Ahmad Bradshaw says Steelers, Jets and Packers have shown interest

Ahmad Bradshaw, the top remaining free-agent running back, says he's drawn interest from the Steelers, Jets and Packers.

But he's not going to take visits and work out for teams until his twice-broken right foot is closer to 100 percent. He had a large screw inserted in the foot in late January, and has shed his walking boot.

“There are a lot of teams out there, but there are a couple teams that are interested, so I've heard," Bradshaw said on ESPN Radio's The Michael Kay Show. "Pittsburgh, the Jets and the Packers, which are teams that I feel like need a running back, that I could help. Like I said, it's a process. I just want to take it slow."

The Giants cut Bradshaw after six seasons that included two Super Bowl titles and two 1,000-yard seasons. They saved nearly $3 million in cap space.

"There's a lot of teams out there that need running backs," Bradshaw, 27, said on the radio show. "I want to go to a team (where) I can be the No. 1 back, get multiple carries every game. I just want to be able to help and be a big part of it."

Bradshaw did not rule out returning to the Giants, saying "there's always that chance."

In 13 games last season, Bradshaw ran for 1,015 yards and six touchdowns while averaging 4.6 yards per carry.

Coach Tom Coughlin said recently that David Wilson, Andre Brown and Da'Rel Scott will compete for the starting job this season.
