Sam Bradford
(Matthew Healey/ UPI)

The Eagles have invested a ton of money in quarterbacks this offseason but it appears Sam Bradford will get the starting nod week one. Recently head coach Doug Pederson went to the podium to discuss his Eagles during the first portion of OTA’s. To this point all signs point to Sam Bradford heading into the season opener as the starter.

“I think he’s done an outstanding job,” Pederson said. “Again, when you’re spreading reps equally, with three guys, that’s what you want to see, and I think he’s really done a nice job and taken that next step to be the leader of this football team and be the starter. He’s done a good job there.”

The current Eagles depth chart lists Bradford as the starter followed by Chase Daniel number two, and Carson Wentz third. At the end of the day this is still a wide open competition that could change over the course of the training camp.

“It’s still a competition,” Pederson said. “Listen, I brought guys in here at all positions for competition. That’s what makes you better. Iron sharpens iron. Don’t misunderstand what we’re saying. I’ve played the position. Donovan McNabb was drafted to take over my spot eventually. That’s just the nature of the deal.”
