Through the first eight weeks of the season, Sam Bradford's Philadelphia Eagles career hasn't exactly taken off - the injury-prone quarterback has thrown 10 interceptions on the way to the franchise's stuttering 3-4 record so far.
As such, Eagles fans were probably counting their lucky stars when they read reports yesterday claiming Bradford had turned down a monster $72 million, four-year deal on offer from Philly this summer.
With many suggesting Bradford would surely now be regretting the decision after his shaky start to the 2015 season, the player himself has addressed the rumor.

Eagles beat writer Eliot Shorr-Parks had the QB's response:
Bradford's answer casts doubt over the original report from WIP-FM's Howard Eskin and, for the player's sake, you have to hope he never received the offer considering the way things have gone since.
The report also stated that the Eagles are no longer quite as keen on keeping the former Rams star around beyond 2015.
And, after eight weeks of the campaign, that part of the story may be more believable.
The Eagles were supposed to hit the ground running this year with an offense capable of dissecting any opponent.
As it is, however, Chip Kelly's team have failed to find any consistency behind Bradford - finding themselves in the bottom third of the NFL when it comes to passing yards and touchdowns.
If the 27-year-old's form doesn't see a significant spike through the second half of the season, you have to wonder just what kind of offer he will receive in 2016 free agency, and from where that offer will materialize.
