Number One: Experience

One of the biggest reasons why the New Orleans Saints haven’t been able to get over the hump in the playoffs is because of a lack of experience.

The Saints brought in a player who not only had experience of playing in and winning a Super Bowl but a player who is still very productive and offers a lot to any defense.

The Saints do still have some guys with some experience at the linebacker position including Demario Davis, Craig Robertson, and Kiko Alonso; but Bradham is arguably the second-best out of all those names.

Not only does Bradham have NFL experience, but he also has experience playing with Malcolm Jenkins who was brought back to be the starting strong safety for the Saints this year.

The Saints will miss the experience they had with Nigel Bradham as they look to see if some youth can bring the same energy and productiveness that Bradham would have.
