Well I keep up on alot over the entire NFL and I don't remember any team interested in Bradshaw, not even a hint. Does he think he's in a bidding war. Just sign for 1 year dude, prove you deserve more you might get one, his feet is the huge question. I would be shocked if they give him more than one year!!!!! Just another thought, I would be ok with a contract over one year IF it's incentive laden and a 1 year out clause.....

 

Go Colts!!!!!

was reading around some blogs today and it looks like he would NOT come here and be 2nd string or more like 2nd fiddle, of course there would be situations where he would be 2nd string usage per say but he doesn't want a back seat to anyone.

man, everyone is getting this guy mixed up with Brandon Jacobs, THIS IS NOT BRANDON JACOBS who terrorizes defenses, this is AHMAD Bradshaw who has more screws in his foot than a grand piano.

Bradshaw is better than Jacobs. And Jacobs hardly "terrorized defenses"

Bradshaw was always the better back of the two.

Trust me I heard it from my Giants buddy all the time.

Oh now I remember the steelers and packer were, but that was before the draft and I didn't see any reason at the time they would take the chance with his questionable feet, he would want to much money after cleared and they could get a RB later in the draft for pennies compared to Bradshaw, I should have said I don't remember any team interested in Bradshaw, not even a hint after the draft..... :)

You are making the false presumption that a significant portion of NFL athletes are making top tier marquee financial salaries. Okay yes, this topic is revolving around a SB winning RB which automatically bumps his salary up another income bracket that is true Albaby, but there are athletes employed in this league making the minimum salary too. Not every football star is living on easy street in the lap of luxury either.  Trust me, if you are living in NY City playing for the Jets or Giants making the bare minimum with each game check the standard of living in NJ or the Big Apple isn't cheap just to get a basic roof over your head to sleep at night so you can be in close proximity to your football franchise every morning with a reasonable commute back & forth to work. 

Point taken.  I guess I'm just jealous because I'll never see any type of income like that (even league minimum).  But, I can still afford a roof over my head, three square meals a day and send my son to college. 

 

But I digress.........................If I were him, I would try for the best deal possible.  I just said all of those things because it seems silly to me when talking about someone's salary in terms of "millions" that's all.

 

Sorry if I got anyone's feathers ruffled.

It's past 1am in Indianapolis.....

Do we know where AB is?

It feels like the ship may have sailed on this..... maybe?

By the way, FWLIW, this is post 735 for this thread....

I don't think it's over, irsay tweeted a few hours ago about the deal.

The one that starts "Hey Drew...." Bradshaw's agent is Drew something.

 

 

Thanks to you and Gavin.....

 

If I had known it was Drew Rosenhaus,  then I might've had a chance to decode that...

 

But,  now that I know it's DR...   I'd say our chances our less favorable....    he drives a hard bargain....   I'm not sure we'll get the discount we'd like....   and I'd expect at some point that we'll say...  "This is our best and final offer...  we need an answer..."

 

I suspect that's coming sooner rather than later...

 

Of course,  until there's someone from either side saying it's over,   I guess there's still a chance....

 

Thanks again....

Ahmad Bradshaw's agent is Drew Rosenhaus.

That explains a lot right there Superman. Posturing, maneuvering, stonewalling, & working ever so hard for his agent cut/percentage...Nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't lend itself to quick & tidy negotiations.

I get what you are saying Albaby. A lot of NFL player salaries are quite high even astronomical. A valid point. Yes, there are several players who want the biggest paycheck bang for their buck given how short a running back's career is in the league too. No worries Albaby. You didn't ruffle my feathers at all.

 

The good news for the non NFL employee we may not make a king's ransom to perform our occupation, but normally or backs, knees, shoulders & bodies aren't exposed to constant physical punishment at the job site either or frequent concussions either. Life is a series of tradeoffs: Lucrative lifestyle vs less physical torment in a job outside of professional football.

True but we have seen all of those guys already, not saying that I'm not excited because I am, but we haven't seen Landry on the field at all.

All we have seen of Landry are twitter pics of his bionic arms. :(

I've come to the conclusion that Bradshaw doesn't want to go mini camp. If he gets signed he will be obligated to participate so, just wait until Friday night and sign.

That's what I figured as well. But hey, that's his missed opportunity. He should at least peek his head in their to see how we run things in Indianapolis meet the coaches and whatnot. That's what I would do

    • you dont trust ballard you dont think he knows his plan already .  the next year when needed to sign leonard nelson and smith , AC will take off 16 million cap space kelly drops down per year and glow is gone houston autry rhodes gone plus rivers gone .  that can be well over 65 million in new cap space . the key to keeping a team going is the draft look at the ravens they lost tons of great defenders in the early 2012 range and hit in the draft and now they still have a elite defense . 
    • You may be right.   But improved upon by free agency and not the draft likely means more money.  In some cases much more money depending on the player.      That formula of how much more money vs how much more performance is the math that makes or breaks many GM’s.  
    • my main point is  a lot of these guys on this list are dirt cheap .   even the veterans who are playing well are old so they will be cheap .  plus your not counting the draft .   we could still resign houston autry rhodes plus keep a  lot of cheap depth guys and be okay .  houston is making 8 million a year and now he is two years older and his sack numbers are gonna drop from last year we could get him for 5 million autry for 7 and rhodes for 7 and still have 21 million to sign a bunch of cheap depth guys like cox harris pascal muhammad and go get a cheap veteran wr
    • While those are good points I think it all depends on who is there at their pick. If a LT worth the #1 pick get him. It's not a sure thing that AC will be here. He may retire. IMO his play has deteriorated, may be age related? Rookie contract also enters the picture. Do we blitz enough to need a 1st rd pass rusher in this defense? We get plenty of pressure rushing 4.    Plus did Rhodes earn more than a 1 year deal? I am sure he will have a couple of teams that will sign him as good as he has played. He was signed to a prove it deal and he proved it.   Plus you can ignore Ballard may be looking to make a deal up or down in the first round. Lots of direction this draft could turn.   
    • LOL.. it would be nice if things went easy like that. And you'd be maxing things out, without any carry over needed for the big contracts the next year.
