Nigel Bradham: Buffalo Bills backed out of contract talks

Bradham was one of three former Bills to join the Philadelphia Eagles.

Nigel Bradham signed a two-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday. The linebacker became the third former Buffalo Bills defensive player to sign with Philadelphia in free agency.

According to Bradham, the Bills "backed out" of talks with the linebacker. This may have been a blessing in disguise for Bradham as he struggled in Rex Ryan's scheme last season. On Wednesday night, Bradham told SiriusXM NFL Radio that the defense struggled as a whole due to the personnel being a poor fit for the scheme.


Although other teams showed interest in Bradham, the linebacker chose to play for the Eagles. The biggest reason Bradham and other former Bills are heading to Philadelphia? To play under Jim Schwartz, their defensive coordinator in 2014. Bradham noted that Schwartz's defense is fun and aggressive.


In 2014, Bradham recorded 104 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, six passes defensed, one interception, and two forced fumbles under Schwartz.

Now that he's in Philadelphia, Bradham talked about how much he looks forward to playing the Bills.


Although revenge was on his mind, it's clear that the linebacker hasn't looked at a schedule to see when Buffalo and Philadelphia will play next.


Perhaps the linebacker was talking about the Super Bowl. If that's the case, the Bills would be more than happy to square off against Bradham and the Eagles.
