When Ahamd Bradshaw was released by the Giants last week, the running back said that he’d be open to returning to the team if they decided to reverse course later in the offseason.
During an appearance on the NFL Network, Bradshaw reiterated that he’d be “up” for such a reunion, but also mentioned another team that’s on his radar as he tries to find work for the 2013 season. He didn’t have to look all that far away from his MetLife Stadium stomping grounds to find another possibility of interest.
“Whatever, whoever needs me, whoever can use me. Whoever I feel that I can get a better chance of playing and helping which team,” Bradshaw said. “The New York Jets are a team that I’ve kinda been thinking about, just to stay home, not make a big move from New York. It’s just right across the street from where I am now.”
The Jets could find themselves in the market for a running back. There’s not much talk about them bringing back Shonn Greene, who can become a free agent, and a Joe McKnight/Bilal Powell backfield isn’t one that’s going to help jolt the Jets offense to life. Bradshaw might be a fit, although the cap-challenged team might be able to find a cheaper option with less tread on the tires in the draft.
Bradshaw’s not likely to sign with anyone until he can prove he’s good to go after another foot surgery, so the market for his services probably won’t be coming into focus for a while.
