When the Eagles signed Bradford in 2009, he was a raw prospect, coming out of the University of Washington as a five-star recruit.
He had just signed a one-year, $1.8 million contract, and his first two seasons didn’t go well.
Bradford was sacked 29 times and had an 8-22 record.
By the end of his sophomore season, Bradford was on the mend.
Bradford started the next three seasons, but then suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the final preseason game of the 2010 season.
He spent the next two seasons on injured reserve and never made the team.
Bradford had a chance to become a star in the NFL as a rookie.
He was a high-character, hard-working kid who could throw the football and was a great teammate.
The Eagles signed him to a one year deal worth $3 million, and the Eagles never looked back.
What we learned: After losing quarterback Carson Wentz to retirement, Chip Kelly is now looking to add an elite talent to his roster.
He is hoping that Bradford can help lead the Eagles to a playoff spot in 2017.
Bradford is an intriguing player, but he is coming off a career year that was very similar to Wentz’s.
Wentz struggled early in his career, but his struggles were mostly self-inflicted.
Bradford should be able to bounce back from his first season back to the NFL.
