With the NY Giants restructuring pro bowl corner James Bradberry’s contract to create $2.7M in cap space New York could see some new additions to the roster

James Bradberry originally signed with the NY Giants in March of 2020 on a 3 year $45M contract.

In his first year on the Giants Bradberry had an amazing year. Tallying 54 tackles, two forced fumbles, three interceptions, and 18 pass deflections. Making a pro bowl and being ranked 74th on the NFL top 100 players list.

This season however, Bradberry has been off to a slower start than usual. Allowing a 77.3% completion percentage when targeted, compared to 61.5% last year. While also giving up 2 TD’s already (4 last year) and allowing a career high 86 QBR when targeted. Not a good start for the pro bowl corner.

The NY Giants restructured Bradberry’s contract by backloading it, which means that he will be getting payed less this season but more in the future so New York has more cap flexibility now.

Here are some move the NY Giants could make after restructuring Bradberry’s contract

Signing Forrest Lamp:

With the Giants sustaining multiple injuries to their interior offensive line, alongside with the healthy linemen struggling. It only makes sense that the Giants would bring in a proven, young guard, right?

In 2020 Forrest Lamp played the most snaps in the league among guards at 1,174, and in these snaps he only gave up 2 sacks.

After signing with the Bills in April, Lamp suffered a calf injury and after being placed on IR he was cut.

Lamp is now fully healthy and can provide some solid snaps at either guard position for a Giants offensive line that desperately needs an upgrade.
