EAGLES RUMORS & GOSSIP

It is no secret that the Philadelphia Eagles wanted a fresh start after Chip Kelly was released before the 2015 season even ended. However, is Doug Pederson the answer that Jeff Lurie was looking for?

Perhaps the Eagles Should Re-Sign Sam Bradford AND Draft a QB

Photo: Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Should the Eagles keep Sam Bradford or not?  If they don’t keep him that would mean they absolutely have to draft a QB, right?  And if they do keep him, then we can focus on other positions in the draft, right? While that logic makes sense, the best thing may be to re-sign Bradford and draft a QB. Initially, I was on the “Sam-should-go”...
