Eagles to release QB Sam Bradford

The Eagles are set to release Sam Bradford, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Sources say the decision to let Bradford walk was made by the team’s ownership.

Bradford has spent the last five seasons as the team has gone 8-8.

The veteran passer has been inconsistent as a passer and a runner, as evidenced by his 2,842 passing yards and 17 touchdowns over the past two seasons.

Bradfield has struggled in recent seasons and the Eagles have been forced to move on from him as they attempt to rebuild the roster.

The team’s first-round pick, Jordan Matthews, has been the most effective player of the group.
