Bradford has impressed coaches thus far in offseason workouts and despite his history of injuries, the former No. 1 draft pick has many of the traits in which Eagles coach Chip Kelly admires.
"Peyton Manning switched teams because of an injury,'' Kelly said. "Drew Brees switched teams because of an injury. So we went down that path."
Bradford has one year left on his rookie contract, and is scheduled to make $12.9 million this season. He has not played in an NFL game since 2013.
Barring an injury,
Bradford has also been fully cleared to take part in practice and will not wear a brace on his knee. Bradford has sustained two ACL tears in his knee over the last two seasons.
Bradford is recovering from his second ACL tear in his knee over the last two seasons. The Eagles begin training camp Aug. 2 and it appears Bradford will be able to fully participate in 11-on-11 drills.
While the two sides have met a few times, no significant progress has been made. Bradford is set to enter the final year of his rookie contract and he can become a free agent after the 2015 season if no deal is reached.
If Bradford is not ready, then that would signal a disaster as far as he's concerned.
"I think if I'm not ready for 11-on-11 by training camp, then I think something has gone terribly wrong," Bradford said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. "That's the plan."
Bradford has been unable to operate in team drills during OTAs and minicamp. He has done some 7-on-7 work with reports indicating that Bradford has done fine when throwing the football.
Bradford last took an NFL snap in 2013 when he tore his left ACL, the same one he tore again last preseason.
