Bradley, a Highland High graduate, had his share of injuries during his four years in Philadelphia he missed all of 2009 and part of 2010. But he gets a fresh start in Arizona, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt is high on him.
“I think when Stewart’s playing, he’s one of the top linebackers in the game. He’s had a couple injuries here and there,” Whisenhunt said. “The opportunity there for a big time playmaker at that position is something we thought we had a need for. And we thought we got a very good player. . His coverage ability, some of the things he can do in space, gives us another weapon that we can use in different capacities.”
Collie, the former BYU star, was statistically one of the best receivers in the NFL last season, catching 58 passes eight were touchdowns for 649 yards in just nine games. But concussions ended cheap football jerseys

I just kind of brush it aside because it is one of those things that it is in the past and it’s unfortunate. I was unlucky, but I’m just looking forward to this next season and getting on with it.”
After four seasons and three teams, it finally looks like the BYU standout will get a chance to lead an NFL offense in 2011. He hasn’t been named the starter yet, says the Washington Post, but it’s clear that he tops the current depth chart.
