He hasn’t been here long, but it feels like James Bradberry belongs with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Philadelphia Eagles fan base is oft-criticized for its demanding nature. They’re a fair bunch though. Show up for work, give it your all, and you won’t have any issues with winning them over, even if it takes a little longer than you planned.
Eagles fans are hard-working. Many of them are of the blue-collar variety. From a roster’s perspective, the equivalent is James Bradberry. He doesn’t say much. In all honesty, he was here for a few days before most of us knew what his voice sounded like, but he’s been the perfect complement for Darius Slay.
Many of the past few offseasons have been fueled by us asking the same questions constantly. One of which has been “who’s going to play the ‘other’ outside cornerback position?”. Bradberry drove a wedge in the revolving door, for now anyway (he’s on a one-year deal).
Extending him would mean Philly would enter the 2023 regular season with two starting outside corners who have eclipsed 30 years of age, but when that tandem is as good as Bradberry and Darius Slay have been, it may behoove the Birds to ride this train for another season or two. Truthfully, we haven’t seen any drop-off from either guy.
