Jayson Craig Bromley, Jr. (born May 28, 1992) is an American football defensive tackle for the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Giants in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He played college football at Syracuse.

Early years[edit]

Bromley was born on May 28, 1992 in Jamaica, New York. His mother was addicted to crack and he was himself born with an addiction. His father, a pimp, beat one of his prostitutes after tying her to a radiator. She died, he was convicted of homicide, and sentenced to prison when Jay was just nine months old. Custody of Jay went to his aunt and uncle when he was four months old.[1][2] He attended Flushing High School in Queens, New York, where he was named to the New York Post All-City First Team and was an all-borough selection following his senior season. He recorded 60 tackles and 12 sacks as a senior, while serving as team captain. He recorded over 40 sacks in his high school.

College career[edit]

He did not receive much recruiting attention, and only had a walk-on option at Stony Brook University. By June of his senior year, he was without any scholarship offers. However, after an invite to the Outback Steakhouse Empire Challenge, Bromley dominated the event, earning himself MVP honors. In the coming days, he received a scholarship from Syracuse University, which he accepted.[3] During his career at Syracuse, Bromley recorded 121 tackles, including 25.5 for loss, 14 sacks, and three forced fumbles. After leading his team in tackles for loss (14.5) and sacks (10), as a senior, he was named a third-team All-ACC selection.

Professional career[edit]

Bromley was drafted by the New York Giants in the third round (74th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.[4]
