Lots of teams that could maybe use another solid back: GB, ATL, PIT, ARZ, IND, NYJ, DET(?), STL(If SJax is gone).
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.
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.
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.
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.
So I take it Bradshaw was entering year 2 in 2013 then?? I think the play of Wilson and Brown definitely played a big part in Bradshaw being released, but I also figured Bradshaw's contract was a big part, ie he was going to make a lot more this year (assuming both years had somewhat close to an equal breakdown) than that.ETA: and while I do agree the injury risk does bring him into that ballpark, he's played at least 14 games 4 of the last 5 seasons. I dont recall when the foot injury occurred exactly, but I feel like it was before his 12 game 2011 season.

That's what he earned for 2011 and 2012. The Giants took a $2.5M cap hit on his signing bonus so they didn't have to pay him $3.75M for 2013.

So theyre only "saving" $1.25 mill, for this year at least? Sounds to me like the injury is worse than whats public right now sort of.

Bradshaw actually never ends up missing very many games over the course of the season, just sits out of practices. The foot issues are concerning though.

Not they're saving the $3.75 MM which was his non-guranteed salary. They cap hit is the pro-rated bonus. He would have cost over $5 MM against the cap if they kept him.
 
This was a cut that had to happen. At this stage he rarely practices and he is basically in the way of Wilson developing and giving the Giants a much more dangerous player on offense. Bradshaw had a great run with the Giants and he ran hard and worked hard but it was time for him to be let go. I would really be against them resigning him.

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.
Was thinking the same thing. Not that Wilson doesn't have talent, but I'd be worried about him getting in Coughlin's dog house. Andre Brown, when healthy, played well enough that Coughlin could afford to bench Wilson for fumbling or whatever else he might do. Plus, Wilson didn't do much more than show a few flashes this year. He saw very light duty. He and Brown had very similar stats (71 rushes @ 5.0 vs. 73 rushes @ 5.3).The risk:reward ratio will favor Brown next year if Wilson's ADP gets into the 2nd round. Wilson is relatively unproven and doesn't appear to have the confidence of his coach. That's a disaster waiting to happen, but I'm sure there are plenty of people who will claim he was a lock to be top 10 after the fact should the cards fall in place for such an event to occur. Typical SP hype. This could potentially rival the Jahvid Best hype of years past. But that bar was set pretty high. We shall see.Andre Brown does get hurt a lot, though. Seems like a great guy to stash as depth and just plug him in should Wilson get benched. Wouldn't be surprised if he was the goal line guy next year, either.

I would say the fact that they just cut the guy in front of Wilson contradicts that viewpoint.

Good point. I think it's easy to focus on the cap numbers but that's $3.75M in real money that is freed up to pay someone else. For Bradshaw it's not that they think he's done, but they believe Wilson, Brown and whatever rookie RB they bring in came be just as effective at a lower cost.

I don't think it's a case where they think his skills are declining. I think it's because they don't believe that his body can hold up to the workload of anything more than a change a pace RB. Also with how poorly the Giants line is at run blocking, not having Bradshaw in practice may have been having an impact on the timing and getting the running game to click. Perhaps letting Bradshaw go, was to eliminate some of the uncertainty each week.
 
For the right price...he would make a heck of a 3rd down and goalline back.Now for that role I would like him for the Packers...just can't see his price being low enough.

Please, no. The Packers do not need Ahmad Bradshaw. The Pack needs to draft one of the many 22 year old 2nd-round-value running backs that are available, to get younger and more explosive at the position. The Pack needs a feature back who can pound the rock, not an aging veteran who can't even practice on a weekly basis.I'm under the belief that the Packers make a small move upwards in the second round to get the guy they want. I think they'll trade their 2nd and a later round pick to move into the high/middle 2nd and get a feature back like Gio or Stepfan.I don't think need meets value at the end of the 1st for a RB this year for the Pack ... I expect them to go with a lineman in the first round, either offensive or defensive, then fit themselves to where they like a RB.

One thing to think about is that blocking is a huge priority w/ Rodgers back there and Bradshaw's always been known as a good blocker.

Im not saying spend a ton...which is why this is not likely.But a 3rd down guy who can block, catch, and who has been good on the GL (which would limit what is done to his body) would be a nice thing to have on this offense.Id rather do that than trade up into the 2nd more to grab a back.
 
NY radio, they say that the Giants told Bradshaw that they could no longer pay him like a lead back when he'd only have a role as a 3rd RB. Bradshaw wants to test the market before discussing a lesser role with the Giants.

With that foot...how many teams are going to be willing to give him the money and trust him in a feature role.Better be someone with a solid enough young back that "just isn't ready yet" or a team blowing up their backfield and drafting an RB high and playing Bradshaw til the rookie takes over.

Bradshaw must be an optimist, been saying that he got the bigger screw put in and should have done that instead of the stem cell injections last year. I don't think screw size is the answer. Two years ago he had issues with splintering around some screws. It just seems to me that his foot bones are just brittle.

Based on the salary, I don't blame the Giants for cutting him but he still has a few very good years in that body. With medical advances, and his view that a cut was possible, it made a lot of sense to get that procedure done. He's always been a bit hesitant to get surgery but when it's time, it's time.I wouldn't be shocked at all to see him land in a good situation and be that lead back for a playoff team in 2013. His best skill is his pass protection and teams always find more playing time for the vet that can do that at a high level.

I disagree that Bradshaw has "a few good years left" in that body. As someone who watches the Giants, Bradshaw really lacked burst this year, even before getting hurt. He just cant hit the hole hard anymore and looked plain slow out there. Couple that with his injury concerns and the fact that he's a bit of a headcase, and i doubt he finds anything close to a lead back situation.

:goodposting: I don't see an aversion to surgery. He's had some kind of procedure done each offseason for the past 3-4 years. What I see is a condition that just can't seem to get fixed. I think the bones heal but are so brittle that he gets new fractures. His head and heart are there but the body just can't handle more than 3rd RB duties.

He "lacked burst" and still averaged 4.6 yds/carry and 10.7 yds/rec while totaling over 1,250 yards. He's still just 26 years old. I think you're burying him a bit prematurely. Not saying he's going to become the next AP or anything but he's one of the best 32 running backs out there. Addin his ability to pass protect and he'll get a nice role somewhere.

Just last year all that talk was about an injection. An injection. Not to devalue that too much but players get injections every weekend of the season. What he tried to avoid last year just had to get done. All these issues you mention stem from that initial inability to get it done correctly. Now the proper screw is in (the one that should have been in place the first time years ago) and it should make a difference in the foot's stability and his confidence in it.

:confused: Yes, players get injections for pain and swelling each week. The injection I am speaking of for Bradshaw was when they removed bone marrow from his hip, extracted stem cells from it and injected it into the troublesome bones in his foot. The purpose of that is so they would develop into osteoblasts that would begin to produce bone and strengthen the foot. Prince had the same procedure and his foot healed. Bradshaw continues to have issue with fracturing. In interviews they haven't gotten specific enough on if it is the fractures aren't healing or that he continues to get new fracturing to the same bone.

I have very little confidence that this larger screw will fix the issue.
