The cash-strapped LA Rams have multiple linebacker holes to fill. Here are 3 reasons to sign former Eagles LB Nigel Bradham to a short-term contract

The LA Rams have neither the funds nor the interest in entering into any bidding wars with other NFL teams in the upcoming 2020 Free Agency market. Like it or not, the Rams are running low on available options to fill over a dozen projected roster openings resulting from expired contracts.

Over a dozen roster openings are simply too many holes to fill with an NFL Draft of only six picks. To fix this roster, the Rams need to add inexpensive veterans now or through Free Agency to ensure that the team can draft the best player available.  Right now, the Rams stand to lose both interior linebackers – Cory Littleton and Bryce Hager.  While the team may be able to re-sign Bryce Hager at an affordable price, (and we believe the Rams should do so), Littleton’s market value may set a new high mark for inside linebacker salaries for the future.

So the Rams must choose an economical path by dangling an opportunity to play on the same defense with All-Pro DT Aaron Donald at a less-than-market-value contract and see if anyone bites.   I believe that former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham will be very tempted to do just that.

The question then becomes, why would the Rams consider signing a player cut by the Philadelphia Eagles? Here are three reasons why the  Rams should do so.
