NFL Rumors: San Diego Chargers Should Sign RB Ahmad Bradshaw
There is no question that with new management in place, very few jobs on the San Diego Chargers current roster are safe. Perhaps the least secure of any positions heading into the offseason is the starting running back spot manned by former first round pick Ryan Mathews and a host of other relatively underwhelming players. Now that the New York Giants have released running back Ahmad Bradshaw, the Bolts should seriously consider making a run at the beleaguered 1,000-yard rusher.
While it may seem counter-productive to add yet another injury-prone guy back into the mix for the Bolts, Bradshaw may come at a bit of a discount considering his recent foot issues. Of course having him check out medically would be priority number one for the team, but if he is deemed to be alright physically by team doctors, why wouldn’t he fit right in with the Chargers?
New head coach Mike McCoy is expected to utilize a run-heavy offense and with the new zone-blocking scheme coming to San Diego, Bradshaw could be quite productive. He will be just 27 years of age when the 2013 season begins and still has plenty of tread left on his tires with less than 1,000 career NFL rushing attempts.
What might be most appealing about Bradshaw is his ability to pick up the tough yards between the tackles when necessary. He is by no means intimidating in stature at just 5’10” 216lbs., but the physical nature with which he runs is impressive. Adding Bradshaw would be quite complementary for Mathews who is much more of an edge rusher by trade. Neither Ronnie Brown nor Le’Ron McClain really added that element to the Bolts in 2012 and it is time to bring in a back that can pick up first downs on third and short.
Someone is going to be brought in this offseason to compete with Mathews for the starting running back spot whether it is via the draft or in free agency. That someone might as well be Ahmad Bradshaw. Even though the two of them have injury-prone pasts, the chances of them both being out of commission at the same time is slim (just trying to be an optimistic pessimist).
