Just hours before the official start of free agency, they kept one of their best players from hitting the market when they re-signed linebacker Nigel Bradham to a five-year contract. The signings of Nelson and Bradham made it likely that Mychal Kendricks' days in Philly are over, but no word has come (as of Wednesday evening) of another linebacking move.
The Philadelphia Eagles will re-sign linebacker Nigel Bradham to a five-year contract worth $40 million, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. During the team's Super Bowl LII-winning postseason run, Bradham recorded 12 tackles, one sack and one pass defensed in three contests.
Saints to bring back CB Patrick Robinson on four-year deal
He spent last season with the Eagles and played a critical role as the team's nickel cornerback in their Super Bowl run. Davis developed into an elite three-down linebacker last season with the Jets, recording 135 tackles and five sacks.
Bradham, 28, is a six-year veteran of the National Football League, playing four seasons for the Buffalo Bills and the last two with the defending champion Eagles.
Kendricks has been with the Eagles for his entire six-year career, but they obviously felt they had to make Bradham their priority. He also forced a fumble on a lateral play that was picked up by defensive end Brandon Graham and returned for a victory-sealing touchdown in the division-clinching win at L.A. Rams in Week 14.
