Draft Scout Nigel Bradham News
07/31/14 - LB Nigel Bradham was suspended by the NFL for the season opener against Chicago for violating the substance abuse policy. Last August, Bradham was ticketed for possession of marijuana, and the case has since been dismissed with no charges filed, so Bradham was predictably surprised that the NFL, nearly a year later, came down with this ruling. He said he was informed in March that a suspension was possible, and he went through the appeal process last week but was denied.
"I'm not proud of it; I want to be out there with my teammates Week 1," he said. There was speculation that Bradham may have failed a drug test in the interim, thus the suspension, but he said that was not the case.
Coach Doug Marrone, who said Bradham was the starter at weak-side linebacker heading into camp, now must turn elsewhere for the Bears game, perhaps to undrafted rookie free agent Jimmy Gaines who has had a good start to camp and even drew some first-team reps.
"It's unfortunate," said Marrone. "Nigel has been playing very well. And just his maturity has improved off the field. He's learned to make better decisions."
