“All signs point” to the release of Giants CB James Bradberry.

Written by Tanner Phifer

James Bradberry, 28, played college football at Samford, and was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He spent all four seasons of his rookie contract with the Panthers. On March 26, 2020, Bradberry signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the New York Giants.

He has been the center of trade rumors for a long time now, but the Giants can save around $10M in cap space by releasing the 28 year old CB.

Teams I’m told that could show lots of interest in Bradberry are the Washington Commanders, Kansas City Chiefs, and Cincinnati Bengals. There are ties with Ron Rivera from his time in Carolina and it makes too much sense for them not to show interest. The Chiefs were one of the many teams involved in trade talks for Bradberry and (at the time free agent) Stephon Gilmore, who they lost out on. They will without a doubt still want to add depth at CB.

The Bengals re-signed CB Eli Apple to a one year deal but also released CB Trae Waynes and are in need of a starting caliber CB.
