Philadelphia Eagles CB James Bradberry

The Philadelphia Eagles are set to bring back second-team All-Pro cornerback James Bradberry, agreeing to a three-year deal worth $38 million, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.  

“I went back because of the familiarity with the coaching staff, because I love the city and playing for the Eagles,” Bradberry said on his decision to return, via CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson. “They also gave me a deal around what I was looking for. Yes, there were other teams that offered me more, but I feel like Philly fit me the best.”

The Eagles signed Bradberry in 2022 after he was made a cap casualty by the New York Giants and proceeded to have a career year. Bradberry allowed 26 catches on 72 targets for a career-low 4.2 yards per attempt. That 36.1% completion percentage allowed is the lowest among all defensive backs with at least 12 games played. Bradberry also recorded 13 pass breakups, tied for ninth-most in the NFL, as well as three interceptions.

In before Pat pops up to explain why this is actually a bad move that will hurt their cap.

At 3 years, $38M? Why in the world would I say that? That’s a great deal for Philly. Seriously amazed there weren’t higher offers out there.

I mean, the Giants gave him 3 years $43.5M back in 2020 and ended up paying 2 yrs $30.15M. Three years ago!

This is a bad move. That will hurt their youth. It seems more than a little risky to bet your secondary on two 30+ year old dudes.
