Good morning, New York Giants fans!
James Bradberry a “sleeper?”
Bradberry inked a three-year, $45 million deal with the Giants. With that kind of money involved, how on earth can Bradberry be considered a “sleeper addition”? Well, that is less costly than the contracts signed by the two CBs listed just above. But that’s not my true rationale for Bradberry’s placement here — it’s more about how his signing felt completely lost in the free agency frenzy. On the surface, this is surprising, considering Bradberry joined a banner NFL franchise located in the media capital of the world. But first of all, the G-Men are in the midst of a rebuild, so it’s hard for a single acquisition to really move the needle. And then there’s the player himself: Bradberry’s far from a household name. Drafted in the second round out of Samford back in 2016, he’s never made a Pro Bowl while toiling away in relative obscurity on a Panthers team that posted just one winning season during his tenure. The enticing part: Bradberry, still just 26, is fully battle-tested — and not just because of the four years’ starting experience. Bradberry often travels with the opponents’ No. 1.
How will this impact the draft stock of a player the Giants could be targeting?
There are a few players the Giants might target on this list.
This would, of course, wreak havoc with the NFL Draft and the entire 2021 offseason.

Of course this was eventually going to come up. Andrew Brandt says there is $56 million on the line for players this offseason.
The Patriot Way is seeping into Dave Gettleman’s thinking.
