The Cardnals may release high-priced reserve LB Stewart Bradley or restructure his contract in an effort to create more cap space in the days and weeks ahead. Bradley currently has a $6.5 million cap figure ($5 million salary).
After sustaining a torn ACL, he could never regain the form that the Cardnals felt he had.
I think it would be smart to bring in Bradley for a look to see what he can do.
Thom Cunningham of The Bleacher Report wrote while Bradley was with the Eagles,
Bradley has become a dependable play maker in clutch situations of a game. His tackling skills are underrated, but his presence is widely recognized.
Here's his bio,
Bradley was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft.
On December 23, 2007 Bradley had his first sack, and first interception in an Eagles win over the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome. Bradley finished with six tackles, one sack and one interception. During the game, he also essentially single handedly stopped the Saints from scoring from inside the five-yard line four plays in a row. Bradley became the first player in NFL history to start in his first NFL game and make his first interception and first sack at the same time.
In 2007, Bradley was a solid reserve linebacker and key special teams performer in his rookie campaign, finishing 2nd on the team in special teams tackles (17) and 3rd in special teams production points (257).
Sheldon Brown, a starting cornerback for the Browns said that Bradley reminded him of Brian Urlacher in terms of his body type and athletic ability.
On January 6, 2009, Bradley was named to the 2008 Sports Illustrated All-Pro team in only his first year as a starter.
Bradley tore his ACL during Eagles Flight Night, a night where fans can watch the players practice at Lincoln Financial Field, before the 2009 season on August 2, 2009. He was placed on injured reserve on September 1, and missed the entire season.
