Ahmad Bradshaw is still interested in continuing his NFL career in New York — and it doesn’t necessarily have to be with the Giants.
The former Giant running back said the Jets are one of the teams he’s “excited” to consider, now that he’s a free agent after being cut by his old team last Wednesday. He won’t rule out a return to the Giants once his surgically repaired right foot feels better. But playing for the Jets clearly interests him, too.
“The New York Jets are a team that I’m excited to hear about, just to stay home, not make a big move from New York,” Bradshaw said Tuesday morning on the NFL Network’s NFL AM show. “It’s just right across the street from where I am now.”
Bradshaw rushed for 1,014 yards in 14 games with the Giants this past season, making him slightly more productive than Jets running back Shonn Greene (1,063 yards in 16 games). Greene is 28 and coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, but he is an unrestricted free agent.
The problem for any team that signs Bradshaw is that he’s injury-prone and recently had another surgery to have a new screw implanted in his problematic right foot. Bradshaw said “I feel better already” after the surgery and he expects to be ready for the start of training camp. But his injury history, which includes injuries to both ankles, both feet, his neck and hand, make signing him a risk.
Before he was cut, Bradshaw said the Giants indicated it was possible they would re-sign him at a later date (and likely for a lesser salary). He reiterated that on NFL AM.
