You’d think after moving on to the NFC Championship Game, the Philadelphia Eagles and their star players would have more important things on their mind. Nope, instead, Philly still has the NY Giants releasing cornerback James Bradberry on its mind, with the team calling out Big Blue shortly after the final whistle last Saturday night.
Fellow cornerback Darius Slay previously went after the Giants for the offseason move, which Joe Schoen had to make due to salary cap issues. Slay is back at it once again, taking to Twitter to bash the organization. Why, though, dude?
Darius Slay has once again called out the Giants for cutting James Bradberry
Alright Darius, it’s time to let this go and focus on the San Francisco 49ers. At the end of the day, the Giants would have loved to have Bradberry back in East Rutherford for the 2022 campaign, but Schoen was left with no choice here thanks to the mess Dave Gettleman left him. The first-year Giants GM tried trading him, but nothing was able to get done.
The Eagles ended up signing Bradberry to a one-year, $10 million deal. That move for Philly paid off in a big way for them, as Bradberry was strong this campaign and he was able to stick it to his old team in the Divisional Round, intercepting a Daniel Jones pass in the first half. As soon as that happened, Bradberry then trolled the Giants sideline.
Trust us, we hated seeing that play as much as you did, but we know it sure meant a lot to the DB. It was some sweet revenge for Bradberry, who didn’t like the way things ended for him with the G-Men last offseason.
With that said, the fact that Slay and the Eagles are still bringing this up is a bit of a joke, especially when they have a trip to the Super Bowl on the line coming soon. It’s time to move on – the Giants sure have.
