Howie Doesn’t Know if Bradford is Ignoring Texts Because He Hasn’t Tried to Text Him

Eagles GM Howie Roseman (I will not use his official title because he’s the damn GM, come on) made a call into ESPN radio’s Mike and Mike this morning to talk trading up for Carson Wentz, signing Chase Daniel, and dealing with Sam Bradford. It was a QB-a-palooza.

Roseman told M&M that he doesn’t know if the report on Sam Bradford ignoring calls and texts is accurate because he hasn’t tried to call or text him:

“I have not spoken to [Sam], I have not reached out to him so I’d probably have to go talk to some people here and ask them [if Sam is ignoring texts and calls]. But Sam’s a pro and understands he’s got a great opportunity here to come in, be the starting QB with our group of players around him and hopefully win some games …

No [we are not considering a trade]. We’re gonna do what’s in the best interest of our team. If anything makes us better we’ll look at it, but we’re really comfortable where we are with the QB position.

We have not [given Condon permission to seek a trade].”

At least from Howie’s perspective, it seems like a “two can play that game” response to Bradford cutting off communication with the team. He hasn’t reached out to Sam, Sam hasn’t reached out to him, and he hasn’t given Sam’s agent permission to seek trades. It’s like the most boring and bloodless Mexican standoff of all time. But Howie clarified that while he let Sam know about the trade before it was announced, he didn’t necessarily care how he felt about it or how it looked:

“We’d been very clear publicly and privately that we were gonna draft a young QB … it was a priority for us, we needed to get one in here we were gonna develop. When we signed Sam we told him he was our starting QB. We told him about the trade before the trade happened. But we gotta do what’s in the best interest of our team in the short-term and the long-term. That’s our job.”

It’s not that the fans in general were ever on Bradford’s side, but it’s incredible how Howie went from odd-man-out punchline to guy Eagles fans will defend against their starting QB. Everything has gone right for Roseman since regaining control, but the team hasn’t played a snap either. That’s the real test, but he’s flying high right now.

  1. Seriously Jim, excellent job today. Interesting articles and since I won’t have nothing to do anymore, I await each article.

    1. Im an occasional listener of Mike Miss (at least when he is not preaching his liberal politics or strange obsession with teenagers music) but he is right about Bradford. The guy has every reason to give the middle finger to the Eagles and has plenty of money to do it. But I do hope Bradford dies in a fire.

  2. Um no Howie, you have definitely tried calling or getting in touch with the guy somehow. How smug is this little asshole? His ego is soo big yet fragile, he tries to act like he is big timing Bradford just to save some face. Howie and Lurie are terrible liars

  4. Mike Miss could not be more WRONG. He is in an island with his opinion of the Bradford saga. Callers are making great points and he blows them off. He says that it is because we don’t like the guy. Well,……… Yeah, that’s right. He has no resume in the league or this franchise and wants to be treated like some quarterback God. You’ve done nothing!!!!!! Ever!!!!!!! You tested free agency and nobody wanted you!!!!!!! You signed a 2 year deal after turning down a longer deal before that. How do you not see that you are obviously not the future? Howie can say EFF off. Bradford is another one of Chils guys. Still hurting us and acting like we owe him something when he hasn’t won, ever, anywhere, ever, never. And all we do is pay him crazy money and carry him around on a satin pillow. Let’s not start with the injuries. Mike is unlistenable lately. Listen to Ike’s opinion of it all….. He is spot on

    1. I remember when Eskin and Miss Nellie had a afternoon show on WIP.
      One day Howard beat the snot out of him. Miss Nellie started bawling like a baby an ran to Ree Ahh for help. When Ree Ahh refused Miss Nellie got mad and yelled at Angelo. Angelo, being the King , did not take kindly to being hollered at and had Miss Nellie fired.

      Oh those were the days

  5. It is because of shit like this–EVERY FUCKING YEAR THERE IS SOME KIND OF FUCKING DRAMA–that they will NEVER EVER WIN A SUPER BOWL..
    Gold Standard—FUCK OFF

  6. Told Bradford about the trade before it happened but what about telling him their plan to trade before he signed his contract?
