If you're an National Football League quarterback in the NFC - especially in the NFC East - you'd better cross your fingers the Philadelphia Eagles' front seven doesn't cut your season short in 2018. All told, he compiled 61 tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery, a forced fumble and eight pass breakups.

Bringing Bradham on two years ago after the linebacker spent the first four years of his career as a member of the Buffalo Bills turned out to be an wonderful decision for the Eagles, and seeing that he's going to continue being part of this elite defense for years to come is a huge relief. He continued to come up big in the postseason, where he had 15 total tackles and a sack in three games. Although he filled in for Jordan Hicks past year and showed flashes of his talent, the Eagles could save $4.4 million if they trade Kendricks.

As a result, they will look to trade linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who has a cap hit of $7.6 million. After being on the market for the entirety of last offseason, he ended up staying in Philly, starting 13 games and winning a Super Bowl championship.

Bradham was selected in the fourth round by the Buffalo Bills in the 2012 draft, and signed a two-year deal with the Eagles in March of 2016.
