Bradford threw for 115 yards while completing 14 of 19 passes in Thursday's preseason win over the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

After throwing just one pass during the Eagles preseason opener, Bradford saw much more time on Thursday, playing the entire first half. He didn't have any big plays but played relatively mistake free football, leading the team to a 10-0 lead at half. Look for Bradford to see extensive time once again when the Eagles take on the Colts next week, as the offense continues to work out the kinks in preparation for the regular season.

Bradford and the other offensive starters may play into the second quarter of Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bradford is expected to play at least one full quarter but should be out of the game well before halftime. He seemingly has the starting job locked down, and the Eagles have now turned their attention to the rest of the offense, trading for WR Dorial Green-Beckham on Tuesday. Although he won't be available for Thursday's game, Green-Beckham still has time to push for a key role before Week 1.

Bradford completed his only pass attempt for a three-yard gain in Thursday's preseason opener against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Bradford should get more playing time in the second and third preseason games, but his performance may be irrelevant. The Eagles' pecking order for 2016 seems to already be determined, with Bradford as the starter, Chase Daniel as the backup and rookie Carson Wentz serving as the No. 3. Daniel and Wentz both struggled in Thursday's game.

Bradford participated in the Eagles' first OTAs of the season Tuesday, CSN Philly's Dave Zangaro reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said before practice Tuesday that Bradford is "the guy," according to Zangaro's report. Despite the Eagles' aggressive move in this year's Draft to move up and draft fellow quarterback Carson Wentz, it appears Bradford will enter training camp as the team's primary option at quarterback. If he plays well enough to earn the job, he'll have 16 games lined up ahead of him to prove he's worth a long-term contract in the near future, either from the Eagles or another team.

Bradford reported to the Eagles' team facility for Monday's voluntary workout, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bradford missed two weeks of the Eagles' offseason program already due to a reported trade request, but returned to the team's facility ahead of this week's workouts. With OTAs slated to begin next week and no immediate landing place for Bradford elsewhere, the quarterback is expected to participate in Philadelphia's on-field drills while also thawing his relationship with the team this week. That comes as good news for the Eagles, as they've consistently stated Bradford is their desired starting quarterback in 2016, when he could mentor rookie No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz in the process.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Bradford is missing out on valuable experience at offseason workouts and meetings, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Displeased with his team's decision to trade up for fellow quarterback Carson Wentz, the 28-year-old Bradford is skipping voluntary activities while reportedly asking for a trade. Denver was mentioned as a possible destination prior to the draft, but any deal could prove difficult after Bradford signed a two-year, $36 million extension during the offseason. Furthermore, the Broncos selected QB Paxton Lynch in the first round, significantly decreasing the odds that the team would have interest in Bradford. Though seemingly still viewed as the likely starter, Bradford finds himself facing significant pressure, with the Eagles having also signed Chase Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract in March. With such a crowd in the team's quarterback room, Bradford feels that he's merely biding time in Philadelphia while the team tries to replace him. Although he's correct, it's probably in Bradford's best interest to make peace with the unusual situation.

Mike Klis of 9News relays that the Broncos reportedly reached out to the Eagles regarding a possible deal for Bradford.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, which Klis was unable to confirm with the Broncos, the Eagles' asking price was said to be too high. Meanwhile, NJ.com echoes the notion that the Eagles aren't inclined to give Bradford away at this stage, but given that the team is about to acquire another high-profile QB in the NFL draft, we suspect that the trade speculation surrounding Bradford won't go away any time soon. For now, the Eagles continue to maintain that Bradford remains their starter in advance of the 2016 season.

Bradford was not on hand Monday for the Eagles' latest round of voluntary organized team activities, philly.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, ESPN's Adam Schefter relayed Monday that Bradford has asked the Eagles to trade him, with the QB indicating that he didn't plan to participate in any more optional work with the team. Bradford's stance is motivated by the Eagles decision to trade up to No. 2 overall in this week's NFL draft, where the team is expected to land either Jared Goff or Carson Wentz. For his part, Executive Vice President of Football Operations Howie Roseman maintained that the Eagles view Bradford as their starter in advance of the draft. "I want to reiterate our support for Sam Bradford and go back to our statements last week - that Sam is our starting quarterback," Roseman declared Monday. "His agent and Sam know how we feel about him. These workouts are voluntary. We look forward to seeing Sam again in the near future." In addition to Bradford, the Eagles also roster Chase Daniel -- who signed a three-year $21,000,000 contract with the team in March -- and once the team's future franchise QB is drafted and then signed, there would certainly be a glut of financial resources devoted to the position. Ideally, the Eagles won't have to rush their new QB to the field, but unless Bradford has a change of heart, we suspect that the team might at least consider dealing him (and his hefty contract) to a QB-needy team such as the Broncos, Jets or 49ers.

Bradford has informed the Eagles that he wants to be traded and will not participate in their offseason program any longer, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bradford's request for a trade comes after the Eagles traded into the draft's No. 2 slot, where they're widely expected to select another quarterback. That situation would cast a shadow over Bradford's starting position, something he evidently wouldn't appreciate after signing a two-year, $36 million extension with the team earlier this offseason. As a result, Bradford hopes to be dealt elsewhere in search of a less contentious starting gig, and will remain away from the Eagles while awaiting a trade.
