Cards close to contract agreement with Bradley

The Arizona Cardinals made a splash this week by trading for QB Kevin Kolb, and now they’re close to bolstering their defense — pulling again from the Eagles’ roster.

The Cardinals are close to reaching a contract agreement with LB Stewart Bradley, with only minor paperwork standing in way of a deal, a development I first reported Thursday.

Bradley, an unrestricted free agent, started 29 games and amassed 186 total tackles and 3.0 sacks in his three seasons, all in Philadelphia.

The four-year veteran started 12 games in 2010, but missed action because of a concussion and a dislocated elbow. He missed the entire 2009 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament sustained during training camp.

Bradley, who can play multiple positions, is a natural fit as the Cardinals switch to a 3-4 defensive scheme this season.
