And what was Philly thinking when they gave him this contract considering all his injuries?
Good luck with that.. no one is gonna pick up the ridiculous contract of that China Doll. Beyond that, Philly needs him as a bridge to Wentz in the '17 season.
His fiance has some set of cans! Wowsers!
Tyrod Taylor is fine for now.
He wants out of Philly? Get line buddy!
Bradford is going start losing significant signing bonus money if he holds out into the season, the Eagles aren't going to trade him when it means $11M in dead money per year.
The Cowboys should get him. Glass Shoulder Romo is not long for the field.
Maybe Raiders owner Mark Davis will take a chance on him
Sam Bradford forgot that he is Sam Bradford when he made that request. A zero tool QB with a giant contract.
all it takes is one decent team to get a significant qb injury and suddenly bradford becomes a very valuable trade asset. they were smart for not letting him walk as he has value and they had leverage if they couldnt work out the trade for no2.
either way they wont do shit this year.
They WAY overpaid for him and now he wants out. What a joke.
The NFL is, I think, a good example of the problems associated with socializing the costs and benefits of things.
If the owner of an NFL team is guaranteed pooled money from the league, he is pretty much guaranteed not to hemmorage much money even if he makes terrible choices in players and gives them ridiculous contracts. You are also prevented from "killing the team" by salary caps. So, the big downside has been socialized out of the equation. I think maybe one or two teams lost money in the last few years.
Meanwhile, if the contracts pay off and the players do well, they benefit. So even "losing" isn't losing.
Historically, it has been the case that removing the consequences of foolish behavior tends to increase the frequency of it. Once able to buy into the League (via actual risk taking behaviors) they are then able to simply play the game for ego. They gamble on longshots if the alternative is to wait longer for the gratification. but are prevented from real disaster (akin to poor people playing the lottery)
I can't imagine that the Eagles wouldn't be terrible again this year.
