Default Is Bradford Gone? update: Bradford signs with Lions

New York Giants wish list:

WR Corey Bradford. The Giants made a run at him last year, but didn't land him. With Tim Carter set to leave via free agency and Jamaar Taylor's health always in question, the Giants need a new burner for their third receiver. Bradford could be that guy.

Ben Maller Rumor Page

Would make a few posters around here happy...

Yeah, the Giants must have really 'made a run at him' last year since the Texans signed him to a deal barely over the minimum (800k) a few days after Bradford visited NY.

I would not be against having bradford on the roster next season. not in the least.

There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with Bradford.. seriously..think back on all the games we have played with Bradford.. is there really any reason to hate him?

The problem isnt Bradford..its the way our old coaches used him.. he shouldnt be the #2 receiver. He is a #3 or #4.. someone you bring out to throw a hail mary to.

Hes "fairly" cheap.. and I think our new staff would use him correctly.

I'd be ELATED to see this guy sign ..... SOMEWHERE ELSE !



At one time I was a Bradford backer .... back when this board was at the old site ..... Since that time Ive come to my senses and realized Bradford is a track guy trying to make it as a football player ..... and doing a very poor impersonation at that.

As for the Giants making a run at him last year .... Why didnt they offer him a contract ??!!?? .....

I like Bradford ...He has made some great memorable clutch catches in the Texans uniform ...I think he's been our best receiver since the inaugural season. I have no idea of what the WR stats are ...but I'd like to see how he ranks in All-Time Texans History. Pretty darn good I suppose (Yeah I know he's been here tha whole time but u get my point)

Bradford last season.

16 games, 34 receptions, 436 yards, 12.8 average, 5 TDs


Brandon Stokely last season

15 games, 41 receptions, 543 yards, 13.2 average, 1 TD


How about Matt Jones, the rookie WR in Jacksonville.

16 games, 36 receptions, 432 yards, 12 average, 5 TDs


Nate Burleson

12 games, 30 receptions, 328 yards, 10.9 average, 1 TD


Mark Clayton

14 games, 44 receptions, 471 yards, 10.7 average, 2 TDs

Antwan Randel El

16 games, 35 receptions, 558 yards, 15.9 average, 1 TD




This is the class that Bradford is in. He is a good backup WR.. he shouldnt be key to the offense..he should just be there for when we CAN use his speed and experience.

Bradford caught 52% of his passes last season.

that puts his catch percentage close to players like Ashlie Lelie, Jerry Porter, Justin McCareins, Plaxico Burress, Drew Bennett, Isaac Bruce, Antwan Randel El, Andre Johnson, and Roy Williams.


so.. again.. he doesnt have the hands of a superstar.. but he does have the hands of an average player. His infamous "hands of stone" was the reputation he came to us with from Green Bay... for the most part, with us, he has been AVERAGE when it comes to hauling in passes.. not BELOW average.

But whatever.. some fans just have to have someone that they can dog on. Ignorance is bliss and whatnot.

I do not see the value in keeping the guy. He has averaged over his 8 year career less than 2 catches and 30 yards per game. He does have a nice yards per catch percentage at 15.8.

I think we pretty know what we are going to get and in my opinion it is not worth what we should be paying for him at league minimum.

Out of all the guys you mentioned, how many of those would hit the FA market, get basically no offers, and have to come crawling back to their original team for a near min contract?
