Bradham racked up 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Dallas.
Bradham saw season-highs with 69 snaps and 10 tackles. The 29-year-old is now up to 51 tackles on the year with two sacks and two passes defensed. The Florida State product should be good for a handful of tackles Week 11 at New Orleans.
Bradham recorded eight tackles (three solo) and a sack across 47 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.
After sitting out his one-game suspension, Bradham returned full force Sunday, playing in 81 percent of the defensive snaps. He also tied for second in tackles in the contest. Bradham should continue to play a significant role on the Eagles defense as the season progresses.
Bradham received a one-game suspension for undisclosed reasons back in June, and he can return to the Eagles after sitting out Thursday's season opener. Linebackers Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nate Gerry both saw less than 30 defensive snaps Thursday, as veteran safety Corey Graham saw an expanded role in Bradham's absence. The 29-year-old signed a five-year, $40 million contract with Philadelphia back in March, and he should be a significant contributor alongside middle linebacker Jordan Hicks.
Bradham has been suspended for the first game of the 2018 season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
The reasoning for Bradham's suspension hasn't been disclosed, but the linebacker will nonetheless be ineligible to play in the Eagles' season opener against the Falcons on Sep. 6. With Paul Worrilow (knee) on injured reserve, Nate Gerry or Kamu Grugier-Hill are the favorites to take Bradham's place in the starting lineup.
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 effort, 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.
