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.
