Philly Coach: Sam Bradford "Perfectly" Fits Offensive System

Earlier this week newly introduced Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson addressed the future of former Oklahoma quarterback and pending free agent Sam Bradford.

Bradford, who was traded from the Rams to Eagles last March, is scheduled to become a free agent unless signed to a new contract or placed under a franchise tag.

Pederson praised Bradford, saying he would "perfectly fit" into the Eagle's new offensive scheme.
"I think Sam's a quality quarterback," Pederson said Tuesday. "I think he's a top-notch quarterback. Look what he did that last half of the season, the numbers he was able to put up. As a quarterback, he would fit perfectly with a system that I'm going to bring."

He added.
"Sam brings a whole skill set that benefits him," Pederson said. "It is a pass-friendly system, but it is not so much a vertical system as people think. Today's game has changed offensively. You're seeing more spread-style offenses, more of the run/pass options that quarterbacks have at the line of scrimmage.

"Quarterbacks today have the ability to think with their brain, and I want to tap into that, too."
On Wednesday, it was reported that Bradford and his agent asked for $25 million a year from the Eagles in contract talks last offseason.
