Should the NY Giants keep Jabrill Peppers?
The New York Giants have a lot of talent at the back end of their defense with safeties Logan Ryan, Jabrill Peppers, Xavier McKinney and Julian love. What’s unfortunate is that they can’t keep all of them.
Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports has listed off some trade candidates for this summer. One of them is Peppers.
He’s still a big name with a big role, but with 2022 free agency on the horizon, Peppers could be dangled for the chance to gain $6.8M in cap savings for a team with just $2.4M in current space. It’s not as if New York hasn’t invested in alternatives at the position, paying up to retain Logan Ryan, recently spending a high pick on Xavier McKinney and finding snaps for the versatile Julian Love.
It surprised some people that the Giants didn’t sign Peppers to an extension this offseason, but New York can’t afford to re-sign every player. They could be waiting to see how McKinney plays this season and if he plays as well as they expect then I could see them letting Peppers walk as a free agent after this season.
