As the Eagles parted ways with one former starting cornerback on Tuesday, the Eagles acquired another cornerback who is looking to take advantage of a new opportunity. The Eagles agreed to terms with former Rams cornerback Bradley Fletcher on a two-year deal Tuesday.
A third-round selection of St. Louis in 2009, the 6-0, 200-pound Fletcher posted 169 tackles and five interceptions in his four seasons with the Rams, starting in 26 of 43 games. The 26-year-old played in all 16 games (four starts) in 2012 and notched 25 tackles, eight passes defensed, one forced fumble and one sack.
Bradley’s best season came in 2010 when he started in 15 of 16 games and led the team with four interceptions. He was named the Rams’ recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award that year after rebounding from a 2009 knee injury that forced him to miss the final 11 games of his rookie campaign.
Bradley starred collegiately at Iowa and earned All-Big 10 honorable mention honors as a senior after starting 13 games and notching three interceptions for a Hawkeye defense that ranked second in the conference and 10th nationally in total defense (291.3 yards allowed per game). The Youngstown, Ohio, native earned all-state honors in both football and basketball as a senior.
