Given the chance Thursday, Bradford picked up where Wagner ended last season, leading the Seahawks in tackles (eight) from his linebacker position.
"The adrenaline was going," Bradford said, per the Tacoma News Tribune. "I don't know if it was nervousness, but I just wanted to do everything right. And sometimes you can't play like that. Even if you're wrong, you have to go 100 miles per hour at it."
At 5-foot-11 and 235 pounds, Bradford has the size and nimbleness needed to play in the middle. He clearly won't threaten Wagner come the regular season, but Bradford proved Thursday he can be a good backup and insurance in case of injury.
