The Saints cut Nigel Bradham before the final roster trimming.
They did so because they believe in the young talent in their linebacking corps. Clearly, they also didn’t view the value that Bradham would bring to the team that much greater than that of players at other positions that may need the depth.
Bradham was brought in a few weeks ago after spending a couple of seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.
He is a hard-hitting, veteran linebacker that could’ve been a nice addition, but with players like Joe Bachie Jr. and Zach Baun standing out in camp, the Saints opted to move on, and they did so rather quickly.
Bradham obviously could’ve had a better camp and was a letdown to coaches as he’ll undoubtedly be released by the next generation of elite Saints’ linebackers.
