With free agency set to begin at noon today, the Philadelphia Eagles made sure one of their top defensive players wasn't going to have the opportunity to sign elsewhere.

The Crawfordsville, Fl. native then became a full-time starter for the Bills in 2014, racking up 104 tackles, 2.5 sacks, a pair of forced fumbles and seven passes defended.

Rapoport's report came after ESPN's Adam Schefter noted Wednesday the Eagles had agreed to a five-year, $40 million contract to keep linebacker Nigel Bradham. The signing could potentially spell the end of Mychal Kendricks' time with the Eagles.

The deal now secures the Philadelphia Eagles one side of the second-level this coming season in their pursuit to capture back-to-back Vince Lombardi Trophies.

Bradham, who will turn 29 at the start of the season, took over defensive signal calling duties after middle linebacker Jordan Hicks went down with an injury. After being on the market for the entirety of last offseason, he ended up staying in Philly, starting 13 games and winning a Super Bowl championship. On the other, the Eagles have so few holes that being able to retain Bradham, add a bit and reshuffle some contracts is really all the team needed. He provided 15 tackles in the playoffs.
