Report: No real progress in contract talks between Bradford, Eagles
The Rams and quarterback Nick Foles are talking about a contract extension with both sides saying that they’re motivated to get a deal done that keeps Foles in St. Louis beyond the 2015 season.
The Rams acquired Foles in a trade with the Eagles for Sam Bradford, who has also reportedly had some conversations about a new deal with his new team. According to Albert Breer of NFL Media, there have been “a few talks” about an extension but “no real progress” has been made at this point.
It would be surprising if any real progress was made at any point in the near future. Bradford hasn’t taken part in a full practice for the Eagles because of his rehab from last year’s torn ACL and he’s going to need to do that (to say nothing of actually running the team’s offense in a game) before the Eagles are going to commit any significant future money to him.
By the same token, Bradford has no reason to sign a deal coming off of two seasons ruined by torn ACLs when he can boost his value by playing and staying healthy during the 2015 season. With the potential to use the franchise tag to buy more time to hammer out a deal next year also part of the picture, it seems likely that everyone will let things play out for a while before diving into a longer agreement.
