How much does Ron Rivera like James Bradberry?

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Former Carolina Panthers CB James Bradberry has been linked with the Redskins in free agency ever since Ron Rivera became the new head coach on New Year's Day. Rivera has several former players entering free agency, but Bradberry will likely be the most expensive one. He also plays a position that the Redskins could be desperate to fill.

Rivera released another high-priced former Panthers cornerback named Josh Norman two weeks ago. Bradberry was drafted after the Panthers rescinded the franchise tag and let him go to free agency, signing with Washington. Will history repeat itself here?

Bradberry was selected in the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL draft. Since entering the league, he has 8 interceptions, 47 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles, 3 sacks, and 279 total tackles. He has played in and started 60 games for the Panthers.

James Bradberry reportedly wants to be paid like the top cornerback in the NFL and get $15+ million per year. He is a good player, but does good get you the top deal in the league? This sounds very similar to the debate over signing Austin Hooper and setting the market at TE. The Redskins made Josh Norman the highest paid CB in the NFL 4 years ago, should they do it again with his replacement?
