Nigel Bradham is willing to return to the Buffalo Bills on a one-year prove it deal

Nigel Bradham is willing to return to the Bills on a prove it deal.

Nigel Bradham will take a bet on himself to return to the Buffalo Bills. The linebacker said he'd be willing to return to the Bills in 2016 on a one-year 'prove it' type of deal.

Ty Dunne of the Buffalo News had this quote from Bradham in an article on 10 things the Bills should this offseason:

“If I have to do another year to prove it,” Bradham said, “it’s not a big deal. If it is, it is, if that’s how they feel. I’ve been in the league four years now. I should have enough out there.

“If not, it’s nothing for me to go and prove it. I’ve got the talent to prove it.”

It's certainly an idea the Bills should entertain this offseason. Bradham didn't have a great season with Buffalo in 2015 and it felt as though he struggled in coverage and missed many tackles on the field. That said, after Bradham suffered a high ankle sprain against the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo's linebacker play suffered. 

Looking at Buffalo's cap situation, Bradham isn't likely to get a lucrative long-term deal with the Bills this offseason or even next year if he returns and performs well. However, Bradham can go a long way in earning a big contract elsewhere if he returns and excels in Buffalo's defense in 2016.
