Bills sign linebacker Carl Bradford

The Bills continue to bring in competition at linebacker, signing a guy the 49ers didn’t want.

The team announced they signed Carl Bradford, who was cut by the 49ers last week.

The former Packers fourth-rounder never developed into a regular contributor there, despite the injuries that have made a mess of his position in recent years.

The Bills spent fifth- and sixth-round picks on Matt Milano and Tanner Vallejo, and clearly want to create more competition at the position.

    As a close friend of the organization there are inklings that Coach McDermott sees a little Stewart Bradey-type ability in Carl Bradford. Here’s hoping he can tap that.

    The Bills have had some success picking players out of the scrap heap. Lorenzo Alexander and Zach Brown were both castoffs last year that signed and went to the Probowl.

    I’m no doctor, but it might be because of that third arm growing out of his armpit.

    Weird. Pats fans are saying Bill Bellichek is a genius for thinking about signing a LB today. Odd they aren’t here heaping praise on the Bills for actually signing one.

    I doubt very much you are a doctor or even close to it. After all, you are Canadian. Takes to 6 years to get a pimple removed from your back.

    Good luck with Carl Bradford, as a Packer, he did next to nothing if you don’t count getting swallowed up by the offensive lineman blocking you, washed out of plays altogether, and missed tackles.

    If you truly want to know how awful he was, the Vikings passed on him when he hit the Packer waiver wire.
    The Vikings almost never pass on picking up on Packer rejects whether they are any good or not. The fact that the Vikings passed should tell you all you need to know.

    With all this talk of the Vikings picking up awful gb players lately; I wish we all could re-live Lord Favre’s betrayal again. Love those days.

    Packer fan here … nothing against the guy, but he is not an NFL player. His ASU tape never translated. Some terrible linebacker play in GB for a while, and he was inactive his whole time there. That said, I wish him well, but not likely to happen.

    Hey you GB bloggers, how about you tone down the criticism and just wish Bradford good luck? His best may or may not be good enough to land a job in the NFL, but at least he’s picking himself up and trying. None of us can even fathom an opportunity to play with the NFL’s elite.
