The Philadelphia Eagles and linebacker Nigel Bradham have agreed on a five-year contract.
The deal announced a few hours before the league's new year starts Wednesday is reportedly worth $40 million. Bradham was a key member on defense for the Super Bowl champions.
He became the quarterback on defense after Jordan Hicks was injured and finished third on Philadelphia's defense with 85 tackles. He added one sack, one forced fumble and one fumble returned for a touchdown.
Bradham was originally selected by the Buffalo Bills in the fourth round in the 2012 draft. He joined the Eagles in 2016.
