Bradham was released on a $500 bond. On Monday, TMZ Sports reported that Bradham "pled not guilty to a concealed weapons charge."
"How does it happen? Just forgot," Bradham told reporters on Oct. 5. "Simple as that. It wasn’t cocked, it was just loaded." He added, "Yeah, you never want to be a distraction. And obviously, that’s what happens," per Dave Zangaro of CSN Philly.
Bradham's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he had no comment about the arrest, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Eagles defensive coordinator spoke about the incident, per Adam Schefter of ESPN:
TMZ Sports reported that Bradham had a loaded gun in a backpack as he passed through security at Miami International Airport. He said he had forgotten he was carrying the gun, and law enforcement officials determined that "it was clear that there was no criminal intent on his part."
This is the second time the 27-year-old has run into legal trouble in Miami.
In July, ESPN.com's Phil Sheridan reported that Bradham turned himself in to authorities following an alleged assault at the Hilton Bentley Miami/South Beach. He allegedly struck a hotel worker, who suffered a broken nose.
Bradham has appeared in three games this year, making 10 combined tackles and intercepting one pass, after signing a two-year, $7 million deal with the Eagles in the offseason.
