— So a few Eagles veterans are concerned about the decision to trade Sam Bradford, at least according to Brian Westbrook on yesterday’s Pro Football Live on NBC Sports Radio.
“There’s no doubt about it and I’ve talked to a few guys that have expressed that. A few guys have said, ‘We’re trying to win this year because I don’t know if I’m going to play next year and I’m definitely not sure if I’m going to be able to be in Philadelphia next year. So as much as we want this young guy Carson Wentz to be successful we’re concerned about winning this year. We’re concerned about winning now.’ . . .
While I don’t doubt what B-West is saying, my reaction is almost nothing. I’m sure there are a handfull of veterans who were disappointed that the Eagles decided to trade the quarterback who (perhaps) gives them the best chance of winning. If I’m an offensive player who is worried about his next contract, I might be a little disappointed that the guy who (perhaps) could help them earn a bigger paycheck is gone a week before the start of the regular season. Ultimately, the NFL is a business and all 53 on that roster understand that. This is a non-issue
— Looks like Lane Johnson will play on Sunday. Would love to know why this suspension process is taking so long
