Is this next-level trolling or is Philadelphia Eagles cornerback James Bradberry actually trying to get on good terms with the NY Giants? For the past few months, the veteran cornerback has taken any opportunity placed in front of him to take a proverbial jab at his former team.
Trolling the G-Men after intercepting Daniel Jones was tough to see. Now, though, it seems as if Bradberry is singing a completely different tune.
While speaking to NJ Advance Media’s Bob Brookover at the Super Bowl, the standout CB said he wouldn’t rule out re-signing with the Giants in free agency if he’s in need of a new team. Would fans welcome him back?
James Bradberry said he’d be open to returning to the Giants and paid big compliment to DB coach Jerome Henderson.

This feels a bit weird, especially since Bradberry and Darius Slay have been taking turns in going after the Giants for the way they handled things with the former Giant last offseason. Bradberry was released at the final hour, which no question had a negative impact on his ability to chase a bigger contract in free agency.
With that said, he never wanted to leave East Rutherford in the first place. Bradberry was a cap casualty, with Dave Gettleman giving him a three-year, $45 million contract back in 2020. Schoen couldn’t have his cap hit on the books for the 2022 campaign, leading to the messy split between the two parties.
Bradberry is focused on trying to help the Eagles, a team which gave him a $9 year deal, win the Super Bowl on Sunday night against the Kansas City Chiefs. After that, he’ll be able to start thinking about his plans for next season.
He’ll be a free agent soon enough and if the Eagles don’t want to bring him back, perhaps the Giants could look to getting something done. You can only imagine the meeting between him and Schoen would be quite awkward if something is scheduled, but if Bradberry wants to come in and help out the young secondary, then maybe it’d be wise to consider it.
Fans are split on this, but you never know, maybe Bradberry will be back in your lives before you know it.
