Ahmad Bradshaw

We end the list with a name very familiar to the Giants and their fans in Bradshaw. A reunion between Bradshaw and the Giants seems like a longshot, but we have seen them go back to the well from their Super Bowl teams already in recent seasons, so why not do it one more time.

The Giants know what they will be getting out of Bradshaw, as he is a capable starter and one of the best in the business in the passing game. He can pass protect and is a threat as a receiver. The Giants know exactly what Bradshaw will bring into the fold on the field, as he would be as good a teacher as any to help Williams learn how to play in the passing game.

Unfortunately the same reason the Giants let Bradshaw go in the first place cut his tenure with the Indianapolis Colts, his most recent team, short as he was hit once again with the injury bug. In his first season with the Colts Bradshaw made it through only three games and in 2014 appeared in only 10 before a season ending injury.

So while Bradshaw will bring plenty of positives to the table, there are huge injury concerns he would bring along as well. Bradshaw will not be a primary target in the early going for the Giants, but if he finds a cold market like expected, the Giants could convince him to come back to where his career started on a team friendly ‘prove it’ type of deal to show that his career can get back on track.
