Philadelphia Eagles' 2018 free agency: Corey Nelson adds to options at linebacker

As the entire National Football League became free to move anywhere it wanted, the Birds stayed close to home with their biggest move, signing linebacker Nigel Bradham to a monster $5 year, 40 million pact.

With that being said, another reason why Philadelphia has been so busy with these moves to make salary cap room was so they would be in better position to sign current players to new deals, which is where Nigel Bradham comes into play.

Linebacker Nigel Bradham is going to sign a five-year, $40 million deal with the Eagles according to a report by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Crawfordsville, Fl. native then became a full-time starter for the Bills in 2014, racking up 104 tackles, 2.5 sacks, a pair of forced fumbles and seven passes defended.

Bradham was especially key after LB Jordan Hicks went down with a Torn Achilles.

Now that Bradham will be back, there's a pretty good chance the team looks to trade Mychal Kendricks, who is not a stranger to being on the trade block.

The Eagles won 13 games in 2017 and ultimately upset the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl last month. On the other, the Eagles have so few holes that being able to retain Bradham, add a bit and reshuffle some contracts is really all the team needed. Kendricks totaled 63 tackles between the regular season and the playoffs.
