Prominent NFL source: Broncos reached out to PHI re: Bradford. Unable to confirm w/ team but NFL source: PHI asking price too high. #9news— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) April 26, 2016
It's unclear what the exact asking price for Bradford is but one can assume it was at least a second or third round pick. Keep in mind that the Broncos were unwilling to part with a second-round pick for San Fransisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and only valued him as a fourth rounder. It's safe to assume the Broncos put the same kind of value of Bradford and deemed the asking price too lofty at this time.
We can now add Bradford to the list of quarterbacks the Broncos kicked the tires on this offseason. That list now includes veterans Brock Osweiler, Colin Kaepernick, and Brain Hoyer.
With the NFL Draft less than 72 hours away, the Broncos are either waiting to make a trade or sign one of the available quarterbacks I mentioned above or planning on drafting a quarterback early in the 2016 NFL Draft.
General Manager John Elway has continued to preach patience this offseason, but the Broncos are running out of time to nail down their signal caller for 2016. If I was a betting man I would bet that the Broncos would come away with their starter this weekend. Either through a high draft pick, a trade for Kaepernick or Bradford, or signing a veteran like Brian Hoyer or Ryan Fitzpatrick.
This is going to be a fun, exciting, stressful and probably annoying week for us Broncos fans.
