Nigel Bradham, LB, Philadelphia Eagles
Nigel Bradham is somebody I’m high on as a potential Tennessee Titans target this offseason. The Titans have struggled covering tight ends and running backs in the passing game for a while now. The middle of the field is the last place you can afford to have liabilities in, and the addition of Bradham would fix that.
Bradham is an instinctual linebacker who can not only run with the best backs and tight ends in coverage, but can fill gaps and be a force in the run game as well. His versatility as well as his consistent play fits the mold of ‘Front Multiplicity, Coverage Consistency’. You can line up Bradham almost anywhere on the defense, and he will produce at a high level.
With Avery Williamson seeming to already have one foot out the door, it would be shocking to not see the front office go after a player like Bradham. While Wesley Woodyard had a career year, he isn’t getting any younger. On the other side of the spectrum, Jayon Brown is looking to develop into more of a consistent force coming into his second year. I can’t see Dean Pees giving Brown the keys to the defense just yet, so seeing how this team handles the linebacker position, both inside and out, is something to definitely keep an eye on this offseason.
