One day after word came out that Nigel Bradham was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, the Bills linebacker met with the media at training camp.

Bradham told reporters at St. John Fisher College Tuesday morning that he regrets the incident, and he does not want it to be a distraction to his teammates.

“Obviously, I had a matter that happened to me,” Bradham said after the Tuesday morning walk-through.

“I have to abide by the rules and I know there are some legal issues. I pretty much just have to take them as how they come and see what the league does. I’ll try not to be a distraction to the team.”

The Tonawanda News reported Monday that Bradham was stopped by Tonawanda police early Saturday morning and issued an appearance ticket for possession of marijuana and a traffic citation for having illegally tinted windows in his vehicle.

“It’s a legal issue,” Bradham said Tuesday morning. “I made a mistake. That was it.”

Bradham later added that he was disappointed in his conduct.

“Oh, yeah, most definitely,” he said. “It was a bad decision.”

Bradham says he’s awaiting word from the NFL on whether his actions violate the league’s personal conduct policy. He expects to hear from league officials in the next couple of days.
