EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants continue to bring in candidates to fill jobs in their secondary.

According to media reports, the team today traded for cornerback Isaac Yiadom from the Denver Broncos, who received a seventh-round draft choice in the deal.

The trade cannot be finalized until Yiadom clears COVID-19 protocols and passes a physical.

If the deal is completed, Yiadom (pronounced YEAH-dum) will be the fourth defensive back acquired by the Giants in six days, joining Logan Ryan – who is also waiting to conclude his protocol and physical requirements - Brandon Williams and KeiVarae Russell.

Yiadom, 6-1 and 190 pounds, is beginning his third NFL season. A 2018 third-round draft choice (99th pick overall) from Boston College, he has played in 29 games with nine starts. His totals include 55 tackles (42 solo), one interception, seven passes defensed and seven special teams tackles.

In 2019, Yiadom played in all 16 games with eight starts. He was credited with 38 tackles (28 solo), four passes defensed and five special teams tackles. Yiadom had a season-high eight tackles, all unassisted, in the season opener at Oakland on Sept. 9.

He picked off a pass by the Chargers' Philip Rivers on Dec. 30, 2018 for his only interception, which he returned four yards.

At Boston College, Yiadom started 28 of the 48 games in which he played and totaled 110 tackles (75 solo), three interceptions (30 yds.), one forced fumble and 24 passes defensed.
