PHILADELPHIA — 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.
The top overall choice in the 2010 draft by the Rams, Bradford was the Offensive Rookie of the Year. But knee injuries curtailed his progress. He missed seven games in 2013 and all of the 2014 season.
