WHO DAT?

Former Eagles linebacker lasts just 3 weeks with Saints

WHO DAT?

So much for that winning culture. Nigel Bradham lasted just three weeks with the Saints. 

According to an ESPN report, the Saints have already decided to cut the former Eagle and NFL veteran. 

Bradham, 30, agreed to sign with the Saints back on July 30 and he seemed really happy about joining a winning organization. 

On Aug. 17, Bradham said he was happy to finally be with a winning organization, a comment that raised eyebrows in Philly because Bradham obviously won a Super Bowl with the Eagles. 

“It’s definitely a different type of environment, a different culture, because the last two organizations I went to wasn’t really a winning organization,” Bradham said. “So when you come to a place where it’s known for winning and known for being in the postseason, you see the different type of culture that they have and the different type of expectations that they have naturally and what they expect out of you as a player.”

Bradham later tried to clarify his remarks, saying he meant upon his arrival to Philadelphia the Eagles weren’t a winning organization. Bradham arrived to Philly in 2016, along with Doug Pederson and Jim Schwartz. 

Bradham played four seasons with the Eagles and started 58 games. But the Birds elected to not bring him back for the 2020 season, instead deciding to go with younger players. 

The Eagles have an incredibly young group of linebackers this season, with Nathan Gerry, T.J. Edwards and Duke Riley leading the way. 

 

Bradham is now a free agent again. Hopefully, for him, another winning team comes calling.
