Carolina Panthers James Bradberry rated top NFL corner for week 2

It seems Carolina Panthers number 24 is once again the highest rated corner in the league, only the name on the back of the jersey has changed. According to ProFootballFocus , Bradberry not only performed better than Josh Norman, but also better than every other corner in the league.

From the article:

James Bradberry, CB, Carolina Panthers (93.3)

Ironically, the only cornerback to outperform Josh Norman this week was the rookie tasked with filling his shoes for the Carolina Panthers. Going up against the 49ers receivers will help, but Bradberry allowed just one catch on seven targets, and it went for only six yards. He notched a pick and a pass defensed, and when targeted yielded a passer rating of 0.0.

Josh Norman, CB, Washington Redskins (91.9)

Norman was thrown at twice when covering Dez Bryant, and he broke both of them up. Washington finally started asking him to track Bryant to start the fourth quarter, and he didn’t allow a single target to Bryant when he was covering him from that.

Bradberry’s interception for the Carolina Panthers came in the 4th quarter and was celebrated by everyone including quarterback Cam Newton. As Bradberry laid on the field with the ball in his hand, Newton ran onto the field to help congratulate him.

If James Bradberry can continue this type of solid play, Panthers GM will look even more like a genius having saved the franchise 14 million in cap space this season by retracting Josh Norman’s franchise tag option.

    Wait what? I thought Bradberry was on Torrey Smith when Gabbert hit him for the TD.
