Following a tumultuous 2012 season, the New York Giants have released RB Ahmad Bradshaw.
The sixth year veteran out of Marshall will have a solid amount of interest engulfing him. He is a workhorse back, but his future with the G-Men was in doubt.
Teams that would benefit from acquiring Bradshaw include the Detroit Lions, New York Jets, and St. Louis Rams.
Lions RB Jahvid Best likely won’t play another snap of football due to his unfortunate concussions, and fellow RB Mikel Leshoure could use some help in the backfield.
The Jets have possessed lackluster offensive play in general, and need stability. Having a consistent running back would help the offense immensely.
Rams RB Steven Jackson may be headed elsewhere, whether it be hanging up his cleats or donning a different uniform on Sundays. Bradshaw plays with a similar style compared to Jackson, and it would be a smooth transition from running back to running back for St. Louis.
2012 Second Round Pick RB David Wilson emerged as a playmaker late in the season, and showed glimpses of promise. Wilson is undoubtedly the future feature tailback of the offense.
The Giants also have cut DL Chris Canty and LB Michael Boley.
