Former Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw medically cleared

Former New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been medically cleared to resume football activities, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Bradshaw, 27, is recovering from a late January foot surgery to replace a screw in his right foot. He has been waiting to take physicals with teams, such as the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos, all of which have shown interested in the veteran back.

Dr. Robert Anderson cleared Bradshaw, who is expected to be available for any team’s OTAs.

Despite battling injuries last season, Bradshaw rushed for more than 1,000 yards and six touchdowns in 14 games with Big Blue. He was released by the team in early February.

Bradshaw previously stated he and the Giants would leave the door open for a return. Yesterday, we wrote that running backs coach Jerald Ingram said “it’s the young guys’ time to shine.”
