Summary

Bradham had a rough start to his career and looked like he was not going to contribute much, but he proved to be a reliable and effective 3-down linebacker in 2014. The season-ending injury to Kiko Alonso created an opportunity for him and he took advantage. Given the trade of Alonso to Philadelphis this offeseason and the hiring of Rex Ryan, it appears that Bradham has a strong hold on one of the two ILB jobs. He will be entering the last year of his contract, however, and the Bills have some other key players (Dareus, Glenn) so there is a chance he could be auditioning for a job elsewhere too. In any event, if he plays like he did last year, the Bills will be happy to sign him to an extension and consider him one of their core players. LB3 type option with a bit of upside due to his playmaking ability. (May 21)
