Sam Bradford has his money, and for now he’s the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, so why should he be worried?
Bradford is signed for the next two seasons, with $18 million of his $22 million guaranteed coming this year — meaning the Eagles can move on from Bradford after selecting a quarterback.
“It’s not the first time I’ve gone through a situation like this. I think I learned a long time ago to not worry about anything that I can’t control. I have no control over that,” Bradford said Tuesday, when asked about speculation that the Eagles might trade up in the draft to get a potential franchise quarterback.
“If it happens, then it’s something that I’ll deal with when it happens. But if it doesn’t happen, then there’s really not a lot of sense in wasting time and thought and energy on that,” he said.
Bradford said he hasn’t asked Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Roseman or head coach Doug Pederson about their draft day plans, and doesn’t plan too.
