Former New York Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw Now Receiving Interest
It wasn’t clear as to what the future held for former New York Giants’ RB Ahmad Bradshaw. Sure, he was definitely going to be playing football in 2013. He’s been productive since entering the league as a seventh-round draft pick out of Marshall back in 2007. However, since Bradshaw was cut by the Giants in February, there haven’t been many reports of potential destinations for Bradshaw.
Not anymore! ESPN’s NFL contributor Adam Schefter tweeted the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers are interested in pursuing Bradshaw. Bradshaw has talked about re-signing with the Giants or joining the in-stadium rival New York Jets. It doesn’t appear the Giants or Jets are interested in bringing Bradshaw in, but there could be more teams interested in his services.
Bradshaw has been productive, but he hasn’t been able to stay healthy. He has dealt with constant foot and ankle issues, so he’ll most likely have to settle on a deal less than what he wants and be able to prove what he can do.
The Packers and Steelers are in need of a running back. For the Packers, they would like an experienced running back. RB Cedric Benson missed almost the entire season with a Lisfranc foot injury. The Packers were forced to bring back RB Ryan Grant, but they need a proven running back. Taking a chance on Bradshaw isn’t the best one because he’s also too injury prone.
The Steelers let RB Rashard Mendenhall go, so they’re in the market for a running back. RB Isaac Redman and RB Jonathan Dwyer are physical backs. However, they are not the type with break-away ability. Bradshaw isn’t fast, but he has the ability to get into open space. These might be the only two teams that will be interested in him. We’ll see if he ends up with one of them.
