The status of Sam Bradford's health is obviously the biggest thing to watch as Eagles training camp begins this weekend. A report from last week indicated Bradford "looks great" and should be ready to be a full participant in practice. Now one of the quarterback's teammates is essentially confirming the good news.
Eagles rookie wide receiver Nelson Agholor spoke to a few media members on Wednesday evening during a charity event for Brent Celek's Take Flight Foundation. Philadelphia's 2015 first round pick had the following to say:
Went to Brent Celek's charity event tonight. . ...Nelson Agholor threw with Sam Bradford last week, said Bradford looked great— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) July 29, 2015
Agholor on Bradford: "He’s moving great. That’s something the organization can share. But to me, he looks great, he looks healthy."— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) July 30, 2015
Bradford is obviously expected to be the team's starter after the Eagles acquired him in a trade with the St. Louis Rams earlier this offseason. The 27-year-old veteran is a little bit behind the eight ball after being limited during spring workouts but starting off training camp healthy is a positive sign for him.
The first practice of Eagles training camp begins on Sunday, Aug. 2. All eyes will be on Bradford.
