Eagles linebacker Stewart Bradley becomes an unrestricted free agent whenever free agency starts. But if there is, as expected, a 72-hour period for teams to sign their own free agents before unrestricted free agency begins, Bradley would like to get a deal done with the Eagles right then.
Bradley’s agent, Eric Metz, told PhillySportsDaily.com that the Eagles Bradley would love to get an offer from the Eagles as soon as the lockout ends.
“We’re open to anything,” Metz said. “If they offer him a long-term contract that we feel is fair then he would have no problem signing in Philadelphia. I think he would like to finish what he started there and help bring a Super Bowl to the city.”
According to Metz, Bradley thinks Philadelphia is the right place for him.
“He has a lot of respect for his coaches, I can tell you that,” said Metz. “I think it would be his first choice [to stay in Philadelphia].”
In a year with no minicamps or organized team activities, keeping players who are comfortable in their current environments is more important than ever. Keeping Bradley in Philadelphia just makes sense.
