Eagles to sign LB Bradham to $40M deal

Looking at the other moves that have been made which include signing defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and trading for defensive end Michael Bennett, there is a good chance that Philadelphia's defense will be even better than previous year.

Nigel Bradham was a key contributor for the Philadelphia Eagles during their Super Bowl-winning season, and the franchise isn't letting the linebacker skip town. After the news broke Wednesday morning that Bradham had agreed to a five-year, $40 million deal with the Eagles, it's safe to say he's going to be worth every penny the organization is paying him.

Signing Bradham could, however, spell the end for fellow linebacker Mychal Kendricks. He also forced a fumble on a lateral play that was picked up by defensive end Brandon Graham and returned for a victory-sealing touchdown in the division-clinching win at L.A. Rams in Week 14. He had a sack to go along with 11 tackles in the postseason. If the Eagles trade or release Kendricks before June 1, they will incur $3.2 million in dead cap for 2018 and save $4.4 million.

The Eagles won 13 games in 2017 and ultimately upset the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl last month. He has a $7.6 million cap hit for 2018.
