Jordan Matthews isn’t the only Eagles teammate of Sam Bradford that has conversed with him since he requested the Eagles to trade him a few weeks ago. Connor Barwin, on The Mike and Ike Show on WIP today, said that he’s talked to Bradford and felt that, based on their conversation, he’d be coming back “sooner than later.”
I think we were excited when we saw them go up and get Carson at number two … I think all of us see Sam as the starter for the next year or two to help mentor, but Carson will be the quarterback of the future in the long term.”
“I think obviously he [Bradford] didn’t see it coming and was surprised by it, but I expect it him to be back in the next week or two and be the starting quarterback next year.”
“He’s still on the team. He’s got to come to work, and from my conversation with him it sounded like he was coming back sooner than later.”
He doesn’t say conversations. Just conversation. One conversation. Not plural. Interesting. Or not. You decide.
