A second-round pick of the Bears in 2005, Bradley's career has mostly been a disappointment.
He had his best season when he was a rookie, making 18 catches. That number fell to 14 the following season and six last year.
His lack of production aside, I actually like this signing. Wide receivers are rarely good in their first season or two and the Bears have been saddled with the worst QB situation in the league for the last couple of years (just ahead of the Chiefs). Bradley's still a young player (26), his yards per catch have been solid through his career (while playing in an offense as inept as Kansas City's), and his lack of production appears to be more a factor of usage rather than ability.
Will he stick? No clue...maybe he's another Eddie Kennison, maybe he's another Devard Darling. It's not promising that the Bears, who are definitely in need of quality receivers, let him go. But then the Bears front office's record on evaluating talent is so unimpressive as of late that it wouldn't be a surprise if they let a decent player slip through the cracks as well. One thing is certain, Bradley will get a shot to show he belongs in a starting lineup in Kansas City, considering the injuries and underwhelming performances from all KC receivers not named Bowe.
Update: Apparently health has been an issue with Bradley as well. He had surgery to repair a torn ACL in 2005, and his route running has reportedly been questionable. But he appears to be healthy now, and as such he's not a horrible signing for the Chiefs...especially if he ends up taking B.J. Sams' heretofore wasted roster spot.
