Sam Bradford sure has drawn a lot of ire this offseason. It started when the veteran quarterback staged a holdout and requested a trade following Philadelphia's decision to trade up to the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Eagles fans showed very little sympathy to Bradford's cause. Bradford's holdout then drew criticism from current players in the league. Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett (and his brother, Martellus) ripped him on more than one occasion. Now a new player is taking shots at Philadelphia's 2016 starter. This time, it's Washington cornerback Josh Norman.
"Have you ever once been one of the top 20 quarterbacks in the league?" said Norman, via an interview with ESPN. "Not that I remember -- and you want more money? I can't wait to play him twice a year."
Norman is new to the NFC East after signing a big contract with Washington this offseason. He already has a rivalry with New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Something tells me Bradford won't be willing to engage Norman quite like OBJ has in the past.
Maybe Bradford will get tired of everyone ripping him and prove his doubters wrong this year. Or maybe Bradford, who turns 29 in November, will just continue to be the average-at-best quarterback he's been to this point.
