The Atlanta Falcons today announced that they have signed linebacker Allen Bradford.
Bradford, 5-11, 235 pounds, was originally selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the sixth round (187th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft as a running back out of the University of Southern California. He was signed to the Seahawks practice squad in October of 2011 where he made the switch to linebacker.
Bradford has also spent time with the New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns. He has seen action in 13 career games, including one game with the Seahawks in 2014.
A native of Colton, Calif., Bradford played in 52 games for the Trojans while totaling 1,585 yards on 267 carries (5.9 yards per carry) with 16 touchdowns as a running back. He averaged 7.2 yards per carry in 2010, which ranked second in the nation and was USC's second leading rusher in 2009, earning All-Pac-10 honorable mention.
