Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham was flagged for a personal foul when he two hand touched a sliding Blake Bortles. That’s not even an exaggeration.
The Jaguars quarterback took off after the pocket collapsed and picked up a few yards with his legs. As Bradham approached, Bortles went into a late slide.
Bradham touched Bortles on the chest with two hands as the two slid into each other. That was apparently too much contact for today’s NFL and a flag was thrown.

Pretty soon there will be no contact of any kind allowed with a quarterback, not even two hand touch. We’re insanely close to flags being worn by QBs.
