Number Three: Nigel Bradham

Nigel Bradham is not a lock to make the New Orleans Saints’ final 53-man roster, but he does have a strong chance to. The Saints have been in need of good veteran leadership at the linebacker position and Bradham will fill that role exceptionally well.

Bradham likely won’t be a starter for the Saints if he makes the final 53-man roster, but I’m confident that he will still have some sort of role on the defense. Bradham is a monster of a linebacker and has been vocal about how excited he is to be in New Orleans.

His excitement and productiveness at the linebacker position could give him an edge over some young guys who are trying to make the team.

Bradham has been excellent in his eight-year NFL career that he spent with the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles so far and he will look to keep that same energy in the black and gold this time.
