Darius Slay once again trolls Giants for releasing CB James Bradberry
There’s nothing Darius Slay loves more than trolling the New York Giants. Except for getting interceptions, of course.
During the 2022 offseason, New York inexplicably cut one of their best defensive players, CB James Bradberry. Right before training camp got underway, Howie Roseman swooped in to snag the Pro Bowl corner, signing him to a one-year deal.
Bradberry has been nothing short of excellent during his first season in Philly. He’s earned a 73.4 defensive grade from Pro Football Focus, good for 22nd among 120 qualifying corners. His 79.3 coverage grade ranks 10th among corners. Bradberry has been targeted 82 times this year and has surrendered just 37 receptions (45.1 completion percentage) for 391 yards and two touchdowns. Not to mention, he’s allowed a passer rating of 52.4 when targeted while snagging three interceptions.
He’s been an absolute steal for Jonathan Gannon’s defense.
Following the team’s Week 18 victory over Bradberry’s former team, Darius Slay took to Twitter to troll one of the Eagles most hated rivals.
Darius Slay just loves trolling New York
After the two teams met in Week 14, Slay took some shots at the Giants front office for missing out on WR DeVonta Smith during the 2021 NFL Draft. In that contest, Smith racked up five receptions for 64 yards, including this spectacular touchdown grab on fourth down.
The Eagles really have a knack for getting under the Giants skin. Glad to see Darius Slay is playing an active role in that.
