It seems like the plan for the Giants is to retain Bradshaw, one way or another.
Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com writes that the “Giants are expected to re-sign Bradshaw.” The team likely values him more than any other team will, and should be able to get a deal done.
It’s also possible that Bradshaw, a fourth-year player, could be a restricted free agent if the league returns to play under last year’s rules. Bradshaw wouldn’t hold it against the Giants if they just offered him a one-year tender.
“I wouldn’t be frustrated,” Bradshaw told the Newark Star-Ledger this week. “It’s whatever they give me. It’s a business.”
Bradshaw is one of the most underrated backs in the league, but perhaps not the type of guy to attract a huge bidding war on the open market. It sounds like there will be enough mutual interest between him and the Giants to keep him in New York.
