 20, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: If the Eagles select Carson Wentz or Jared Goff, it's likely they'll look to sit him out for a year or two before throwing him into the fire. The Eagles also picked up Chase Daniel in the offseason, which means the likely rookie pick would be the third-stringer. In this instance, Goff or Wentz would only have value in dynasty leagues.

Eagles | Sam Bradford playing for his future

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 20:27:35 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will likely be getting a one-year look from the team, as he is guaranteed only $4 million in the second year of his current deal. He got better as the season progressed in 2015, but the team visited the top quarterbacks in this year's draft, and inked QB Chase Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract as a backup plan. The team can get out of Bradford's deal if it doesn't work out for $22 million total, and some team is likely to sign Bradford for $4 million in 2017 if he is released, offsetting a $4 million loss.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford will be playing for a payday in a new offensive system and with Daniel breathing down his neck. One of them will be around in 2017, and one will be wearing a different uniform. For now, Bradford is the starter and has some fantasy upside since he will be continually playing for a job from here on in.

Eagles | Sam Bradford the starter in Philly

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 12:31:38 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is the starting quarterback heading into the 2016 season, with QB Chase Daniel as the No. 2, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense given the monetary commitment to Bradford, but Bradford's lack of production last year and injury history are red flags, and he could have a short leash. Pederson likes Daniel a lot, so he could see a chance before long. Regardless, neither QB is more than a midrange fantasy backup.

Eagles | Chase Daniel could start

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 14:26:57 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Chase Daniel will be given a chance to take away the starting quarterback job from QB Sam Bradford, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford re-signing didn't necessarily guarantee him his starting job back. While Daniel may not be viewed as talented a quarterback as Bradford, new head coach Doug Pederson still really likes him going back to their days with the Kansas City Chiefs. Whoever starts for the Eagles shouldn't be viewed as more than a backup fantasy quarterback, though.

Eagles | Sam Bradford to have more freedom

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will have more freedom at the line of scrimmage to change plays, and head coach Doug Pederson said he believes this will help Bradford improve in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Draft Bradford as a QB2, but he could be a matchup-based starter in DFS formats.

Eagles | Sam Bradford deal has leeway in year two

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 10:18:47 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford's contract guarantees him $8 million in the second year, but $4 million of it is guaranteed for injury, and the other $4 million has offsets. If he struggles in 2016, the Eagles can get out of his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is a QB2 in fantasy.

Eagles | Sam Bradford gets guaranteed cash

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 22:48:46 -0800

Updating a previous report, the new deal for Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is worth $35 million, with $26 million guaranteed. With his new deal he'll make $18 million in 2016 and could make as much as $20 million in 2016 with playoff wins. Bradford will carry a $12.5 million cap hit for the team in the upcoming season.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford struggled in his first season in Philadelphia, and as has been the case in his career, he missed time due to injury in another non-playoff season. He led his team to a 7-7 record in 14 games played last season, and that is actually the best record of his career.

Eagles | Sam Bradford contract details

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 16:05:43 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford's two-year deal includes an $11 million signing bonus and a $7 million salary in 2016. Guaranteed money includes $4 million of his 2017 salary and another $4 million for injury.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't the worst day for Bradford, who signed a relatively hefty deal despite an underperforming 2015 season and an extensive injury history. Again, he should still not be drafted as your starting fantasy quarterback.

Eagles | Philly could still add quarterback

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 15:14:49 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford just signed a two-year deal, but that doesn't mean the Eagles won't consider signing or drafting another quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Even if the Eagles do sign or draft an additional quarterback, Bradford will still be the starter. The depth behind him in Mark Sanchez and Thaddeus Lewis isn't the best, though. Nevertheless, don't draft Bradford as your first fantasy quarterback.

Eagles | Sam Bradford agrees to deal

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 13:27:36 -0800

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford and the Eagles agreed to a two-year, $36 million deal Tuesday, March 1, including $26 million guaranteed, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It didn't take long for the Eagles to announce a deal with Bradford following the tag deadline. Bradford will stay in the City of Brotherly Love under new head and former NFL quarterback Doug Pederson. He disappointed early on last season, but Bradford played better over the latter part of the 2015 season. He will be in a new offense and does have an extensive injury history, however, and should not be regarded as a starting fantasy quarterback.

Eagles | No tag for Sam Bradford

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 13:13:11 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford did not receive a franchise tag or transition tag before the deadline Tuesday, March 1. Bradford and the Eagles are still working on a long-term deal, though, so he won't necessarily enter free agency.

Fantasy Tip: The free-agent period begins next week, so Philadelphia and Bradford don't have much time to hash out a long-term deal. If a deal is not agreed upon, Bradford will likely be the biggest name among quarterbacks in free agency. He should still be considered a backup fantasy quarterback, though.

Eagles | Philly's offer to Sam Bradford increases

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 12:25:57 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford's agent met with the Eagles this week at which point the Eagles upped their offer on a long-term deal for Bradford. The goal is to complete a deal before Bradford hits free agency, but a deal is not expected to get done until at least the anti-tampering period, however.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has already expressed interest in returning to Philadelphia, and the Eagles obviously want him back. If Bradford doesn't work out, the Eagles would have to rely on Chase Daniel or sign another quarterback. Even if he's re-signed, though, Bradford should not be viewed as a QB1.

Eagles | Philly to draft a QB?

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 13:26:53 -0800

With Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford set to become a free agent March 9, NFL Media draft expert Mike Mayock thinks the Eagles should make drafting a quarterback a priority this spring.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles are in transition after firing head coach Chip Kelly and bringing in Doug Pederson, who is expected to run a much different offense. Bradford was pretty underwhelming in 2015 but could improve in a new system. However, he shouldn't excite fantasy owners too much wherever he goes, making him nothing more than a reliable backup.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford will have to agree to a deal that works for the team if he is going to be back in 2016, according to executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is coming off a relatively solid season, and if he re-signs with the Eagles, he would be a strong backup quarterback for fantasy owners.

Browns | Cleveland an option for Sam Bradford?

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 14:37:34 -0800

The Cleveland Browns could decide to pursue Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford this offseason if he becomes available. The Browns had interest in trading for Bradford last offseason, but they're under new management and have a new head coach now. Cleveland can also draft a quarterback with the second overall pick, and they are expected to do so. The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot said the Browns are open to all options.

Fantasy Tip: A move to Cleveland for Bradford wouldn't be all that ideal for his fantasy value. Sure the Browns are optimistic now with new head coach Hue Jackson, but the weapons around Bradford in Cleveland aren't strong. Either way Bradford shouldn't be seen as anything other than a mediocre fantasy backup in 2016.

49ers | SF could pursue Sam Bradford

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 14:36:14 -0800

The San Francisco 49ers could end up pursuing Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford this offseason, but the Niners must first decide what they will do with QB Colin Kaepernick. Many believe that it's unlikely that Kaepernick returns. However, new 49ers head coach Chip Kelly wasn't so high on Bradford after the 2015 season, according to former Eagles scout John Middlekauff.

Fantasy Tip: The best scenario for Bradford's fantasy value would probably be for him to remain in Philly, even though he'll be working under an entirely new coaching staff. Either way, this situation is fluid, and there will be a lot of moving parts for Bradford in 2016. He's a backup fantasy QB, at best.

Texans | Sam Bradford unlikely to Houston

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 14:28:42 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is unlikely to land with the Houston Texans this offseason, as the Texans are focused on drafting their next quarterback in the first round, according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain.

"They want to draft (a quarterback) in the first round. They're tired of using retreads. They played five this year, started four. Last year they played four and started three. So they need a quarterback, and they want one that they can develop," McClain said.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford's future is very much up in the air heading into 2016. The Eagles are under an entire new coaching staff, so they may prefer to continue on without him. Bradford is not only injury prone, but he hasn't been very consistent in his career, and he should be seen as nothing more than a backup fantasy QB in 2016.

Eagles | Sam Bradford receives endorsement

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 11:55:50 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford, an impending free agent, completed 68% of his passes and compiled a 97.0 passer rating from Week 8 on, throwing 10 touchdowns and four interceptions during that stretch, while winning four of seven starts. "It was clear at that moment that this was his team and he was going to take it over. Hopefully, we can get Sam here. I think everybody believes that he can be the quarterback and the leader that we need to take this team to a championship," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said.

Fantasy Tip: Just for comparison, Bradford passed for nine TDs and 10 interceptions during his first seven games. Bradford is a consideration for the franchise tag for the Eagles but has been one of the least durable players in the league throughout his career. Given the dearth of quality free-agent options and the lack of certainty Philadelphia can find a long-term starter at No. 13 in the NFL Draft, Philadelphia's best move might be to stick with Bradford, who should be a QB2 consideration for 2016.

Eagles | Philly could draft quarterback

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 12:46:15 -0800

If Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford does not return in 2016, the Eagles could use a high draft pick on the position and look for a quarterback in free agency to help bridge the gap until that rookie is capable of starting, in the opinion of PhillyVoice.com's Jimmy Kempski.

Fantasy Tip: There's a lot that needs to play out this offseason in regards to the Eagles' quarterback situation. The Eagles may choose to start with a clean slate at quarterback, but if Sam Bradford doesn't return then they would almost certainly sign a free-agent quarterback and/or draft a quarterback.
