Even in the wake of his mini-holdout, the Philadelphia Eagles have made it abundantly clear that Sam Bradford is the No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart. But for now, he isn’t seeing any more action than the team’s well-paid backup Chase Daniel, or rookie Carson Wentz.

The three Eagles quarterbacks have been splitting reps in OTAs equally, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

"I don't know if you counted reps today but in all the scripted team periods it was equal, so all three quarterbacks got the same amount," Pederson said, per Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com. "I’m not sure what the last period was—it was unscripted—but it was probably pretty similar. And that's the way we're going to approach the offseason."

Of course, it won’t stay this way forever, but Pederson doesn’t believe there’s any real drawback to the workload being split up equally between the three at this point in the offseason.

"This time of the year, no," he said. "All three of these guys are smart guys, they are sharp guys. I don't have any issues with dividing it up three ways. I know once we get later into camp, we need to get our starter, Sam, we need to give him more reps, but right now I'm not concerned with that."
