The Philadelphia Eagles officially released Nigel Bradham on Wednesday afternoon after the news was first reported on Tuesday. The veteran linebacker has since posted a goodbye message via his Twitter account.

Bradham also retweeted a number of fans who replied to him:

It’s understandable why the Eagles decided to move on from Bradham, who turns 31 in September, but it sure is a bummer to actually see him go.

Bradham was a good starter for this team and he was especially excellent during Philly’s Super Bowl season in 2017. He had that flat out dominant game against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football that year. That win was when we started to really know it was going to be a special season.

It’s not impossible that Bradham returns to the Eagles this offseason if he can’t find a better deal with a new team. But there’s obviously a good chance he’s going to move on.

In any case, Bradham will always be a Super Bowl hero in Philly. Thanks for the memories, Nigel.
