It looks like one and done for Bradshaw in Indy

Multiple sources are reporting that former Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw’s tenure with the Colts is over after just one season.

From Rotoworld: Indy Star beat writer Stephen Holder believes Bradshaw was the Colts’ best back when healthy in 2013, but Bradshaw’s lack of durability has made him a poor investment for NFL clubs. “If he does return, it will be an attempt to add depth, at most,” writes Holder. Bradshaw turns 28 in March. He’s missed 19 games over the past three seasons and underwent neck surgery in October.

I know what you’re thinking… and no, I don’t see him coming back to the Giants. As stated above, Bradshaw’s days as a mail carrier are over. He’s a complementary player — at best — at this point, but mainly he’s a risk, especially to the Giants who need to get it right this offseason.

It’s a shame, because Bradshaw had been one of the league’s best big-game backs in recent years. If he does not find a home by summer, the Giants may take his temperature for old time’s sake, but this could conceivably be the end of the line for this warrior.

“He is not only an exceptional football player, but he is the epitome of line up and play,” Tom Coughlin said last February after the Giants parted ways with Bradshaw. “Regardless of the circumstances, he’s going to give you everything he’s got. If you give the ball to him, he’s going to get every inch of what is there – and sometimes when it’s not blocked, he still gets it.”

"his age in football years is probably 85"

It's amazing to think that Bradshaw is only 28 years old. With the pounding his body has taken running as hard as he does, his age in football years is probably 35. He was a great Giant and a big part of two Super Bowl winning teams, but there is no way you take a chance on him anymore. You just can't keep him on the field. I'll remember his contributions fondly, he left it all on the field.
