Ahmad Bradshaw won’t be playing Sunday at MetLife Stadium but just standing on the opposite sideline from the Giants is going to be a jolt.

Bradshaw made that clear yesterday in a conference call with New York-area reporters describing his visit with his new team the Colts for a preseason matchup with his old team this weekend as “strange” and “different.”

“I’ve been with my Giants my whole career and I never thought about it on the other side” the veteran running back said. “So it’ll be different. But I understand it’s a business.”

Bradshaw was recently activated off Indianapolis’ physically unable to perform list but is still rehabbing his surgically repaired foot. He hasn’t even begun practicing with his new team yet so he won’t be in the lineup.

Even so Bradshaw — who won two Super Bowl rings in six seasons with Big Blue — said he’s eager to get back to what he calls “Giants Stadium.”

“It’s an exciting time” he said.

Bradshaw admitted that excitement is tempered by a bit of disappointment at how the Giants let him walk in free agency this past offseason — a decision he said he never saw coming even with the first-round selection of speedy back David Wilson in 2012.

“I never once felt [my Giants career] was coming to an end” Bradshaw said. “I was hoping it would work out but they drafted David Wilson in the first round. Even so with the discussions and dealings we were having I thought there was still a chance.”

Bradshaw said all of his new teammates with the Colts have been welcoming.
