Ever since the Philadephia Eagles traded up to get the second pick in the 2016 NFL Draft there has been tension between the organization and quarterback Sam Bradford. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Eagles have been informed that Bradford wants to be traded and he will not be showing up to their off-season program any longer.
Now we learn that the Denver Broncos called the Eagles about Bradford, but decided that the price was too much for them, according to Mike Klis of 9news.com.

The two sides could still work out a trade for Bradford as we get closer to the draft on Thursday. It is also possible that Bradford and the Eagles smooth things out considering even if the Eagles take a quarterback in round one, Bradford will still be the teams starting quarterback.
