Giants Admit They're Working Through Player Issue

There's an expectation in the Big Apple that the New York Giants will release veteran cornerback James Bradberry. However, GM Joe Schoen has yet to make such a decision.

Were the Giants to cut Bradberry, it'd save them $10 million in cap space. The NFC East franchise could then use that money for recent draftees.

At this point, Bradberry remains on the roster. Schoen plans to have conversations with him and his representative in coming weeks.

A decision could soon be made.

“We are going to work on that,” Schoen said in a press conference, via Pro Football Talk. “We have had some conversations. I’ve talked to his representative. We’ll see where that goes. I don’t have a definitive answer on that right now, but we are working towards some contingency plans. . . . I’m not going to put a timeline on it as we are working through this. So I don’t know how long it will take, but we are working through some things.”

The Giants were one of the biggest winners of the 2022 NFL Draft.

They bolstered their trenches, adding Kavyon Thibodeaux and Evan Neal with the Nos. 5 and 7 picks, respectively. Both players will sign pretty significant rookie contracts.

The Giants could use some cap space right now. Freeing up Bradberry would go a long way.
