New England Patriots Looking Into Former Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw

Ahmad Bradshaw’s market in free agency has really begun to pick up in the last week.

As we at Giants 101 have reported on Monday, the Indianapolis Colts are “heavily negotiating” to try and sign the former New York Giants running back; talks that started on Thursday.

Now, as Mike Florio from NBC’s Pro Football Talk is reporting, there’s another AFC playoff team looking at Bradshaw as well, one who knows him quite well, as the New England Patriots could be getting into the mix for him.

“Colts, RB Ahmad Bradshaw still talking . . . Patriots possibly could get involved.  Stay tuned,” he tweeted.

This news comes after the Patriots made headlines all over the NFL on Monday when they signed former Denver Broncos and New York Jets Tim Tebow, who some NFL experts feel as if Tebow could be used as an H-Back in the team’s offense.

Right now, the Patriots have Stevan Ridley, Leon Washington, LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen on their roster, and with Tebow, he could be adeed into their running game as well.

But adding in a veteran like Bradshaw would make sense for a team like the Patriots, who tend to add veterans and make them fit into their team philosophy. If Bradshaw were to sign, he would be the second player from the Super Bowl XLVI team to head over to New England; former Giants tight end Jake Ballard was claimed off waivers last summer by New England and is expected to be the team’s third tight end in 2013.

Bradshaw also was the one who scored the game-winning six-yard touchdown in that same Super Bowl against New England; which was the second time in five years that the Giants beat the Patriots.

Bradshaw is coming off a season where he rushed for 1,015 yards and six touchdowns in 2012, but was released when he was slated to make $3.75 million and was always battling injuries on the Giants.
