Philadelphia Eagles have certainly had an entertaining offseason thanks to their head coach Chip Kelly.

The Eagles boss has been given more responsibility over matters on and off the field this year, which was shown by his ability to make some huge and strange decisions last month.

Kelly decided to trade away his star running back LeSean McCoy and Nick Foles in two huge trades in March, and received both injury-prone duo Kiko Alonso and Sam Bradford.

Yet another trade?

Many experts have since ridiculed these decisions by Kelly, with the decision to trade for Bradford the biggest bone of concern for most of the media.

However, the reality is that Bradford might not ever play a game for the Eagles, with speculation surrounding the former St. Louis Rams signal caller suggesting he may be moved on as part of the Eagles' plan to move up or down the 2015 draft board.

ProFootballTalk reported on Thursday that the reason this speculation has arisen is because of the fact that the Eagles are yet to extend Bradford's current contract.

"When the Eagles traded last month for quarterback Sam Bradford, it was believed that efforts promptly would be made to extend a contract that pays him $12.985 million in 2015, the final year of his rookie deal," PFT revealed.

"Per a source with knowledge of the situation, no meaningful talks have occurred."

"The failure of the Eagles to make a significant effort to extend Bradford’s stay has sparked speculation in league circles that Bradford could indeed be traded again, even though coach Chip Kelly insisted that Bradford won’t be used as a bargaining chip."

Interesting times ahead for both the Eagles and Bradford, but what do you think NFL fans?

Should the Eagles trade Bradford to move higher up in the draft? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
