Ed Bouchette's post on Pittsburgh Steelers | Latest updates on Sulia
Here's why the #Steelers let free agent #Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw leave on Thursday without a contract:
Bradshaw is still lame. He supposedly got rid of his walking boot, but he wore one on his right ankle from the surgery. He's similar in style to Isaac Redman, although a step faster -- when he's healthy of course. Plus, Bradshaw has no other real options right now.
Thursday, was more a get-to-know-you session, plus a physical. Mike Tomlin no doubt told Bradshaw what plans they would have for him if they could come together on a contract ultimately. But he will have to prove his foot is healthy before the cap-strapped Steelers can commit to him. The Steelers do not need running backs with injuries, not matter their resume. However, they can add a veteran now and one in the draft, as long as one or the other has the potential to be their top dog.
