James Bradberry – CB (Eagles,1 yr, $7.3 million)
James Bradberry was cut from the Giants and subsequently picked up by their NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles, but the Atlanta Falcons should have intervened and stolen what was one of the biggest steals of free agency.
Bradberry has been playing like a top-tier cornerback and has been in tandem with Darius Slay this year. Instead, he should have been opposite of A.J. Terrell on the Falcons’ defense, either way, it is a duo of elite corners.
Casey Hayward signed with the Falcons and it was a good signing but he has been injured. Bradberry has been on the field for the Eagles and has played well all year, so it isn’t much of an argument between the two.
Hopefully, Hayward will come back with vengeance and show that he was the real steal of free agency.
