Why Eagles are on the bubble as they look to improve at QB

The Eagles are hoping to make some strides this offseason and find some answers at quarterback.

But as we reported, the team’s depth at the position could be compromised by injuries to two of their starting quarterbacks.

The latest from SportsLine.com NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Eagles would not trade quarterback Sam Bradford for a top-tier quarterback this offseason, according to sources.

Bradford was acquired in a trade with the Cleveland Browns in the offseason, but the Eagles have yet to decide whether they’ll move him to help their depth.

They could also use a backup quarterback this year, but a veteran could help with continuity.

Rapoports reported the team would “likely” use a quarterback this season and that Bradford’s injury could hinder the team in that regard.

Raposort also reported the two quarterbacks the Eagles could use as backup options this season are both former first-round picks.

They’re not sure what the future holds for either, but one is a former first overall pick and the other a former second overall pick.

Bradford’s health is another issue, as the veteran QB has been struggling with injuries in recent seasons.

The Eagles could also decide to make another move, but Rapopors reports the team is likely to make one or both of Bradford’s backups their starting quarterback.
