According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford is demanding a trade after their recent move up in the draft..
Well, the Philadelphia Eagles had to know this was coming with Sam Bradford when they moved up to the 2nd overall pick to draft a quarterback, but Sam Bradford wants a trade…
What does this have to do with the Broncos, they can’t afford Bradford, can they?
Well…it might be ‘out there’ but no more so than acquiring Colin Kaepernick, per a report from Pro Football Talk…
“Meanwhile, the Broncos and Jets are still looking for a starting quarterback. And with Bradford’s $11 million signing bonus already earned, another team could acquire him on what would be a two-year, $24 million deal. For the rest of 2016, it’s a base salary of $7 million.
Yes, $7 million. The same amount the Broncos want to pay Colin Kaepernick. And the same amount the Jets would like to pay Ryan Fitzpatrick.”

It seems like the Broncos would at least have to consider this option, given the fact that Bradford may honestly be the best quarterback on the market right now and his remaining salary is something they could afford. His trade value also can’t possibly be high, given the fact that the Eagles have absolutely no leverage here.
I don’t know if Denver wants to try and add that salary for 2017, but things can always be re-worked and I’m not so sure John Elway wouldn’t at least give a call to the Eagles here to see about what their asking price is. If the Broncos could get Bradford for a day three pick, I see no reason why they shouldn’t at least consider it.
