It was good to see Panthers and ex-Bears WR Muhsin Muhammad raving about his ex-teammate and new Chiefs WR Mark Bradley (thanks for adding that to the comments, Jeremy). As a K-State fan, I saw plenty of Bradley back during his Oklahoma days. I remember thinking he was going to be a stud in the pros, because he was making play after play against a K-State secondary which now has a bunch of guys who make a living playing on Sundays.
In the pros, Bradley has underwhelmed a bit. I blame that on injuries and inconsistent quarterback play. After all, it was Muhammad who said Chicago is where “receivers go to die.” And Muhammad has backed up his statement with his resurgent play in Carolina through the first four games of this season. As an avid fantasy player, I’m always looking to claim that next breakout receiver off waivers. There were a couple times that I made Bradley a speculative add because I was so impressed with a particular game performance.
Basically, he has a lot of potential. He is extremely injury prone, however, which could continue to hold him back. I like this signing a ton, though. This is not another Devard Darling signing; it’s much more like the Eddie Kennison move or my proposed Matt Jones move had he of been cut (both were first-round picks, Bradley was a second-rounder). What am I trying to say here? That if Bradley flops, and he definitely could, it will be because injuries have taken a toll, and not because he never had the talent to hack it in the first place.
What does everybody else think about the addition of Bradley?
