Saints' Nigel Bradham: Finds home in Big Easy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints signed Bradham to a one-year contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After four years with the Eagles, Bradham was shown the door in March and waited out the offseason before finding a new home. In his prior stops -- Philly and Buffalo -- he was a starter at middle linebacker, with two 100-tackle seasons on his resume and a per-16-game average of 84.7 stops. With the Saints, Bradham should slot into the starting lineup due to Kiki Alonso's current recovery from a January ACL tear.

Nigel Bradham: Shown door in Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles released Bradham on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Bradham just finished the second season of his five-year, $40 million contract, and he recorded his lowest tackle total (61) since the 2015 season. According to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, this move will save the Eagles $4.5 million against the salary cap, and there's a slight chance he returns to the team on a low-cost contract. Otherwise, expect the 30-year-old to find a new franchise this offseason.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Logs fewest tackles in four seasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham recorded 61 tackles (32 solo), one interception and five pass breakups across 12 regular season games in 2019.

He added five more stops in the Eagles' wild card loss to Seattle, four of them solo. The 30-year-old missed four games with an ankle injury in the middle of the season and was slightly more productive when he returned, recording 35 of his tackles in the latter half of the year. While the Eagles have an $8 million dollar option to bring him back next season, that number makes it unlikely to be picked up. Nevertheless, the eight-year vet says he'd like to be back with Philadelphia in 2020, so it's possible the two sides work something out.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Paces team in tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: All systems go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Bradham is in line to suit up for the first time since Week 6 on Sunday against the Seahawks. When he was healthy, the middle linebacker was an every-snap player and accrued 26 tackles and three pass breakups over six contests.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Hopes to be back soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) revealed he should be back for Sunday's game against the Seahawks or the team's Week 13 matchup against Miami, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Bradham has sat out the last six games due to this ankle issue. The Eagles didn't find a full-time replacement for the middle linebacker during his absence, instead opting for a rotation of T.J. Edwards, Duke Riley and Alex Singleton. Bradham's return will boost the team's run-stopping efforts going forward, so keep an eye on his practice status as the week progresses.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Won't face Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.

Bradham will miss a fourth straight contest due to his lingering ankle issue. T.J. Edwards is officially listed as Bradham's backup at middle linebacker, but the Eagles have relied on a rotation to fill the void thus far and will likely deploy a similar strategy Week 11.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Coach Doug Pederson hinted Bradham could return for Sunday's clash against the Patriots, but the 30-year-old will need to get on the practice field first. If Bradham can't shake the issue in time, the Eagles may summon a rotation to fill the void, as backup middle linebacker T.J. Edwards hasn't surpassed 22 defensive snaps in a contest during Bradham's three-game hiatus.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Won't play Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Bradham was unable to practice again this week and will miss his third consecutive game. The 30-year-old will now have Philadelphia's Week 10 bye to aid in his recovery before potentially returning for a clash against the Patriots in Week 11. T.J. Edwards figures to see another start at middle linebacker, though he played only 15 defensive snaps last week.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Bradham has missed Philadelphia's last two contest, and he's trending towards sitting out Sunday's tilt against the Bears as well. With a bye coming up Week 10, Bradham could be targeting a return Nov. 17 against the Patriots.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Trending toward another absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) is trending in the wrong direction ahead of Week 9's game against the Bears, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

The Eagles have tested out alternative formations while Bradham has been on the mend, as Nate Gerry and Kamu Grugier-Hill are the only two linebackers who registered over a 25-percent snap share during Sunday's win over the Bills. They may have to continue being creative, as Bradham could miss a third straight contest. If he sits out, he'll aim to return following the team's Week 10 bye for a matchup against the Patriots in Week 11.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Unavailable Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Buffalo.

Bradham will miss his second straight contest after not practicing this week. T.J. Edwards is likely to receive another start in his absence.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Sitting out practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Bradham is trending toward his second straight absence. The 30-year-old will try to get onto the practice field in some capacity Thursday or Friday. If he's unable to get healthy enough by Sunday's game against the Bills, his absence will afford T.J. Edwards another start.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Not playing Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Dallas.

Bradham suffered the injury during last Sunday's game against the Vikings and will be sidelined for at least one game. T.J. Edwards is primed to see increased defensive snaps in his place in Sunday's divisional matchup.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Bradham is considered day-to-day with an ankle issue, the severity of which has caused him to miss two straight practices. His availability for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Cowboys will likely come down to what he's able to do in Friday's practice.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Working through injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) is considered "day-to-day," Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Bradham suffered an ankle injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Vikings. His initial status sounds positive for his chances of playing this Sunday against the Cowboys, but Wednesday's initial practice report will reveal more.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Bradham will likely be evaluated following the game. In his place, rookie T.J. Edwards is expected be deployed in an increased role.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Suffers injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

It's unclear how Bradham suffered the ankle injury, but he was forced to leave the game early in the third quarter. As long as he's sidelined, look for T.J. Edwards to be deployed as the team's middle linebacker for the time being.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Grabs game-sealing interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham had six tackles (four solo) and an interception during Thursday's 34-27 win at Green Bay.

Bradham was in the right place at the right time to secure the interception off a deflection with less than a minute remaining and the Packers on the three-yard line. The 30-year-old has 21 tackles (15 solo) with three passes defensed and an interception through four games while working as an every-down linebacker for Philadelphia.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Paces team in tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham logged seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 32-27 win over the Redskins.

After nursing a hand injury and possibly inviting team discipline for a different incident during the preseason, Bradham started at linebacker and played 100 percent of the snaps. Assuming health, the 30-year-old should be good for close to 100 tackles this season, and this effort put him slightly ahead of the pace.
