Felony Charges Have Been Filed Against Former Eagles Super Bowl Champion
Nigel Bradham, a former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker, was arrested on felony charges in Florida.
In 2020, the 32-year-old free agent last played for the Denver Broncos, where he saw 17 special-teams snaps in a single game.
Bradham is facing serious charges related to a traffic stop that occurred in Leon County on Saturday, November 13th.

According to Christopher Cann of the Tallahassee Democrat, Patricia Jefferson-Shaw pulled the NFL player over after his 2021 Chevy Corvette returned “not assigned.”
The arresting officer also detected a “strong odor of marijuana” in Bradham’s vehicle, prompting him to search it.
According to Cann, this is when things started to get really interesting:
Two handguns, 3.4 pounds of marijuana, and ten small bags believed to be for distribution were discovered during a search of the sports car, according to Jefferson-Shaw.
She added that one gun had been stolen in Missouri.
Three counts of marijuana possession over 20 grams, two counts of gun possession during a felony, and one count of marijuana possession with intent to sell are among the charges he faces.
Bradham was arrested and held in custody before being released on (dollar)1,000 bail.
Bradham told police he had a medical marijuana card, but his name didn’t appear in the state’s registry, according to TMZ Sports.
He had a Smith and Wesson pistol in his satchel and a Glock 23 in his glovebox, according to the gossip website.

Bradham had a tumultuous past.
Bradham has a history of running afoul of the law.
In July 2016, he was charged with aggravated battery in Miami after allegedly assaulting a cabana boy.
According to NBC Miami, the 241-pounder was irritated by the length of time it took to get a beach umbrella, and as a result, he was charged with a felony.
That same year, Bradham made headlines when he was caught with a loaded gun at Miami International Airport.
He was charged with a second-degree misdemeanor for what he called an “unintended mistake,” according to NBC Sports Philadelphia.
