One report claimed that the Eagles offered Sam Bradford a four-year, $72MM deal before the start of the season. When asked about that story today, Philly’s starting quarterback shot it down.
“That offer must have gotten lost in the mail,” Bradford said, according to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com. “I never saw that one. … I think those thoughts are a long way down the road. Obviously we have a big game against Dallas this week. Last week was more about stepping away and getting my mind right and getting ready for this week.”
Here’s more from the East divisions:
- Talent was never the question with Joseph Randle and some within the Cowboys organization felt that his running style was actually a better fit for the team than DeMarco Murray‘s, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News writes. No one was foolish enough to suggest he would challenge Murray’s franchise record of 1,845 yards from last season, but they certainly hoped things would work out better than this. Randle was released by Dallas on Tuesday.
- Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the starter for the Jets on Sunday, coach Todd Bowles told reporters, including Manish Mehta of the Daily News (on Twitter).
- Rex Ryan told reporters, including Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald (on Twitter), that he tried to hire Dan Campbell at one point while he was the head coach of the Jets. However, he says that the Dolphins wouldn’t allow the Jets to interview Campbell, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald tweets. Campbell, who began the year as the team’s tight ends coach, is now serving as Miami’s interim coach. At the midway point, it seems possible that he could keep the job beyond 2015.
