- Associated Press - Thursday, March 10, 2016

The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed on a two-year contract with linebacker Nigel Bradham.

The 26-year-old Bradham is the third former Bills player to join the Eagles this week. The team also signed cornerback Leodis McElvin on Tuesday and cornerback Ron Brooks on Wednesday.

All three played for new Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz when he held that position in Buffalo in 2014.

Bradham started the first 11 games last year and had 57 tackles before an injury ended his season. He had 100 tackles, 2½ sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles and seven pass breakups under Schwartz in 2014.

Bradham will help fill the role created by the trade of linebacker Kiko Alonso to Miami.
