Even though the Giants are presently 0-5, there have been a few bright spots that make you believe better days are ahead. Not many, but a few!
One of those bright spots has been cornerback James Bradberry.
The Giants signed James Bradberry to a three year, $45 million deal, with $32 million guaranteed. And so far, he's been worth every penny.
Through five weeks, Bradberry has 14 solo tackles, 17 combined tackles, one interception, nine passes broken up, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.
Those are incredible numbers.
Week one was his worst performance while guarding Juju Smith-Schuster and allowing him to rake in six receptions for 69 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
He held Allen Robinson to three receptions for 33 yards and zero touchdowns in week two.
He held Kendrick Bourne to four receptions for 63 yards and zero in touchdowns in week three.
He held Robert Woods to six receptions for 36 yards and zero touchdowns in week four.
He held Amari Cooper to one reception for eight yards and zero touchdowns in week five.
So yeah, he's playing at an elite level right now.
According to PFF, he's currently the number two highest graded corner this season, just behind Jaire Alexander on the Green Bay Packers.
You could very much make the argument that James Bradberry is playing like the best cornerback in the NFL right now, and we're here for it!
What do you think? Is James Bradberry the best cornerback in football right now?
