Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw will be a free agent when the lockout ends. And while it seems that the lockout may never end, Bradshaw is thinking ahead by making a change in agents.
Previously represented by Craig Domann, Bradshaw has hired Drew Rosenhaus.
Bradshaw, a seventh-round draft pick in 2007, emerged as part of the “Earth, Wind & Fire” trio headlined by Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward. In 2008, Jacobs and Ward each rushed for more than 1,000 yards.
In 2009, Ward left as a free agent and Bradshaw became the alternative to Jacobs. In 2010, Bradshaw became the top dog, starting 11 games and rushing for 1,235 yards. Jacobs gained only 823 yards.
Bradshaw, who has four years of service, may or may not be an unrestricted free agent when 2011 begins — if it ever begins. The Giants have extended to Bradshaw a first-rounder RFA tender, but the next set of rules may permit players with four years of service to become unrestricted free agents.
