James Bradberry of the Eagles Responds Gracefully to Deebo’s Disparaging Comment

Published on


PHILADELPHIA – James Bradberry took the high road when asked about San Francisco 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel calling him “trash.”

After the Philadelphia Eagles thrashed the Niners in last season’s NFC Championship Game, Samuel called Bradberry a “trash” player and declared that San Fran was hands down the better team. He also guaranteed a win against the Eagles on Sunday.

Samuel didn’t back down from those remarks earlier in the week, with the 49ers scheduled to visit Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday (4:25 p.m./FOX).

Bradberry, on the other hand, does not engage in giving other teams bulletin board material. He emphasized that he is accountable for his actions on the field and would not whine like Samuel and his teammates after last year’s game.

During Wednesday’s open locker room session, Bradberry said, “It’s never been part of my personality or my game to say things in the media to get another team riled up. I try to keep everything generic and just go out there and handle my business when it comes down to playing the game.”

However, Bradberry didn’t ignore the “trash” comment. He stated, “You can’t ignore it. Of course, I don’t necessarily like what he said. I wish he would’ve used a better word to describe my play, but it is what it is. At the end of the day, all I can control is my work ethic and what I do out there.”

Last Sunday, Bradberry intercepted his first pass of the season in an overtime win over the Buffalo Bills, bringing his career total to 19 interceptions. Reflecting on the criticism he’s faced throughout his career, he said, “Negative comments don’t bother me like that. I just try to control my work ethic and let the product speak for itself.”

Regarding Samuel’s comments about last year’s NFC Championship Game, Bradberry emphasized the importance of protecting the quarterback in the league. He reminded that the 49ers didn’t protect their quarterback and that played a significant role in their loss.
