Bradham Avoids Jail Time, Still Faces Discipline from NFL

PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) – Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham has reached a deferred prosecution agreement over aggravated battery charges in Florida in an effort to avoid jail time.

The court filing was first reported by ESPN’s Tim McManus and relates to an incident at a Miami-area hotel last July in which the 27-year-old linebacker was accused of breaking the nose of a cabana boy in regard to a dust-up over an umbrella purchase. The employee was allegedly struck with a glass bottle before being punched by Bradham.

If Bradham meets the conditions of the agreement, jail time is off the table. However, although this clears up the legal part of it from Bradham’s standpoint, he still faces discipline from the NFL, which can and often imposes its own penalties regardless of any legal outcome.

Under the current CBA, the floor to any suspension under the NFL’s personal conduct policy is now at six games so the Eagles are hardly out of the woods when it comes to Bradham, who also is still facing a misdemeanor weapons charge after bringing a gun into a Miami airport last October.
