This past weekend, reports emerged that the Kansas City Chiefs are interested in acquiring star cornerback James Bradberry by way of trade with the New York Giants.

According to NFL insider Aaron Wilson, the Chiefs are still "extremely" interested in making this deal go down.

"Compensation discussions have ranged from a late-round selection going to New York in a possible deal to swapping picks in the middle rounds, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly," Wilson reports.

When asked about the potential trade, head coach Brian Daboll didn't shut down the possibility.

“That’s where it’s at,” Daboll said during the annual NFL owners’ meetings. “It’s a long way until the season starts and probably a lot of things that could go either way. I think it’s just a fluid situation.”

Since entering the league as a second-round pick for the Carolina Panthers in 2016, the shutdown corner has logged 15 interceptions, 82 passes defended and 380 tackles. Through his first year with the Giants organization in 2020, he notched his first Pro-Bowl selection.

Bradberry is set to earn $13.4 million in base salary with the Giants in 2022. A decision to trade the 28-year-old CB would save the organization $12.1 million in cap space this coming season.

If the Chiefs do land Bradberry in a trade, they'll likely sign him to a longterm deal, per Wilson.
