NY Giants fans are calling out James Bradberry on Twitter for Eagles move
He’s unfortunately headed to the enemy. From the moment the release of former NY Giants cornerback James Bradberry was made official, reports and rumors surfaced about him potentially joining the Philadelphia Eagles. People all over New York and New Jersey didn’t want to see it happen, but their nightmare came true with Bradberry signing a one-year deal with Philly.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, 11 teams reached out to Bradberry to show interest, but he decided the Eagles were the best fit for him. This is painful for the Giants, as the last thing they wanted to see was for him to join an NFC East rival. For the fanbase, they are not happy whatsoever, with several people taking to Twitter to call out Bradberry for his decision.
NY Giants fans can’t believe James Bradberry would sign with the Eagles
Per Schefter, Bradberry’s deal is for $10 million. What hurts the Giants even more in this case is that they have a larger dead cap hit, of $11.7 million, than what the Eagles are going to end up paying him for the 2022 campaign. This makes fans infuriated with former general manager Dave Gettleman, but they’re still pretty ticked at Bradberry as well.
Bradberry joined the Giants in 2020 after spending four years with the Carolina Panthers. The 6-1, 210-pounder made the Pro Bowl that campaign and then followed things up with a career-high four interceptions last season. However, Bradberry did struggle at times in ’21 and caused plenty of frustration when he was in coverage.
Because of his major drop off from 2020 to 2021, new GM Joe Schoen wasn’t going to let his $21.8 million cap hit for 2022 go down. Schoen tried trading him, even getting something almost done with the Texans, but nothing was able to get fully finalized. Now, Bradberry will be looking to make plays for the Eagles, but people who love the Giants won’t be cheering him on at all.
If anything, they’ll be ready to let him have it in person when Philly heads to MetLife Stadium. These teams will be playing twice this season, with the first matchup coming in Week 14 at Philly. Things will then head to East Rutherford in Week 18 for the season finale.
