Giants cornerback James Bradberry remains on the roster, but it might not be for much longer.

For now, Bradberry is out of sight but not out of mind.

He did not report for the start of voluntary offseason workouts with the team and is not expected to report, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports. The Giants hope to trade Bradberry to create much needed salary cap space.

But — surprise! — no team appears eager to take on his $21.8 million cap hit in the final year of his contract, especially when the Giants might cut Bradberry in the absence of suitor. Bradberry likely would already have hit free agency if not for the fact that a trade would save the Giants $12.1 million, while cutting him would save $10.1 million.

The Giants will have to move sooner than later as they still need to clear more cap space to sign all of their draft choices.

Bradberry, 28, made the Pro Bowl in 2020. He has 380 tackles, 15 interceptions and 82 pass breakups in 92 career games.

  1. James Bradberry played well for the NY Giants and was a class act. I would love to see him go to a Super Bowl contender and get invited to more pro bowl games. Good luck to you JB!

  2. Dave Gettleman overpaid Bradberry, Adoree Jackson and Kenny Golladay. Schoen has no cap space to sign his draftees. The gift that keeps giving. Who was watching the store?

  3. Nothing helps facilitate a trade as much as being a jerk. Good strategy there Einstein.

  4. Good but not great cornerback and the difference in cutting him vs trading him isn’t that much in the big picture. Just let him go and stop wasting everyone’s time.

  5. If anyone were to trade for him then they’d already have a contract reworked and extended. They won’t get hit with the full load this year unless they want to.

  6. Bradberry is a very good CB still in his prime. He was probably the best player on the entire team in 2020. In today’s NFL, you need good cornerbacks or you’re toast. The Giants should restructure his contract, extend it another year or two, and lessen the cap hit for 2022. Looking at 2023 they currently have $90 million in cap space.
