PHILADELPHIA (AP) Sam Bradford has agreed to a two-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Bradford joined the Eagles last season and compiled some career bests, but the team finished 7-9 and coach Chip Kelly was fired. But new coach Doug Pederson and the team’s front office decided to keep the injury-prone free agent quarterback.
Bradford, 28, was acquired by the Eagles in a trade a year ago with the Rams that sent Philadelphia’s incumbent quarterback, Nick Foles, to St. Louis. Bradford started 14 games and threw for a career-high 3,725 yards, the fourth-highest yardage total in franchise history. Bradford’s 346 completions and his career-best 65.03 completion percentage both were Eagles single-season records.
