    The Philadelphia Eagles have said pretty much all offseason that Sam Bradford is their starting quarterback, which would seem to indicate there is no quarterback competition.

    But even if OTAs did represent such a QB race, which they don’t, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said this week that Bradford would be winning it.

    "I think so," Pederson said, per the Philly Voice. "I think he's done an outstanding job. When you're spreading reps equally with three guys, that's what you want to see, and I think he's really done a nice job of taking that next step to be the leader of this football team and be the starter. He's done a good job."

    Bradford tossed 19 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions in his first season with the Eagles in 2015, before signing a two-year, $36 million deal back in March. He was reportedly upset when the team selected Carson Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, and demanded a trade, but he ultimately acquiesced and rejoined the team for OTAs.
