The man, the injuries, the legend. It appears that under the new collective bargaining agreement, according to ESPN, Philadelphia Eagles middle linebacker will become a free agent once the new agreement has been signed.
The minimum number of years has reportedly been moved back, under the new CBA agreement. Switching the limit to four years instead of six for the uncapped players in the 2010 season. This means that Bradley and also several other Eagles will be dumped into the free agent pool, along with an estimated 500 other players league wide. This of course is under the pretense that the CBA is signed, and the terms that ESPN are reporting hold true.
Along with Bradley, some of the other Eagles that will be free agents: Jerome Harrison (RB), Dimitri Patterson (CB), Max Jean-Gilles (OG), and Sav Rocca (P).
The Eagles were more than likely going to do away with Harrison, as they drafted a much better running back in Dion Lewis. Patterson is coming off a rough season and the Eagles essentially replaced him in the draft as well with Curtis Marsh. Jean-Gilles was also replaced with an entire crop of lineman that Andy Reid and the Eagles drafted. Then to conclude, arguably Alex Henery could replace Sav Rocca, but he will still more than likely be resigned.
As for Bradley, I don’t see the Eagles pursuing him in the free agent market. Since joining the Eagles, he has only had one or two seasons in which he did not get injured. He has become more of a liability and Jamar Chaney is the better option as a starter.
