Broncos sign LB Nigel Bradham to practice squad


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos added another defensive player to their practice squad when they signed linebacker Nigel Bradham on Monday.

Bradham, a nine-year veteran, has tallied 619 career tackles, three interceptions, 33 passes defensed, five forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, 8.5 sacks and 34 tackles for loss since entering the league as a fourth-round pick in 2012.

Bradham spent the first four years of his career in Buffalo before moving to Philadelphia ahead of the 2016 season. He played for the Eagles through 2019 but has not appeared in a game yet this season. At inside linebacker last season, Bradham started 12 games and recorded 61 tackles, an interception and five passes defensed.

The Florida State product has a pair of 100-tackle seasons to his name and could provide depth at the linebacker position if he is elevated from the practice squad on a game day. Under a new NFL rule, teams may elevate two players per week to their game-day roster.

The Broncos added other defensive talent to their practice squad on Sunday when they signed linemen Sylvester Williams and Darius Kilgo to the unit.
