The move was expected because their quarterback situation didn’t make sense. The Eagles had signed Sam Bradford to a new two-year deal and brought in his backup Chase Daniel, then signed him to a three-year agreement.
Despite this activity, Sanchez was still on the roster. The Birds were expected to release Sanchez, but they able to get a draft pick for him.
Yesterday, the Eagles cleared up things by trading Sanchez to the Broncos for a conditional 7th round pick in 2017 draft. They also will get $4.5 million dollar of cap relief from the trade, so it was a good move by Howie Roseman and the Birds.
Denver is in need of quarterback help because Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler left the team for a free agent deal with the Houston Texans.
