2. Nigel Bradham

Over the last three years, Nigel Bradham has been one of the most underrated players for the Eagles on the defensive side of the football, and even though linebacker is already a team need at the moment, if this helped land someone like Brown, it would almost be a no brainer.

After two impressive seasons from 2016-17, Philadelphia rewarded Bradham with a five-year, $40 million deal to keep him around through the 2022 season.

However, when looking at all of the money Bradham is scheduled to make over the next four seasons, one of the benefits of a trade to the Steelers would be the salary cap space cleared up, meaning the Eagles could focus on spending at other positions if needed.

Working with Jim Schwartz over the last three seasons has helped bring out the best in Bradham, and despite the fact that the veteran will be 30 by the start of next year, he still seems to have plenty of gas left in the old tank.

Even if Bradham does end up hanging around for the 2019 season, this wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world for the Eagles since the defense can use all of the help they can get at the linebacker position moving forward.
