Joe Schoen tells Carton and Roberts James Bradberry situation could be solved by end of week


Joe Schoen has been working to deal cornerback James Bradberry since he first took the GM job with the Giants, trying to work the team out of a tight cap situation to continue a rebuild under a new regime.

Bradberry is still a Giant after the NFL Draft, but Schoen told Carton and Roberts on Wednesday that the situation could be resolved by the end of the week.

“We’re working through that right now," Schoen told Craig and Evan. "His agents have been great, we’ve been in constant communication. I’ve talked to James, it’s been very professional throughout the whole process, and we should have some resolution, hopefully, by the end of the week.

“It’s unfortunate, because he’s a great kid… Listen, he’s a starting corner in the league. It’s just where we are financially, we still gotta sign our draft picks, we gotta be able to sign our practice squad, and then have replacement costs early in the season.”

That all but confirms that Bradberry’s tenure with Big Blue is over, given the 28-year-old’s three-year, $45 million he signed before the 2020 season, and the fact that New York needs about double the cap space it currently has to lock up all its draft picks. So, Bradberry is almost certainly gone, and it sounds like we will find out what avenue Schoen will take in the coming days.
