Blessed with impressive size and speed to burn, Bradley has all the physical tools to not only succeed in the NFL, but flourish. However, even though Muhammad was given the night off to rest some lingering bumps and bruises, Bernard Berrian and Rashied Davis were given the starting nod while Bradley was almost nowhere to be found. The former Sooner ended the game with one catch for two yards and dropped at least one pass that hit him right in the hands.
Considering Bradley turned the ball over on a fumble after the one reception he made last week against the 49ers, he should have been plenty motivated to come back and stake his claim as a starter on this team. But he was a ghost for the most part on Friday night and earned the dubious honor as the Bear Report Dud of the Week. With Muhammad's role secure and Davis looking more impressive each and every day, Bradley needs to step it up a notch these next two preseason games if he plans to play a significant role in offensive coordinator Ron Turner's receiver rotation.
