PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia Eagles’ Connor Barwin called in to Sportsradio 94WIP’s Mike and Ike Show and took some time to give his two cents on the Sam Bradford situation.
Bradford is reportedly refusing to participate in voluntary team activities after his agent requested a trade, following the Eagles’ trade up to pick No. 2 for Carson Wentz.
But contrary to Bradford’s reaction, Barwin says, “I think we were excited when we saw them go up and get Carson at number two.”
When it comes to Bradford, he says, “I think all of us see Sam as the starter for the next year or two to help mentor, but Carson will be the quarterback of the future in the long term.”
“I think obviously he [Bradford] didn’t see it coming and was surprised by it, but I expect it him to be back in the next week or two and be the starting quarterback next year,” Barwin says.
“He’s still on the team. He’s got to come to work, and from my conversation with him it sounded like he was coming back sooner than later.”
