A possible contract extension between the Buffalo Bills and linebacker Nigel Bradham has been on our radar since early January, and an opportunity exists for the two sides to talk about a deal at the owners' meetings in Arizona this week.
ESPN's Mike Rodak reported on Monday that the Bills are expected to talk to Bradham's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, about a deal this week, but Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News pointed out later that no talks are yet scheduled between the two sides.

Bradham, who is entering the final year of his four-year rookie deal signed in 2012, is set to make more than $1.5 million in 2015, a large chunk of which he earned by hitting playing time escalators. Turning 26 in September, Bradham enjoyed a breakout 2014 season in which he not only emerged as a three-down capable player, but put up high-quality production (104 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and an interception), as well.
