Eagles coach says Sam Bradford still starter despite draft pick

Jay Glazer on why Sam Bradford wants to be traded

It has been quite the two-day period for the Philadelphia Eagles when it comes to their quarterback position. After 2015 starter Sam Bradford reportedly told the team he wanted to be traded (which was met by one potential new team, the Denver Broncos, saying they didn't think Bradford would get traded anywhere), the Eagles went with their expected pick of quarterback Carson Wentz with the No. 2 pick in Thursday's first round of the NFL Draft.

While the jury is still out about which quarterback will be the starter when the Eagles open their 2016 regular season against the Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia's new head coach is saying that things are staying the same for the time being. Doug Pederson told NBC affiliate WCAU-TV that Bradford, as of now, is still the starter:

I've said all along Sam's our guy, he's my guy, and he's a part of the Philadelphia Eagles, and it's just unfortunate where we are right now.

Pederson went on to say he isn't worried about Sam Bradford saying that he will not attend any workouts or practices since the current events are all voluntary. Pederson also mentioned that he hasn't spoken to his current starting quarterback since before the trade demand was made.

The Eagles acquired Sam Bradford in a trade last year with the now Los Angeles Rams. Bradford went 7-7 as a starter and missed two games with a shoulder injury and dealing with a concussion. The team traded up to the second overall pick with the likelihood of taking a quarterback, either Wentz or Jared Goff (who was taken first overall by the Rams, who also traded up in the first round).
