Number One: Consistency 

Playing the linebacker position in the NFL is no easy task, your body takes more licks than arguably any other position on the team.

Sure, Bradham has dealt with a few injury problems in his career, but he has still never missed more than five games in a season. He’s been an ironman throughout his career, and that’ll bode well for his time in the Big Easy.

Nigel Bradham is about as consistent of a linebacker as you’ll find. Bradham is always around the ball either in pass coverage or making tackles.

Bradham is a punishing linebacker who makes you pay for coming his way on the field. All coaches want from the linebacker position is a guy who can consistently make tackles and a guy who can hit with a solid thump every play.

Bradham possess every trait you like to see out of a linebacker and he could very well be the piece New Orleans needs to step their defense up to another level.
