Ahmad Bradshaw would like to play for Dolphins

AP

You know the start of the league year must be close when agents start trying to drum up business again.

Drew Rosenhaus joined 7SportsXtra in Miami Sunday night, and pitched one of his clients to the Dolphins.   Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post passes along word Bradshaw is training in Miami and is interested in playing for the Dolphins.

It’s actually a great fit. The Dolphins are looking for a speedier back than can play on passing downs to pair with Daniel Thomas.  Reggie Bush has received plenty of speculation, but Bradshaw is a far more complete back.

Bradshaw had a far better season in 2010 than Bush has ever had in his career. If Miami chooses to give big money to a guy like Bush instead of seeking under-the-radar productivity like Bradshaw, we’ll know their front office has priorities out of whack.

And yes, Bush wants big money.

  1. This is not what I want to hear, AB. You’re staying in New York for 5 more years, at least…

  2. As a Dolphins fan I’d much rather have Bradshaw than Bush. Though I think he’s less of a natural threat on the pass catching side that Bush, he’s simply more capable on an all around basis.

  3. Only the Dolphins could handle this so poorly. The Dolphins do not NEED a rb. They have Brown, a top 15 talent at rb in the league. and Williams who is a steady backup. Last year when the Phins were on primetime TV. Brown had the first carry of the game. He got 6 yards. He got 5 more carrys the rest of the night after it was a blowout because their BLIND coach is an idiot. They need a new coach, possibly a new qb, some defensive backs, and a compliment to Brandon Marshal. They do not need a rb. Only the dolphins.

  4. Bradshaw has more Pins in his ankles than a pin cushion. That being said, I’d rather have Bradshaw over Bush!

  5. Rosenhaus just drumming up garbage to drive the price up. He’s a good back, but has had a history of injuries, and has had a complement his entire time.
    Oh yeah he’s also only had one QB to deal with his entire tenure in the NFL. He goes to Miami with who as his QB?
    Let’s face it, he wants another ring, and would he have a better chance in NY or Miami? In Miami he’d have to face the Jets and Pats, which is very hard to do year in and year out. At least in the NFC East he has a way better shot of his team making the playoffs.

    And both teams have some line issues.

  6. How did you get through writing this article without saying, “He wants to take his talents to South Beach”?!

  7. LOL.. Nice try Mr Agent… As if anyone believes he would want to leave a Super Bowl contender with a solid QB to go play for a team who hasn’t made a splash in the playoffs since Marino, with no QB and the Jets old ball boy as their OC.

    You would have been better off pretending he wanted to play for Tampa with Josh Freeman!!!

    ============================

    You’re joking, right? Ahmad Bradshaw will make his decision based upon the same thing every free agent bases his decision on:

    Straight cash homie.

  9. A SB contender that has missed the playoffs 2 years in a row? lol

    I guess the Giants want him back on the off chance that Eli quits throwing INTs and they need someone else willing to turn the ball over on the regular.

  10. I’m a Cowboys fan so I believe the Fins should go after Bshaw. The Gmen have a good 1 2 punch in Bshaw and Jacobs. I would thoroughly enjoy him leaving.

  11. *Insert Free Agent Name Here* is interested in playing for *Insert Any Team Name Here*.

    It’s all about the money.

  12. Miami wants a scatback, not someone to carry the load… hence the bush connections. Brian daboll already has his new wrecking ball like he did with Hillis.

  13. @ typhilly21:

    God, I love Philly fans. You guys have won NOTHING and still talk with the big boys. Dallas with 5, Giants with 3, and even those Redskins dominated for a while there with 3, as well. Then you have the lowly Eagles: 0. Not even 1 Super Bowl, really? Man… what a disgrace to the NFC East that team is.

    For the record, you’ve won .5 more games than us in the past 5-6 years, if I remember correctly. We’ve won arguably the best Super Bowl since then… what have you guys done? Congrats on your regular season wins.

  14. you do need a running back dolphins Fans, i know you got the rookie but you never know how well he will stack up against pro talent..ronnie brown is no longer a top 15 back, and ricky doing what hes does at his age is commendable but he cant be depended on, bradshaw is quite good when healthy and would immediate be an upgrade..this guy along with thomas could be a great tandem for a number of years..finesse and power , they could also help take pressure off of henne, open up the passing game etc..i.e. what charles and jones do for cassel and kansas city

  15. and i think reggie bush to miami would be bad for miami, bush can benefit a team that doesnt need to use him as the only offensive option –

    the saints had other ways to go when bush was hurt or playing subpar, the dolphins dont have that option

    First of all, I don’t know why you felt the need to start ranting about the Eagles in the comments section of a story that involves a Giants player being linked to a possible move to the Dolphins. But, if you feel the need to talk trash, how about a 6 game winning streak and my Eagles preventing your Giants from making a run for back to back SBs and then keeping them out of the playoffs since then? Any Lombardi trophies in the case? No, but the great thing about football is that having won a championship in the past does nothing for you now. The day a Lombardi trophy keeps Eli from screwing up and not sliding feet first to avoid fumbling the ball, then those comments might mean something to me. Besides, it’s not like we don’t have any championship trophies sitting around and gathering dust. It’s just that we haven’t won one since the SB era. lol

  17. Bradshaw is definetly the better option for the dolphins simply because if their offense. He can carry the load as well as be productive in the wildcat. He a small but tough physical runner who to me can be as productive as a ray rice if hes given the chance.

  18. last thing I ever want is a rb that fumbles all the time, from a guy that throws INT’s all the time. But… I’d rather win a ballgame, Bradshaw could win us a few.

  19. “A SB contender that has missed the playoffs 2 years in a row? lol”

    Compared to what… a team that has how many playoff wins in the past 35 years including time with one of the greatest Qb’s of all time.

    Giants are a solid team and solid organization that had someinjuries last year- the Dolphins have been a joke for my lifetime.

  20. First off, Ahmad Bradshaw had a better season last year than Reggie Bush has ever had? Oh really? Hmmmm…… let’s look at Reggie Bush’s best season, which was his rookie season.

    Reggie had 1,307 yards from scrimmage with 8 touchdowns and just 2 fumbles.

    Ahmad had 1,549 yards from scrimmage with 8 touchdowns and 6 fumbles lost.

    Ahmad had more yards but also a significant number of fumbles.

    But I guess my real question is why would Ahmad want to leave a team with a winning record to join a team like the Dolphins?

  21. As a long-time Phin fan, I don’t want Bradshaw. He’s too fumble prone. I don’t care if he can get a 99 yard carry in one play. If he fumbles the next play on the goal line, it’s all for nothing. Same reason I don’t like Ricky Williams, he fumbles at the most inopportune times. Re-sign Ronnie Brown and the Phins will be fine with Thomas, Brown and Hilliard. Darren Sproles would be a better option than Bradshaw…he can return kicks. Bush is too expensive.

  22. Wow, are we missing the point here? lol… SO Giants fans are bashing the Dolphins ( and the Eagles?!) Dolphins fans are bashing the Giants fans for bashing the Dolphins, and Everyone is bashing Reggie Bush…rightfully so. Wasn’t the point that Bradshaw is interested in LEAVING the Giants to play for the Dolphins? The Dolphins aren’t STEALING him. The real question is, where will he make his money? Where will he play more snaps? Where will he get more carries? Lets not forget he was benched last year for Brandon “tip-toe” Jacobs. Fumbles were a main cause but the man was a workhorse. I didn’t see Eli benched for his league leading INTs, did you? Its all irrelevant anyway because its based on the fact that someone else said he is interested. I’ll believe it when I see Ahmad Bradshaw say I want to be a Dolphin.

  23. the thing about bush is some team is still going to want him and be willing to pay big money for him, not because he is great, but because there are still a lot of stupid fans out there that love reggie and will buy his jersey. he is worth the 11 million in jersey sales alone. pretty pathetic but probably true.

  24. Bush is a slot receiver IMHO… not a RB, and with Devone Bess already on roster – he shouldn’t even garner any attention in Miami.

    I think the Dolphins will want either Bradshaw or Deangelo Williams… and will make a big push for one of them. Unfortunately – with he new salary cap rules (especially the much higher salary cap floor) LOTS of teams will be spending big this summer… and even with 20 to 25 million to spend – they might not have a shot at either guy.

    Sproles in SD, might be another backup option… but after that, I have to think Ronnie Brown might get some consideration to get resigned.

    Unless Ireland thinks there’s a shot of prying Palmer out of Mike Browns fist in Cincinnatti… I think you can count on the Dolphins trying to spend big for a RB whose considered a home run threat though.

  25. Soon we’ll be seeing a press conference with the Boys and Girls Club in the background when Bradshaw announces his Decision. Oh wait, he has too much class.

  26. He’ll be here. Rosenhaus’ tactics for both him and 17 are gonna fall flat. Hopefully we will have both of them.

  27. He’ll be here. Rosenhaus’ tactics for both him and 17 are gonna fall flat. Hopefully we will have both of them.

    The only guy I am truly concerned about leaving is Cofield.

  28. Let him go then Pick up Steve Slaton, and maybe he’ll listen like Tiki did on how to carry the football.
