Nigel Bradham Is Signing a Five Year, $40 Million Extension

That is actually money he’s rolling around in.

Howie does it again. The Eagles are reportedly re-signing Nigel Bradham to a five-year, $40 million deal. It’s unclear how much of that is guaranteed, but what is clear is that this likely spells the end for Mychal Kendricks, who otherwise would have a $7.6 million cap hit.

Here’s Jordan Raanan of NJ.com:

Nailed it. Much was made of the Eagles’ cap situation, but NFL GMs have countless resources at their disposal to manipulate the true cap hit without having to blow up a roster. Trimming some fat here and there, a restructure here, and, boom, cap space.

Bradham was, obviously, a huge part of the Eagles’ defense, and keeping him around alongside Jordan Hicks (if he’s healthy) evolves the Eagles’ excellent linebacking corps. Kendricks had a great season, but was never a true fit in Jim Schwartz’s scheme, so it makes sense that he’d be the #capcasualty here. The Eagles might repeat.
