The New York Giants may make a decision soon on the fate of cornerback, James Bradberry.

The 28-year-old has not garnered interest and the Giants do not appear to be ready to keep him in the fold. No less than general manager Joe Schoen said that their plans for the Pro Bowler will likely end in a release soon.

“I thought there would be more interest,” Schoen was quoted as saying in a report from “There were some teams that showed interest pre-draft, and we had a couple different times compensation in place — and the contract never worked out. We did have good talks with other teams and [his] agent had good talks with teams. Sometimes if you are going to renegotiate a contract and you couldn’t come to an agreement, it is what it is.”

Hence, Schoen and the Giants are reportedly planning to release Bradberry, possibly by the end of the week. Bradberry may be picked up after that.

A reason seen as to why no NFL team has engaged in trade talks is his salary.

He is scheduled for a $21.8 million cap hit in the final year of his deal. A trade would save the Giants $12.1 million while cutting him would save $10.1 million, NBC Sports detailed.

Bradberry has 380 tackles, 15 interceptions and 82 pass breakups in 92 career games.

“It’s unfortunate because he’s a great kid,” Schoen said on “Carton & Roberts” on WFAN. “He’s a starting corner in the league. It’s just where we are financially: We still have to sign our draft picks, we still have to be able to sign our practice squad and then have replacement costs during the season.”

Bradberry has not participated in the Giants’ voluntary workout. However, he has been in touch with Schoen, the Post reported.
