Bradberry Is Going To Be Costly

And then you stop playing good.

(granted, not all the time but it does happen an awful lot)

As young as Bradberry and Shaq are, I would be tempted to try to sign one of them to a reasonable 3 or 4-year deal. That gets them to age 29 and they can then cash in on their final FA contract. 

The key here is reasonable. I wouldn't press the issue too far before letting them go and working to find a replacement in the draft. 

Norman was different, as he was already 28 years old when the Panthers released him. Any contract extension would have reached his early 30s. It wasn't handled correctly, but the Panthers were right in not signing Norman to an extension.

Bradberry genuinely seems like the kind of guy who would continue to work his ass off even if he did get paid.

Of course, other guys have "seemed that way" too.

Deon Grant, Dante Wesley, Ricky Manning, Richard Marshall, to name a few. Could also throw in Charles Godfrey and Sherrod Martin for discussion as well.

And I'm not sure about "losing out" to other teams versus just not offering a new contract, because I think both Manning and Marshall signed elsewhere as UFAs. And I'm not saying any of these guys are/were better than Bradberry, but I do most of these guys played on this team when strong DB talent was kinda rare.

Outside of maybe Manning, all those guys were expendable

You can be assured that both Shaq and Bradbury  are gonna chase the cash

if we pay, they will stay...and both will want more than they are worth

Manning was expendable because of the rule change.  He wasn’t a DB that could play in the pass era

Manning became expendable after they changed the rules.

So to answer the question, we really didn't lose anyone who we really wanted to keep due to salary issues under Hurney. So there is no reason to believe we won't keep Bradberry or fail to pay him what he was worth.
