Bradshaw is a good runner with a few good years left, but he does have injury issues. He is not, however, the type of runner who can turn a franchise's fortunes around. I expect that somebody will sign him in the not too distant future, but it would be foolish to engage in a bidding war for his services as he is getting older and showing signs of wear and tear. He might be more effective sharing the load than as a feature back.

Iredoosh will sign a LT from the Cowboys bench instead.

Bradshaw is the consumate hard working blue collar type of running back. Unfortunately, this has taken a toll on his body which is why he might be better off sharing the running back duties rather than being the featured back on most downs.

We can sign ahmad bradshaw And still keep Reggie bush .But we have to cut either Daniel Thomas And another running back.Bradshaw can be a good addition to the running game ,but not a full time solution.We have to keep Reggie Bush for another year.

I am inclined to agree. Bradshaw will likely get offers from other teams as well so he likely will not come cheap.

Bradshaw is not the kind of player he used to be three years ago due to injury.All he can be is a backup.Any team that pay him huge money will regret it later.So why you think the Giants let him go so early.

The Giants let him go primarily for salary cap reasons. His health issues were secondary. He still had a very good rushing average last year and can still carry the mail. He just cannot keep taking the beating his body endures on an every down basis due to his kamikaze-like approach to playing the running back position. As a back who shares the duties, he could play like a starter when he gets the chance. Bradshaw and Bush would give Miami a very potent twosome and by giving each other a much needed breather when necessary, it could keep both of them fresher for the whole game and make each one all the more effective. Of course, any team that signs him should give him a thorough physical.

It might be nored that the Gianrs have both the youngster Wilson and Andre Brown who had a very commendable 5.3 yards per carry average last year. Wilson also averaged over 5 yards a carry. The Giants feel theyy can count on those two to fill the void with Wilson, a more explosive big play type of runner and Brown, more of a power runner.

In spite of injuries, he still managed another 1000 yard season with a very respectable 4.6 yards per carry average. He is also a good blocker against the blitz. I am sorry the Giants had to let him go because of the salary cap issues. I am sure they would have kept him if they weren't so far over the cap for 2013.
