2018 Super Bowl champion Nigel Bradham is in major trouble with the law. The former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker was stopped in his C8 Corvette by Leon County, Florida police who smelled marijuana. Bradham was discovered to have 3.5 pounds of marijuana as well as a Smith & Wesson Pistol. The stop took place on Saturday, November 13.
Court documents obtained by TMZ reveal the stop was initiated when the plate on the Corvette didn’t match the registry. They then confronted the NFL free-agent linebacker about his marijuana use. Bradham allegedly lied about the origin of the weed, saying he forgot his medical marijuana card.
A quick medical marijuana database revealed to the police that Nigel Bradham is not a registered MMJ patient. The marijuana was packaged in ten small plastic bags inside of a satchel. The satchel also contained the Smith & Wesson.
The Glock 23 pistol came back stolen out of Missouri when police ran a check on the weapon. Bradham was taken into custody and booked on three felonies. He was released on bond on Sunday.
A career journeyman, Nigel Bradham started his career with the Buffalo Bills in 2012. He played in most of the team’s games for three years, starting quite a few. He signed a $2.5 million contract with a $462,551 signing bonus after the Bills drafted him in the fourth round.
In 2016, he signed a two-year $7 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. There, he went on to help the Eagles win Super Bowl LII against the Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. He was suspended in 2018 after a battery incident and his career never fully recovered.
