Nigel Bradham was a key contributor for the Philadelphia Eagles during their Super Bowl-winning season, and the franchise isn’t letting the linebacker skip town.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Bradham has secured a five-year, $40 million deal to remain in Philadelphia.

After joining the Eagles via free agency in 2016, he piled up 102 tackles and five pass defenses during his debut campaign with the team. Last year, Bradham collected 88 stops and broke up eight passes. He provided 15 tackles in the playoffs.

Philadelphia may have viewed the 28-year-old linebacker as the No. 1 priority this offseason, and keeping Bradham prevents a significant void from opening on the defense.

The Eagles have also added Michael Bennett and cornerback Daryl Worley through trades and are expected to sign defensive tackle Haloti Ngata.

Opinion: 5 Free Agency Steals For NFL Teams .
Finding value in a tough free agency market.The 2018 free agency class boasted and still boasts an underwhelming crop. The group included some big name quarterbacks like Kirk Cousins. But outside the quarterback position (which NFL media and fans occasionally think about), the options were sparse. That made it difficult to find good options for the right price. But every year, teams find a way to get good value, even in a year when that might be more challenging like 2018.
