The Denver Broncos do not expect to acquire quarterback Sam Bradford from the Philadelphia Eagles and are pursuing other options at quarterback, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Denver does not expect Philadelphia to trade Sam Bradford to Broncos or to any team, per sources. Broncos now mulling other QB options.

The saga thus continues, as Bradford has requested to be traded out of Philadelphia following the team’s acquisition of the No. 2 pick in today’s NFL Draft and team executive Howie Roseman saying that the pick would be used on a quarterback. Though it has been said repeatedly that whomever the Eagles draft would sit for a year behind Bradford, the former No. 1 pick still wants out of the City of Brotherly Love.
But it looks like Denver will not be Bradford’s new home, and the Broncos’ search for a top quarterback will continue. The team needs one desperately after losing Peyton Manning to retirement and Brock Osweiler to free agency, and current options in Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian aren’t long-term solutions.
At this point, unless talks with the San Francisco 49ers regarding Colin Kaepernick are revitalized, just who will be under center for Denver in 2016 is anybody’s guess.
