WHY JAMES BRADBERRY HOLDS KEY TO 12-WIN, SUPER EAGLES SEASON!

By Max Harper

Cornerback James Bradberry was great with the New York Giants in 2020.

Last season not so much.

Then was cut in a salary-cap move.

The Eagles signed him to a one-year deal.

Bradberry will get a lot of attention opposite Darius Slay.

If he plays at a Pro Bowl level again, it can help the Eagles go to a new level.

Then Bradberry can perhaps get one more big contract again at age 29.

And yesterday, ESPN released its list of bounce-back candidates for this season and they included Eagles cornerback James Bradberry on their list:

WHAT WENT WRONG: AFTER A CAREER-BEST SEASON IN 2020, BRADBERRY HAD ARGUABLY A CAREER-WORST CAMPAIGN IN 2021. HE ALLOWED THE HIGHEST COMPLETION PERCENTAGE OF HIS SIX-YEAR CAREER BY A WIDE MARGIN (65.2%). IT’S NOT TOO WORRISOME, HOWEVER, AS HIS BALL PRODUCTION WAS STILL THERE, WITH FOUR PICKS AND 13 PASS BREAKUPS. — PFF

OUTLOOK FOR 2022: EARLY SIGNS INDICATE BRADBERRY IS POISED TO BOUNCE BACK.

HE HAS HAD ONE OF THE BEST TRAINING CAMPS OF ANY PLAYER ON THE EAGLES’ ROSTER, ROUTINELY COMING UP WITH PASS BREAKUPS AND MAKING LIFE TOUGH ON THE LIKES OF DEVONTA SMITH AND A.J. BROWN.

BRADBERRY LIKES IT BEST WHEN HE IS ASKED TO PLAY A HEALTHY MIXTURE OF MAN AND ZONE COVERAGES, WHICH SHOULD BE A MATCH FOR DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR JONATHAN GANNON’S SYSTEM. — TIM MCMANUS
