4. Bring Nigel Bradham back

Back in February, the Eagles made the difficult decision to decline Nigel Bradham‘s player option to save a little extra money after the linebacker spent the previous four seasons playing in Philadelphia.

Bradham’s numbers may not stick out like some of the other players at his position across the league, but the argument can be made the Eagles wouldn’t be coming off a third playoff appearance in a row without his presence on the defensive side of the football.

Once Bradham was released back in February, it seemed like only a matter of time before linebacker found himself a new home, and this could very well still turn out to be the case.

But at this very moment, Bradham remains one of the free agents still available to sign at linebacker, and while the thought of the Eagles bringing him back sounds ridiculous, it certainly deserved to be explored as a possibility.

Not only would this help Philadelphia fill their need at linebacker, but also Bradham is already familiar with the system, and would be returning at a cheaper price.

So depending on if other teams end up expressing interest, if Bradham is still available leading up to the draft, a move like this could work well for both parties.
