He was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, however, after being released by the Bucs, he was claimed off waivers by the Seattle Seahawks in October, 2011. He was waived two days later, and re-signed to the Seahawks' practice squad. He was switched from fullback to linebacker after re-signing with the Seahawks. In December, 2012 Bradford was signed to the Seahawks 53-Man Roster. He says he's still getting used to playing on the other side of the ball and feels has a lot of room to grow. Current starter Bobby Wagner is sitting out with a sore shoulder and that give Bradford an opportunity to show the coaching staff what he's got and he not taking the chance for granted. "I feel good, but I’m not comfortable," Bradford said, Eric D. William of the Olympian. "So I still feel like I’ve got room for improvement. And I’ve just got to keep riding on the horse and taking stepping stones, and just getting there. I’ve got 10 other guys that depend on me to make sure I know what I’m doing," "And I don’t take days for granted. I’ve got to take care of my body because I’ve only got one. And then I’ve got to get in that film, text Coach Norton and do whatever I have to do to be on my game." "I run through fullbacks," Bradford said. "I’m going to hit the running back. I’ll hit the receiver – wherever the ball goes, I’m going to go, and I’m going to crush it, regardless. That’s just my mentality since I’ve been playing football." "It’s not overnight," Bradford said. "They had me on practice squad for two years, and I learned a lot. It’s kind of a development process. Coach Norton told me it’s time to go, so I got on the horse and I just kept going. "I study every night, make sure I’m in my playbook. I watch all the practices, make all the calls and make sure the defense is lined up."
