The New York Giants’ big spending at cornerback over the past two seasons has been an abject failure that has exacerbated the organization’s cap issues.

While James Bradberry made a Pro Bowl in 2021, he regressed this season as he pulled down four interceptions but allowed opposing quarterbacks a 99.7 passer rating when targeting him. If the NY Giants are entering an overdue full-fledged rebuild, cutting Bradberry to create $12.14 million in cap space while triggering a $9.72 million dead-money charge, may prove more valuable than the veteran’s onfield contributions.

Meanwhile, finding a trade partner to move Adoree’ Jackson might be a worthwhile venture for the New York Giants’ new general manager, as trading Jackson would create $11 million in cap space with a $4 million dead-money charge, if a trade is made post-June 1.
