Report: Jets not interested in Ahmad Bradshaw

During an interview Tuesday morning, running back Ahmad Bradshaw said that he’d be interested in jumping to the other team that calls MetLife Stadium home after his release from the Giants.

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, that’s not happening. Mehta reports that the Jets’ reaction to word of Bradshaw’s thoughts about staying in the same zip code  can be characterized as “thanks, but no thanks.”

Bradshaw’s probably going to get a lot of that right now. He just had surgery on his right foot to replace a screw from a previous surgery with a bigger one in hopes of repairing an issue that he tried to correct with stem cell treatments before the 2012 season. Bradshaw’s probably going to need to show he’s fit before getting a contract with anybody else and that’s not expected to happen for another couple of months.

Assuming they don’t re-sign Shonn Greene, the Jets will likely be in the market for a running back to go with Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight. Bradshaw’s health makes him a risky choice since neither of the other two options have ever been the top dog in an NFL backfield before and the Jets need to be more effective running the ball regardless of who winds up as their quarterback in September.

Bradshaw’s done the lead job before, but the physical toll it has taken on him may leave him best suited to a different role in his next home.

    Unless someone’s really in need of a veteran back, look for Bradshaw to wait for the Giants to finish their deals and give them a hometown discount to re-sign.

    Bucs make a lot of sense. Him and the Dougernaut would be a pretty good combo.

    Bc they have so many good RBs already on the team. Maybe they should get him to play QB.

    If this guy slapped fire from the back of Victor Cruz’s helmet for missing a block, and then cursed out Tom Coughlin, can you imagine what he’d do to Sanchez and Rex? Smart move Jets to aviod this guy. He and Santonio would be in a full blown fist fight before the 3rd OTA day.

    A hometown discount? If the Giants are the only interested team, I’m pretty sure he’ll be accepting the vet minimum or watching from home.

    What do the Jets need with a 2x SB Champ?

    The Jets signing Bradshaw is what we would call a “good move.” The Jets dont make good moves, I thought this was common sense by now?

    As a Giants fan I would love to see him come back at a reduced salary but it is a business and he will have to do what is best for him.

    I could see him landing in Carolina. I don’t see the Panthers bringing back both Foster and Williams. Plus a switch to playing on natural grass my be good for his feet. Charlotte is not far from his home town of Bluefield, VA.

    Hopefully my Chargers pick him up, that way when Ryan Matthews goes down with another injury, he can fill in for the rest of the year.

    I think San Fran can use him for a change up. So can Colts.

    Didn’t I hear somewhere that Tim Tebow is a good runner? Maybe the Jets should trade for him.

    2x champ doesn’t fit with jets.

  15. briscocountyjr says: Feb 12, 2013 5:49 PM

    Every team is taking notice!!! When the jets don’t want to take someone that means he has good value…

    Next up, the jets will trade their 2nd and 3rd for Kolb.
