    Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Poised for three-down role

    Nigel Bradham is expected to handle an every-down role, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.The Philadelphia Eagles swapped out Jordan Hicks for Zach Brown at middle linebacker this offseason, potentially freeing up a spot for Kamu Grugier-Hill in nickel packages. Either way, Bradham will continue to fill a three-down role after topping 900 defensive snaps in each of his first three seasons with the Eagles. The heavy workloads haven't led to first-rate IDP production, with Bradham averaging 95.7 tackles (65.7 solo) and 1.7 sacks per season in Philadelphia. Much of his value to the team comes from solid work in pass coverage.

    Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Racks up 16 playoff tackles

    Nigel Bradham notched nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's loss to the Saints after finishing the regular season with 97 tackles (67 solo), two sacks and four passes defensed.The tackle total was good for a share of the team lead with Malcolm Jenkins. Bradham was well worth the five-year contract he got last offseason and will count $9 million against the cap next year. The 29-year-old should be a good bet for at least another 90 tackles in 2019 but does not have much IDP upside beyond that.

    Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Re-signs with Philly on five-year deal

    Nigel Bradham agreed Wednesday to re-sign with the Philadelphia Eagles on a five-year, $40 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Tasked with playing on the outside in defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme last season, Bradham moved to the middle following Jordan Hicks' season-ending Achilles injury in October and was instrumental in aiding the Eagles to their first Super Bowl title. Bradham, who finished the past campaign with 88 tackles, eight pass breakups, one forced fumble and a sack in 15 regular-season contests, will be rewarded handsomely for his efforts, but the large financial commitment could force the Eagles to cut costs at the position by releasing fellow outside linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who carries a $7.6 million cap hit for 2018. With Hicks expected back at full strength for training camp, Bradham should move back to the strong side during the upcoming season and could see his tackle total decline as a result.
