The Eagles wanted Broncos to pay an outrageous price for Sam Bradford

On the other hand, the Eagles’ need to get plenty in return is understandable. They were already on the hook for $11 million of the $22 million guaranteed they promised Bradford in the form of a signing bonus. Like, it was a already spent — they were trading Bradford and an $11 million coupon more than just the player.

This whole offseason for Denver was about Elway refusing to flinch at the quarterback market in the face of Peyton Manning’s retirement. He wouldn’t overpay for Brock Osweiler (who took $72 million from Houston and left in free agency) and he wouldn’t give up too much in a trade.

He was willing to be patiently bold and it paid off nicely when he landed Paxton Lynch in the first round. Everything isn’t solved, but the value Lynch provides with his tools and skills at his cost as opposed to the value of Bradford for a pair of second-round picks is a no brainer.

One of our favorite things to do as sports fans is compare the performance of our current athletes with those from the past to glean some sort of insight into who was better.

In the big picture it’s a bit silly because the game (especially football) has changed so much even over the past 15 years. Still, we can dig deeper into the numbers to analyze what a player with a certain profile may do in the future.

You know what else Aguayo has never done? Kick in cold weather.

Playing in Tampa certainly lessens the likelihood that he’ll now have to do it regularly, but playoff football has been known to take place in less-than-ideal environments. Having a kicker with some — even a little — experience would seem beneficial.

“The coldest I’ve ever kicked in I want to say is probably about 50 degrees,” Aguayo told PFTLive. “I mean to tell you the truth I haven’t really kicked in cold weather games . …I think I’m up for the task.

“That sucks,” Norman says. “I was looking forward to that.”

As someone who doesn’t actually host football camps, I’ve got no idea whether or not you could still manage to host a football camp in Charlotte while living in Washington, D.C. But as someone who has traveled from North Carolina to Washington fairly frequently, it’s not hard to imagine a situation where Norman could keep the football camp going even after switching teams.

We’re not going overboard with the umlaut here though, because it might break our website.

Anyway, it’s been a month of firsts for Boehringer. Not only was he the first-ever foreign-born player without any college football experience to get drafted, but he was also the first rookie to sign his contract following the NFL Draft.

On wild-card weekend in January 2014, the jig was up: Tampa’s SWAT team busted into Caldwell’s building. After the arrest, the former receiver seemed to regret putting his gambling ring next to an elementary school.

“I see now, yup, not the greatest location for that kind of thing,” Caldwell told ESPN. “Too big, too fast. I laugh at my stuff too. What else can you do? I have to laugh.”

The package from China got flagged by UPS and after that, an undercover cop was sent to deliver it. At that point, Caldwell didn’t really have an out: He couldn’t deny ordering the package because he had been tracking it on his cell phone.

Terrell Owens: Sam Bradford’s trade request is ‘sign of a coward’

Bradford is unimpressed; he’s skipping voluntary workouts and Condon says he won’t return to work until mandatory minicamps on June 7.

We’re not sure what the end game is here, and there doesn’t appear to be much of a market for Bradford elsewhere around the league. Worth noting: His play wasn’t even replacement-level last season, which means the Eagles don’t have much to lose by turning to Chase Daniel, who was signed in the offseason, until Wentz is ready.

Jon Bostic is on the move — again. Less than a year after the Patriots traded a sixth-round pick to the Bears in exchange for Bostic’s services, the Patriots shipped Bostic to Detroit.

The Patriots announced the trade on Monday, though they didn’t specify what the Lions sent them in return. According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Lions gave up a conditional seventh-round pick.

“I think whether or not there are enough people in Las Vegas to support a team is a question,” Blank told ESPN.com Friday. “I haven’t seen the data on that to support it or not support it. It’s certainly a dynamic market. It’s a growth market. It’s got tremendous tourism, a lot of convention business. So it’s certainly a consideration. We’ll see what the facts bear.”

Terron did enough over the weekend to impress Jets coach Todd Bowles.

“He’s quicker than I thought he was,” Bowles said. “He’s quick, he studies and he’s learning.”

If Beckham were to earn a contract with the Jets, that would be a big news, especially since Terron hasn’t played organized football since he was in high school back in 2010.

On paper, Terron is a beast.

As for how Bostic will fit in with the Lions, his best-case scenario might be to simply make the final roster as a backup. And even that seems like a big unknown.

It is worth noting, however, that the Patriots gave up a sixth-round pick in September and then gained a conditional seventh-rounder on Monday, which serves as proof that even the Patriots lose sometimes.
