Should the Green Bay Packers Sign Ahmad Bradshaw?

(Brad Penner/USA Today Sports)

Despite having one of the top records in the NFC last season, it’s no secret the Green Bay Packers could use some help in the ground game for the 2012 season. After missing out on Steven Jackson to the Atlanta Falcons, there’s another running back the Packers should consider bringing on board for the 2013 season–Ahmad Bradshaw.

The running back is looking for a new home following his release from the New York Giants and for a team that ranked 20th in the league last year when it came to rushing yards per game–they could certainly use a running back like Bradshaw in the backfield. At first, it seemed like Green Bay was on the verge of signing Jackson, but those plans fell through when he joined Atlanta instead.

Now, the Packers need to act quickly if they really want Bradshaw before he gets taken off the market.

Bradshaw may have been released by the Giants, but he’s proven to be productive when healthy as he’s recorded at least 1,000 rushing yards in two of his last three seasons. Green Bay already has one of the league’s most high-powered offenses thanks to Aaron Rodgers, but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t use some extra help in the ground game.

It’s been a while since the Packers had a consistent running back in their starting lineup and there’s no question Bradshaw could make an impact if he did end up signing with the team–so it should be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of weeks.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
