Chicago Bears[edit]

Due to a season-ending injury against the Detroit Lions,[1] Bradley was a small part of the Bears 2005 offense, starting only eight games, and recording just 18 receptions for 230 yards.

Following an injury to Bernard Berrian during week nine of the 2006 season, Bradley became a productive asset for the Bears’ offense. While filling in for Berrian in the following weeks, Bradley caught two touchdown passes for 202 yards. He scored a 75-yard touchdown during the season finale in a 26-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Bradley was released by the Bears on September 23, 2008 after the team signed cornerback Marcus Hamilton.

Kansas City Chiefs[edit]

Bradley was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs on October 1, 2008. He threw the first touchdown pass of his career to quarterback Tyler Thigpen, on a wide-receiver reverse trick play, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bradley was released by the team on December 22, 2009 after the team re-signed wide receiver Quinten Lawrence.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers[edit]

Bradley was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on December 23, 2009.

Bradley was released by the Buccaneers on June 16, 2010 to make room for sixth-round draft pick Brent Bowden. He failed to appear in a single game for the Buccaneers.

New Orleans Saints[edit]

Bradley signed with the New Orleans Saints on August 6, 2010. The Saints released Bradley on August 24.
