Stewart Bradley is a former American football linebacker. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft. On December 23, 2007, Bradley became the first player in the NFL history to start in his first NFL game and make his first interception and first sack at the same time.

On January 6, 2009, Bradley was named to the 2008 Sports Illustrated All-Pro team in only his first year as a starter. He was placed on injured reserve on September 1 after he tore his ACL during Eagles Flight Night on August 2, 2009. He consequently missed the entire season.

He signed with the Arizona Cardinals on July 29, 2011, and was cut on March 1, 2013. He signed with the Denver Broncos on March 13, 2013, and was placed on injured reserve on August 31, 2013, thus ending his season.

Bradley played college football for the University of Nebraska where he also pursued a degree in accounting and finance. He was born on November 2, 1983, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He played his junior year at Highland High School and began his senior year at quarterback, then switched to fullback, then returned to quarterback before injuries sidelined him the last few games of the season. He also starred in rugby and won three straight national championships with the Highland Club (the team that was featured in the movie Forever Strong). He is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

After retiring from football, he joined Goldman Sachs as an investment banking analyst in their technology media and telecom group.[1]
