New York Giants trade CB Isaac Yiadom to the Packers

New York Giants, Isaac Yiadom

Prior to the start of the 2020 season, the New York Giants traded a seventh-round pick for Denver Broncos cornerback Isaac Yiadom. Drafted in 2018, Yiadom was a former third-round selection but fell out of favor with Denver and eventually made his way to New York.

After adding Adoree’ Jackson in free agency on a big contract, the Giants didn’t feel it necessary to have Isaac as a depth piece. After drafting Aaron Robinson and Rodarius Williams this off-season, Big Blue decided to trade Yiadom to the Green Bay Packers, according to Matt Lombardo of Fansided.

Last season, Yiadom played in 634 total snaps, recording of 52.1 overall coverage grade, according to PFF. Yiadom enjoyed his best game of the season against the Arizona Cardinals, recording at 77.2 overall grade, including three tackles, and giving up just one catch for 8 yards. However, he was rather inconsistent and adding Jackson to solve the CB2 spot made him expendable.

The Giants will likely add a draft pick in return or a roster bubble offensive lineman who could be a scheme fit. At the end of the day, the Giants just have too many secondary pieces, and instead of cutting him straight up, they added capital instead.
