With Bradbury's signing, the team has now signed 11 of its 12 selections in the 2019 NFL Draft.

A source confirmed to KSTP's Darren Wolfson that linebacker Eric Kendricks restructured his contract to create the cap space to sign Bradbury.

Bradbury, who is likely to step into a starting role, won the Rimington Trophy as nation's top center last season. He was a first-team All-ACC and AP All-American selection last fall.

After he was picked as the 18th selection overall last month, he sounded excited to get started with his new team.

"I just can't wait to play football again, really," he said. "It's been four months, a lot of steps, but not a lot of football. I'm excited to get on the field, meet teammates and get to work with them."
