Bradshaw prefers to stay in New York, but with who?
Former New York Giants’ running back Ahmad Bradshaw is eyeing a return to New York, whether that be with the Giants or the Jets.
Bradshaw was cut by the Giants last week, after two years of battling with injuries. With the New York outfit deeming his contract to be out of line with his production, they parted company.
However, following an interview with NFL AM on Tuesday, Bradshaw didn’t rule out the possibility of returning but stated his preference to remain in the Big Apple.
“In playing with the Giants, they had mentioned that there was a chance for me to come back. I’m always up for that. But whatever, whoever needs me, whoever can use me. Whoever I feel that I can get a better chance of playing and helping which team.
“The New York Jets are a team I’ve kinda been thinking about, just to stay home, not make a big move from New York. It’s just right across the street from where I am now.”
Bradshaw was instrumental in the Giants’ Super Bowl run in 2011, but struggled with injuries thereafter which ruined his hopes of extending his stay. Having been due to make €3.25 million in 2013, it was a price the Giants were unwilling to pay.
Re-joining the Giants remains an option, but much will depend on how much they are willing to offer, and conversely how much Bradshaw is willing to accept given his health issues. He could return at a lower cost, or may well find himself turning out for the Jets next season.
