The New York Giants released Pro Bowl cornerback James Bradberry on Monday in a cost-savings move.
The Giants will carve out $10.2 million in cap savings and incur a dead cap hit of $11.7 million. The move comes after the club was unable to find a trade partner for Bradberry, who signed a three-year, $43.5 million deal with the Giants in March 2020.
Bradberry, 28, had a career-high four interceptions in 17 games (16 starts) in 2021 for the Giants. He had also had 17 passes defensed to go with two fumble recoveries.
He made the Pro Bowl after the 2020 season.
Bradberry has 15 career INTs and 82 passes defensed in 92 career games (91 starts) for the Carolina Panthers (2016-19) and Giants. The Panthers selected Bradberry in the second round of the 2016 draft.
