Sam Bradford looks great and should be ready for Eagles training camp, per report

Good news for Philadelphia.

Sam Bradford is expected to be fully ready for when Philadelphia Eagles training camp begins on Aug. 2, according to a report from Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com.

"According to a person familiar with the situation who requested anonymity, Bradford is "looking great", has been in the rehab room close to every day this summer, and should be ready to go when training camp opens. That means Bradford should be out on the field for 11-on-11 drills for the start of training camp."

This report doesn't come as a surprise. During spring practices, when Bradford was only a limited participant, the 27-year-old quarterback said he expected to be ready for training camp. His exact words were: "Yeah, I think if I'm not ready for 11-on-11 by training camp, then I think something has gone terribly wrong."

Bradford has spent the offseason recovering from an ACL tear he suffered last August. Now healthy, Bradford figures to be Philadelphia's starting quarterback this season.

A recent report from Ian Rapoport indicates Bradford, who is scheduled to make nearly $13 million this season, will opt to not sign a contract extension and instead play out the final year of his rookie deal. It goes without saying that this year is a big one for both Bradford and the Eagles.
