Ron Rivera misses out on ‘Commanthers’ connect James Bradberry to Eagles

When the New York Giants released cornerback James Bradberry as a cap casualty, the Washington Commanders emerged as the immediate favorites to sign him. Bradberry’s connection to current Commanders head coach Ron Rivera was obvious, stemming from their days together with the Carolina Panthers. 

Rivera arrived in Washington in January 2020 with nearly full control over the roster. In his three offseasons with the Commanders, he has brought in a great deal of former Panthers players, coaches, and front office personnel. 

Just this offseason Washington signed four former Panthers players, offensive guards Andrew Nowell and Trai Turner as well as defensive end Efe Obada and kick returner/wide receiver Alex Erickson. 

Social media has trolled the Commanders-Panthers connections with the nickname “Commanthers.”
