Report: Eagles to shop Kendricks after re-signing Bradham

The Philadelphia Eagles made a big move on Wednesday by re-signing one of their core players, but they may have to part ways with another one as a result.Nigel Bradham, who was arguably the best linebacker in free agency, has agreed to a five-year, $40 million extension with the Eagles. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Philly is now expected to shop Mychal Kendricks in trade talks to get some salary cap relief. Bradham recorded 88 total tackles in 15 games for the Eagles last season. He also had a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and eight passes defended. He continued to come up big in the postseason, where he had 15 total tackles and a sack in three games.Kendricks has been with the Eagles for his entire six-year career, but they obviously felt they had to make Bradham their priority. There’s still a chance both could be with the team in 2018.
