ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Monday morning that the Eagles were informed that quarterback Sam Bradford wants to be traded and will not be showing up for the rest of the offseason program.
Howie Roseman spoke with Comcast SportsNet's John Clark after the report was released and continued to back Bradford.
"I want to reiterate our support for Sam Bradford and go back to our statements last week - that Sam is our starting quarterback," Roseman said. "His agent and Sam know how we feel about him. These workouts are voluntary. We look forward to seeing Sam again in the near future."
As a follow-up question, Roseman was asked if there was concern that Bradford will not show up for the mandatory portions of the offseason program.
"No, I think you talk about Sam and what a pro he is," Roseman said. "Him and his agent, we've worked well together for a long period of time. He loves to play the game. We look forward to seeing him soon."
Clark asked Roseman about Bradford's reaction to the trade that the Eagles made to acquire the No. 2 overall pick. Out of respect for the relationship with Bradford and his agent, Roseman said that the team will keep those conversations private.
Meanwhile, Phase 2 of the offseason program began in Philadelphia on Monday. Phase 2 lasts up to three weeks and gives coaches and players a chance to get on the field and execute, albeit at a slower pace and without contact, the schemes and concepts taught through the first two weeks of the offseason program and the voluntary minicamp.
Players are still limited in the amount of time they are able to spend at the NovaCare Complex on Mondays through Thursdays with coaches' supervision and instruction. In their daily routine of conditioning, meeting time and now the on-field work, players are permitted to be at the NovaCare Complex for four days of the week.
