Nigel Bradham Charged With Possession Of Marijuana

As the Bills continue to move on their journey towards the start of the regular season we now have our first problem that I can recall dealing with a player. Nigel Bradham was issued an appearance ticket for marijuana in the Town of Tonawanda where he was pulled over at 2:01am early Saturday Morning for a window tint violation. Bradham from reports tried to deny any drugs within the vehicle but shortly after the discussion with the officer revealed what he had.

Bradham last season had a pretty good rookie year and with the experience he gained I thought would be pegged for a breakout sophomore campaign. He playing alongside Alonso has been very good from all reports. I hope this instance doesn’t take away from what these guys will look to do this season but we will now wait to hear what could be handed down as a suspension from the league or right from the Bills organization.

The thing I first thought about was Mike Pettine. Did he at any time tell his players if you get caught doing something you shouldn’t you will be dealt with? I’m sure something was said but a drug charge may be something bigger that this team doesn’t want to deal with. I’m not saying cut the guy but maybe a multiple game suspension from the team if the league doesn’t do anything. I could just seeing something happening down the line and a player getting suspended from this same instance and if nothing’s done here players will be looking back at it. I think Nigel put himself in a situation where this has to be dealt with so these guys know this organization does not want to deal with these actions.

What do you think about the whole situation? You can check out the Tonawanda News article as well here.
