Not everything is rainbows and butterflies with Bradberry though. If there’s one weakness in his game its tackling. Last season he missed nine tackles, good for a 12.2 missed tackle percentage, and yielded 167 yards after the catch.

Expect Bradberry’s numbers to improve with the New York Giants, now that he’s no longer in the NFC South, defending elite WRs and gunslingers almost every week. It is also worth noting that Bradberry looked as good as he did playing for a defense that allowed more points-per-game than the G-Men did in 2019.
He doesn’t make many interceptions but he breaks up plenty of passes and makes it difficult for the quarterback to get the ball to his receivers. Bradberry’s veteran presence should help with the development of Deandre Baker, Julian Love, and Sam Beal. I fully expect Bradberry to be CB1, Baker CB2, and Beal manning the slot corner with Corey Ballentine rotating in when one of the three need a breather or the formation calls for an extra defensive back.
Bradberry is a very good addition for the Giants. But again, it goes back to having faith in Joe Judge and the coaching staff to keep their word to be teachers. Instructing players on the fundamentals, making sure they play the game the right way and putting them in a position to succeed on game day will make a huge difference over the product Giants fans have seen the past few years.
