Looking at the other moves that have been made which include signing defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and trading for defensive end Michael Bennett, there is a good chance that Philadelphia's defense will be even better than previous year.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the defending Super Bowl 52 champs have re-signed linebacker Nigel Bradham to a five-year, $40 million deal.

While bringing back Bradham is the most expensive move the Eagles made, trading for Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett is the arguably the most surprising. He continued to come up big in the postseason, where he had 15 total tackles and a sack in three games.

The Crawfordsville, Fl. native then became a full-time starter for the Bills in 2014, racking up 104 tackles, 2.5 sacks, a pair of forced fumbles and seven passes defended.

Bradham previously played for defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz in Buffalo and joined the Eagles on a two-year, $7 million contract in 2016.

Many have speculated whether or not the Eagles would be able to afford to keep both Bradham and fellow linebacker Mychal Kendricks due to the team's salary cap situation. After being on the market for the entirety of last offseason, he ended up staying in Philly, starting 13 games and winning a Super Bowl championship.
