The Eagles have high hopes for linebacker Stewart Bradley, and Philly.com is reporting that they want the second-year pro to step in and be the starting middle linebacker this season. Bradley played in all 16 games last season, putting up 18 tackles and one sack, but showed some promise in the teams final three games. He stepped in for an injured Takeo Spikes, who was released this offseason. “He went into those games and made a lot of plays,” defensive coordinator Jim Johnson said. “All of a sudden, the confidence was there. I see confidence. He can make a mistake, but he knows when he does it. It doesn’t bother him because he knows he won’t make it again.” Bradley was the teams third-round draft pick last season out of Nebraska.
