Philadelphia Eagles news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 22:10:06 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was acquired to be the team's quarterback, not as a trade pawn. Bradford will only sign an extension with the Eagles with a no-trade clause, as he really wants to play in the system of head coach Chip Kelly and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
Fantasy Tip: If Bradford could stay healthy he might be a very, very interesting fantasy option in 2015. He has all the tools to be a tremendous quarterback in this league, but he has had a difficult time staying healthy in his career. In Philly he could be very dangerous if he lives up to the potential which made him the No. 1 overall pick in 2010.

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota could be selected by the Philadelphia Eagles if the team could make trades with the Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans, according to one draft rumor. The rumor states the Eagles would trade QB Sam Bradford to the Browns for the 19th overall pick, then the Eagles would trade DT Fletcher Cox, LB Mychal Kendricks, the 19th overall pick and the 20th overall pick to the Titans for the second overall pick where they would select Mariota.
Fantasy Tip: There have been rumors that the Eagles will try to trade up in the first round for Mariota, but the team will need to move up significantly to have a chance at him. Mariota likely would have a good chance to win the starting job if he joins the Eagles, but would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point.

Philadelphia Eagles restricted free-agent RB Chris Polk's tender offer has been rescinded by the Eagles, according to a source. Polk will become an unrestricted free agent and allowed to sign with any team.
Fantasy Tip: Polk probably will receive some interest from teams in free agency but likely will only be a backup for his next team. His fantasy value will be determined by which team he joins, but he probably will not be more than a late-round pick in all leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has reportedly not had meaningful contract talks regarding an extension. Bradford is in the final year of his rookie deal. The quarterback is open to signing an extension if he is not traded.
Fantasy Tip: The lack of urgency to extend Bradford's deal has given way to rumors that Bradford may indeed be traded in order for the Eagles to pursue someone like Marcus Mariota in the NFL Draft. If Bradford does end up starting, he'll need to stay healthy before warranting starter consideration.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Tim Tebow has shown improvement at quarterback after working with throwing coach Tom House, and the Eagles picked up on that two years ago when facing Tebow when he was with the New England Patriots in training camp practices. Tebow will compete for a roster spot in camp this summer, and he'll be working out at quarterback and not some other position, according to vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz.

The Philadelphia Eagles and QB Sam Bradford have yet to make significant progress on a contract extension sparking speculation the quarterback might be traded again, although head coach Chip Kelly insists Bradford won't be used as a bargaining chip.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford's fantasy outlook is a little murky, as it isn't entirely clear where he'll be playing in 2015. If he secures the starting job he is a QB2 in most standard fantasy leagues with a lot of upside in Chip Kelly's high-octane offense.
