Sam Bradford thinks it would be cool to have the Pope bless his knee

This is great.

As mentioned earlier today, a group of Eagles fans have organized a petition to have Pope Francis bless Sam Bradford's knee while visiting Philadelphia. The petition currently has 2,400 supporters as of this post.

After Eagles training camp practice on Tuesday afternoon, Bradford was asked about the petition.

"I haven’t seen that," he said. "I was told about it before I talked to you guys."

He was not opposed at all, though.

"If I got to meet the Pope, I think that would be pretty cool," Bradford said, with a laugh. "If he wanted to bless my knee, then I’m all for it."

So there you have it.

The Pope is scheduled to visit Philadelphia on Sept. 26-27. The Eagles are scheduled to play the New York Jets in North Jersey that weekend, but maybe the team can find some time for Bradford to meet the Pope and get his blessing.
