The Indianapolis Colts have made a ton of upgrades to their roster during the offseason period. They brought in 10 free agents in the first week, then added some new guys to fill much-needed positional holes during the NFL Draft.
After all of that, the Colts still had some money left over to sign some more players.
On Thursday morning, team officials confirmed former New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is in town visiting with the team today, and could sign shortly.
The signing would give the Colts a big upgrade with their running backs unit, as they would getting a proven veteran that has won Super Bowl titles with the Giants. Also, joining the Colts would give Bradshaw a good chance at getting to the big game again, as the Colts are one of the best teams now in the NFL and have the youth to be a dominant franchise for the remaining duration of Bradshaw’s career.
Bradshaw is a former seventh-round draft choice by the Giants in 2007 and has a career 4,232 rushing yards with 32 touchdowns. He was part of a very dominant backfield in New York, with him and Brandon Jacobs leading the charge in two Super Bowl seasons.
Bringing Bradshaw in to Indianapolis would make him and Vick Ballard a very dynamic backfield duo with a big bruiser in Delone Carter backing the pair up. That could mean former first-round choice Donald Brown could be on the outs in Indianapolis, as they certainly won’t need four running backs on the active roster.
