Allen Bradford is extremely athletic. There is no hiding that. But that hasn’t quite translated into the NFL. Bradford, when playing brings a lot of energy and makes plays from time to time, but it would be bad if the Falcons had to rely on him to play the majority of the snaps. Bradford is perfect in his current role. He is a great special teams player and works hard. That’ all we need him to be.
