Eagles newly acquired quarterback Sam Bradford isn’t even at full strength and he’s already impressing the Eagles receivers. 3rd year tight end Zach Ertz has been working out with Bradford and he told Derrick Gunn and Reuben Frank on their Quick Slants Show on Comcast Sportsnet that Bradford has a stronger arm than any quarterback he’s ever played with and that includes Nick Foles, Michael Vick, and Andrew Luck.
“We’ve been throwing for the past three weeks and I can honestly say I’ve thrown with Andrew, Nick and other guys, and I don’t think I’ve thrown with a guy who has a stronger arm than Sam Bradford,” Ertz said.
“He hasn’t been able to really truly get his full legs underneath him. But the ball still comes out effortlessly, and it’s a lot of fun to run routes with him.”
Others have raved about Bradford’s accuracy and his intelligence. This guy is the greatest quarterback that nobody knows is a great quarterback because I didn’t see him do anything special in St. Louis when he was healthy. He didn’t have much help, but he still didn’t do anything special.
Of course the key to Bradford will be staying healthy. We know he has talent because he was the number one pick in the 2010 draft but can he stay healthy over the course of a season.
Came you imagine how the air is going to be sucked out of Lincoln Financial Field each time Bradford drops back to pass and is hit? Hopefully he will make it to the field.
