Giants released RB Ahmad Bradshaw (1 Viewer)

feels like he'd be a good fit for GB, not a superstar but does alot well.Depends on how healthy his foot is, I know but I cant see bradshaws career being over

Guess I just don't see GB going that direction. Starks can't stay healthy, Benson got hurt this year, Alex Green tore his ACL in 2011....They need a RB that can stay healthy. Bradshaw is not that.
 
Lots of teams that could maybe use another solid back: GB, ATL, PIT, ARZ, IND, NYJ, DET(?), STL(If SJax is gone).

 
I'm all over Andre Brown in drafts going forward. Really didn't see this move coming.
Cheap and could pay off big.
:thumbup: All of the sharks will be scooping up Andre while the guppies trip over themselves to get Wilson.
Wilson should be the starter but could be a good time to sell. The Giants will be going with their depth for RT next season. Their LT & LG are FA, the LT is a decent starter but the LG is more solid depth than starting quality. The C & RG spots are signed but both underachieved last season. It's possible the Giants end up with 3 new starters on the O-line.

Can he be considered solid if his feet can't handle a heavy work load?
Had a pretty decent season this past year, despite missing time. I think teams would love to have him, but would obviously need some depth. If it comes out that his foot is really bad, then maybe he's done, but if he's okay he could be a great fit for a team who wants to use him as a big part of a timeshare.
 
As a Wilson owner, very pleased to hear the news, but also realistic enough to realize that Brown will have a meaningful role. Could be a thunder/lightning thing.

Just because he's been released doesn't mean he won't be re-signed. This may simply be a formality to get his contract off the books and restructure it.

Guppies, huh? This post will be fun to revisit.
Could also end up the sharks got Wilson in 2012 when he was on the waiver wire. He's got the talent.I'm more concerned about the Giants O-line.

Very possible, but depending on how personal he's taking it, he may very well test the market first.

Wilson being on a waiver wire discounts that league from being full of sharks.

If that was the case, they would have probably just restructured.Bradshaw will only be back if no one else will pay him more. This is clearly the Giants saying "go see what you are worth". Maybe they'll match it, maybe they won't. Hell, maybe he doesn't care to go back either way.

He's post doesn't mean that Wilson will bust or not have a great year. It means that he'll be going very, very high as he was already hyped. Brown might be better value ten rounds later.
 
Andre Brown makes Ryan Mathews and Darren McFadden look durable. I have been following that dude since his first season at NC State and I can pretty safely say that he will get injured every single season of his career. So if you're going to find a reason to be down on Wilson, I don't think Brown should be a big one.

 
Bradshaw on the radio said the team told him door is open for return and he would like to come back. He'll be ready by training camp.
This does seem the most likely scenario.I don't see any other team paying him much more than the league minimum, so he'll probably re-sign with the Giants for close to that at some point during the off-season. My guess is they wait to do so until after the draft. Bradshaw has no reason to re-sign with them until the summer since he can test the waters and see if some other team wants his services for near what he was getting paid prior to being released.
 
All the Wilson love is great, but i think Bradshaw still has something left in the tank. He's hands down the toughest guy on the team and a fantastic pass protector. I'm all for cutting his salary if possible bc there are some obvious risks, but I can't see him in another uniform.

So when you call someone a "guppy" for going (tripping over themselves) after a player, you don't mean that the player will bust or not have a great year?

He's a ww-priced player who could see 40-50% of the Giants rushing offense plus GL carries. I don't think anyone's saying to go out and buy him as anything more than a throw-in on a larger deal, maybe.

I didn't say it. I'm just saying not to assume it was just an insult. If Wilson ends up being worth a 3rd round pick, or has a good enough year to at least warrant the pick, that doesn't mean Brown can't possibly be better value as a flier later on.I understand that the term "guppy" got you riled up. Again, I didn't say it. I'm just trying to steer the conversation in a worthwhile direction rather than a pissing contest.
 
I think he could be a good fit in detroit. He probably fits that style offense better leshoure or bell.I believe leshoure will be given every opportunity to prove himself. So Bradshaw would not be expected to carry the load, he could take over the roll they hoped to give to Best. Good fit and should sign cheap enough to be good value. My :2cents:

I'm pretty sure Waldman's knock on Andre Brown is the dude can never stay healthy. Check out how often he has been on the injury report. You guys act like Andre has been the model of health in the NFL. He has not been that. :confused:
 
Miami was rumored to be interested when they chose Bush instead a couple of years ago. Different group there now, but I wonder if they'll kick the tires.

Yeah...you make a great point.Would be nice for the several games he is healthy and have us :wall: for all the times he is questionable.

I was actually thinking he's most likely to sign somewhere that the team told him he's their starter. Out of the above Id say Indy or NYJ would be the most likely landing spot, put GB or PIT would be up there if those teams dont bring back Benson and Mendenhall.I dont think he'll be back in NYG unless there is next to no interest across the NFL. Based on the comments I heard that he made, it came across as "thanks for the memories" to the Giants and their fans.

I don't see a team offering him the starting job. Even Michael Bush had to settle for a backup job last year and he didn't have Bradshaw's injury questions.

I'm hoping he ends up in SD and that between him and Mathews one can stay on the field.

IMO he also doesnt have Bradshaw's talent, but the injury concerns with Bradshaw are certainly something that will limit his salary. IIRC CHI also gave Bush a pretty nice contract and when they signed him Forte was still a FA.

Definitely a case of releasing someone a year too early rather than a year too late.1,100 touches wouldn't be a lot for most 27 year-old RBs, but the constant foot issues would scare me off from signing him. That will keep getting worse, not better.I still like him as a player. He's good in pass protection. Probably not cheap enough as a free agent to mitigate his injury risk.

This is a Bradshaw thread so I hate to sidetrack too much with the Wilson/Brown talk here, but by 'tripping over themselves' I simply meant overpaying for the guy after the hype inflates his value sky high. I actually own Wilson, so I'm hopeful he gets the starting gig (not a lock) and explodes, but I'm not quick to forget how affective Andre was.Anyway, for Bradshaw – I'm optimistic that he gets some relief from this latest operation where they gave him a larger screw in the foot. Will be following him closely this offseason for sure. Would love to see him in Atlanta to replace Turner.

He's better than Bush but the injuries balance that out. Bush got a deal that pays him $7.5M for the first two years. Bradshaw's deal paid him $9.5M for two years. I think he'll end up with a deal similar to Bush's when teams account for the injury risk.

I wouldn't be too optimistic. With the smaller screw he had issues with the bone splintering around the screw, then this year he had the stem cell treatment. I'm not buying that it "wore off" like Bradshaw says. Unless by that he means that the treatment fixed what was damaged, but didn't do anything to help with the new damage that occurred during the 2012 season.At the start of the 2012 season, I thought Bradshaw would be limited to about 15-20 touches. Instead they rode him into the ground. It seems like they wanted to really test the foot so they could make a decision on his future.
