ESPN thinks a Philadelphia Eagles player is in line for a bounce-back season in 2022.

On Tuesday, ESPN released their list of bounce-back candidates for this season and they included Eagles cornerback James Bradberry on their list.

From ESPN:

What went wrong: After a career-best season in 2020, Bradberry had arguably a career-worst campaign in 2021. He allowed the highest completion percentage of his six-year career by a wide margin (65.2%). It’s not too worrisome, however, as his ball production was still there, with four picks and 13 pass breakups. — PFF

Outlook for 2022: Early signs indicate Bradberry is poised to bounce back. He has had one of the best training camps of any player on the Eagles’ roster, routinely coming up with pass breakups and making life tough on the likes of DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown. Bradberry likes it best when he is asked to play a healthy mixture of man and zone coverages, which should be a match for defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon’s system. — Tim McManus

The Eagles signed Bradberry earlier this spring after he was released by the New York Giants.

Bradberry, who reached the Pro-Bowl in 2020, wasn’t released because he’s not a good player anymore — he was released because the Giants couldn’t afford him. So instead of working out a trade with another team, they released him and allowed one of their NFC East rivals to sign him (they’re probably going to regret that).

New York’s loss is Philadelphia’s gain. Bradberry appears poised to play a key role in the Eagles’ defense this season.
