3. Colts defensive coordinator Gus Bradley
With the Colts probably moving on from Jeff Saturday, it is very likely that defensive coordinator Gus Bradley will be back on the open market and will be a hot commodity for teams in need of someone to fill that spot.
Bradley has been coaching in the NFL for the last 18 years and has 15 more seasons of coaching in college, so experience certainly isn’t an issue for him. What makes a coach like Bradley even more tantalizing is how many pass-rushers he has helped master their craft, most notably Joey Bosa and Maxx Crosby, two Pro Bowl-level players
Considering all the pass-rushing talent the Giants have on their roster, Bradley and the team could be a match made in heaven if Martindale decides to move on from New York. Almost every single team that Bradley has coached for has not only produced elite talent, but has been quite productive on defense. Even this season, despite losing key players like Shaq Leonard and Kenny Moore, the Colts still had a rather solid defense.
Bradley has always done a tremendous job at coaching up his players while also putting out an effective scheme, two things the Giants are in need of. The only problem may be that Bradley typically runs a 4-3 defense, which doesn’t really fit the Giants current personnel. However, with how versatile some of the players are, it wouldn’t surprise us if it still worked out regardless.
