Report: Former Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw visiting the Colts
With teams still reportedly concerned about his foot, former Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is visiting the Colts to try to find a job.
Yes, there are injury concerns -- he has had multiple surgeries on his right foot -- but still, you’d think somebody would have signed him by now, especially since there reportedly was interest in his services earlier this offseason.
True, the Colts already have second-year running back Vick Ballard, who was surprisingly good last season, but we could see Bradshaw taking over for the somewhat-ineffective Donald Brown as a second back and a solid pass protector. Of course, so much of Bradshaw’s future depends on how well his foot is feeling.
And as CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman has written, teams are still nervous about his injury history.
"You could get a Pro Bowler for the next two or three years," a Steelers team source told Freeman in March, "or a guy who is going to be hurt a lot. It's a risk. You just don't know."
Freeman predicted Bradshaw eventually would sign a deal, but he wouldn’t make as much money as he wants. We’ll see if he and the Colts can come to an agreement on that end.
