Over the last few weeks or so, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford has garnered a ton of criticism for not showing up to practice and demanding a trade, mostly due to the team trading up in the draft to select a quarterback.
It seems that criticism has gotten to him as Bradford has shown up ready to work.
It was reported Monday morning by ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio that Bradford had pulled his trade demands off the board and wants to start working again. He will show up to all offseason workouts and wants to fulfill his contractual duties with the team.
“I’m excited to be back on the field today with my teammates and coaches,” Bradford said. “The business-side of football is sometimes a necessary consideration. My attention and efforts are focused on the participation in and preparation for a championship season: I am committed to my teammates and the Eagles organization for nothing less.”
If Sam Bradford is now truly committed and wants to work with the team, he should compete for a starting job with second overall pick Carson Wentz. Bradford should be able to help the young quarterback get better, no matter who the starter is going into the 2016 season.
