For the moment at least, it appears Sam Bradford is not going to get his wish.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Broncos have checked with the Eagles about their wantaway quarterback, but are convinced they’re not going to trade him at all.
While it remains to be seen how willing the Eagles are to fight to keep Bradford around when he doesn’t want to stay, it would at least force the Broncos to look at other options.
So far, those include trying to beat a paycut out of Colin Kaepernick, settling for Brian Hoyer, or just drafting one at No. 31 (or with some other pick).
None of those seem to be perfect options, which is probably why they’ve been talking up Mark Sanchez lately.
Because while the Broncos clearly want to find another quarterback, it’s apparently not Bradford, at least at the price the Eagles must want.
