PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) --Even though Sam Bradford is back on a 2-year deal that doesn't mean the Eagles will pass on drafting a quarterback next month.
And head coach Doug Pederson says Bradford wouldn't have a problem with it.
"We're going to continue to bring guys in, quarterback being one of them," said Pederson. "Doesn't mean he's got to be the day-1 starter."
"If there's ever an opportunity to improve ourselves, whether it's by free agency, by trade in the draft, we're going to try to do that, and certainly all options are on the table." said Eagles Executive Vice President of Football Operations Howie Roseman.
Protecting the quarterback and their investment in Bradford is a major priority going forward. The Eagles are eyeing offensive lineman in free agency next week and in the draft where there's a strong pool of candidates, according to Roseman who believes the team is more than one more player away from being a contender.
"We got so much to do I don't think about it like you sign one player. It's a different sport, it's a team sport," said Roseman. "We just got to build the team."
Whoever the Eagles sign or plan to sign in free agency, Roseman says they are keeping in mind they still need money leftover for Pro Bowl defensive lineman Fletcher Cox who still needs a new contract.
