The former Carolina Panthers cornerback agreed to a three-year, $45 million contract with $32 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

What it means: The Giants have the veteran cornerback they so desperately needed. They didn't have a cornerback under contract over the age of 24 who played significant snaps for them last season. Bradberry, 26, has a track record of success after holding his own in man coverage against some of the league’s top receivers this past season. He immediately becomes the Giants’ No. 1 cornerback and adds a veteran voice to the room. A lot is going to be asked of him as one of the league's highest-paid cornerbacks.

What's the risk: Not much. Bradberry has started 60 games and missed just one over the past three seasons. He's known as a bit of a gambler, and maybe there is a transition switching to a team that will predominately be in man coverage after he played more in zone than man in Carolina. The Giants had to pay up for Bradberry, and part of what they paid for is minimal risk. This is a strong move for a team that needed cornerback help in the worst way.
