Chip Kelly told reporters after acquiring Sam Bradford in a trade that he’s not a trade chip, but no one is convinced. For one, just ask anyone on the street about Sam Bradford. They’re not convinced. But some NFL coaches don’t buy it either, at least according to Josina Anderson:
That doesn’t mean they know anything we don’t, that just means (some) coaches feel a certain way. That’s fine, it might not mean anything at all. But what if it does? Chip said he wouldn’t “mortgage the future” for anyone, but he might not have to. If the Titans, at number two, decide they really want Bradford, the Eagles might not have to part with that much. It’s a big “if” though, since the 2-14 Titans obviously have bigger question marks than Zach Mettenberger. But it’s still a possibility, and this rumor won’t die until the Eagles actually pick someone in the draft.
