Running back Ahmad Bradshaw has generated some interest around the league since his release from the Giants, but he said Wednesday that he's not yet ready to go meet with any of those teams.
The reason for his hesisitation is his surgically repaired foot. Bradshaw is no longer wearing a protective boot on his right foot, which has been broken twice and which required Bradshaw to have screws replaced after the end of the season, but said that he wants to do a little more rehab before he shows off for teams that might want to add him to their backfield mix.
"I've decided not to work out with teams yet," Bradshaw said in an interview with ESPN Radio in New York, via the Newark Star-Ledger. "I want to be as healthy as I can be, I want to be explosive, and I want teams to see what they are able to get. Right now, I'm working on that, and I think it's coming along faster and faster. I'm walking around without the boot."
Bradshaw mentioned the Jets, Steelers and Packers as teams that have expressed interest in his services, which meshes with earlier reports about who was sniffing around the longtime Giant back. All would make sense as landing spots for a player who is likely headed to a lesser role than he played in New Jersey over the last few seasons.
