New York Giants: Jabrill Peppers named as surprise summer trade candidate

The cap situation for the New York Giants naturally isn’t as good as it was before this offseason. The Giants spent big to bring in new additions and retain important players from last year’s roster, in the hopes of turning things around and making the playoffs in 2021.

But could they improve their standing with the salary cap by making a trade this season that would offload a player with a large contract?

CBS Sports listed the Giants as one team that could make such a trade in an article predicting surprise players that could switch teams during training camp. Among the names listed was Jabrill Peppers, who looks to have plenty of security with the Giants right now. Despite being secure in his spot, though, the Giants have other high profile players at Peppers’ position and could do well to save money by moving on.

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.

To put it simply, the Giants are paying a lot for Peppers when they have others that can fill the role well. Logan Ryan is on a good sized deal of his own and looks like the leader at the safety position, and the Giants also still have Xavier McKinney to develop into a player on a similar caliber to Ryan or Peppers. When you add in Julian Love to the mix, the position looks quite crowded.

It would be understandable if the Giants did want to move on from Peppers and clear some cap space while getting back something in return in a trade.

There’s nothing wrong with Peppers’ play on the field, after all, even if it’s clear why the Giants might want to move on from a teambuilding perspective. Given that, it also wouldn’t be surprising if the Giants got a decent draft pick in return for sending him elsewhere.

Bruce Springsteen declines to have New Jersey Turnpike rest stop named after him

Bruce Springsteen decided against having a New Jersey rest stop named in his honor. 

Stars like Jon Bon Jovi, Whitney Houston, James Gandolfini and six other notable Jersey names will be honored by having rest stops along the New Jersey Turnpike named after them courtesy of the New Jersey Hall of Fame. However, Springsteen, who hails from the Garden State, will not be among the stars honored — and it’s not because he was overlooked. 

"Bruce Springsteen respectfully declined to have a service area named after him," a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Hall of Fame told "It should be noted, though, that Bruce has been very supportive of the New Jersey Hall of Fame over the years, and is very much a part of the fabric of the Hall."

Representatives for Springsteen, 71, did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

The Boss has a run-in with law enforcement in his home state earlier this year stemming from a November 2020 incident in which he pleaded guilty to consuming alcohol in a closed area after he was arrested at the Gateway National Recreation Area for DWI, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area. A ranger witnessed the singer take a shot of tequila with fans before getting on his motorcycle and starting the engine.


Statements of probable cause obtained by Fox News at the time show that Springsteen allegedly refused to take a preliminary breath test when first approached by a park ranger on site.

"Springsteen refused to take a preliminary breath test (PBT), despite signs of intoxication namely after testing his gaze and walk and turn tests," a park ranger named R. L. Hayes alleges in the document.


Springsteen was ordered to pay a $500 fine for consuming the shot. The government then proposed the dismissal of the additional two charges of operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and reckless driving which the judge approved. He also had to pay an additional $40 fee. 


However, his arrest led to the deletion of his recent Super Bowl LV ad from YouTube.
