found this on pft,

 

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports the Colts and free agent Ahmad Bradshaw are negotiating a contract, and it "looks like a deal will get done."

Bradshaw is in Indy at this very moment. The Indianapolis Star also believes the Colts' interest in the 27-year-old is "serious," not simply just tire-kicking. The fit couldn't be any better. The Colts' backfield lacks talent, and Bradshaw could easily come in and take over lead-back duties from Vick Ballard. Bradshaw is perfect for OC Pep Hamilton's West Coast offense as a supreme blocker and pass catches. We could hear something by the end of the night.

I would love this move, as long as the guy can stay healthy. I doubt he's going to break the bank at all, the guy probably just wants to play.

I like this, regardless of what everyone thinks of Ballard it was one season.  Donald Brown well were really still waiting, and Carter I like him but still none of these guys are as good as Bradshaw when he is healthy and if we only use him as a part time back to share carries with Ballard than this would give us a very nice backfield.  I have watched a lot of Giants game as my wife is a Giants fan and one of my best friends is a Giants fan, the guy is a beast.

 

So risk v reward like everything in the NFL if he comes at the right price I so take a flyer just build insurance into the deal.

 

GO Colts !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this would be a good signing but i tend to disagree that bradshaw will take the lead-back duties away from ballard...

This is a great insurance policy...and an ideal fit for Bradshaw, he doesnt have to be the man. RB by committee is how you do it now...Im happy about this

I doubt that Bradshaw would but the article state that he "could easily" take over which is not a stretch by any means.

Honestly you guys are overrating his "injury plaguedness" The guy only missed 2 games last year, and has been very healthy when compared to other NFL players. In my mind if we sign him he would be competing for the starting job and i believe that he would win it fairly easily from Ballard. 

 

I agree.  Even when Bradshaw has played injured, he has still been pretty productive.

Not really. The prospect of getting Victor Cruz or Fitz or any of the other WR we could conjure up is far more exciting than actually signing a steal of a running back who immediately makes that position group better.

Dreams are sexier than reality.

Now the REAL question is........

Who's gonna be the FIRST member to complain about Ahmad Bradshaw taking Dallas Clark's number if we do sign him?

Hmmmmm lol

This would be awesome. Hope Grigs gets it done. Even just to spell Ballard, but honestly, Bradshaw can challenge to start for 1-2 more seasons.

It could still be like a 20 page thread maybe longer if we sign him

I don't see what all the hype is about...Bradshaw is not that great...he would just be another cog in the rotation.

Bradshaw is a top 10 runningback when healthy.

Bradshaw's injury prone label is not due to how many games he misses, just that he always seems to be dinged up.. That being said.. I like him over Carter, but wouldn't replace Donald with him because we need a reliable change of pace... I like the idea of fielding Ballard, Brown, and Bradshaw with Williams returning kicks and one of the FB's in on some packages, but we would have to get rid of Carter (or a FB) to make roster room.

I sure hope big AB still represents the big #44 that's if McNary doesn't make the team or gives it up..

Love this idea.  If we don't have to spend to much.  Could cut brown.  And Bradshaw could be a good compliment to Ballard.  A proven back.  Who ran for over 1000 last year.  Yes please

He is better then brown or carter.  Put him with Ballard.  And we could have one of the top rb's in the league.  Esp with our new line.

Bradshaw to Colts all but done. He wants to play for a contender and they want him on the team. Very team friendly contract as well

He has durability issues. Check the stats. He averaged 4.6 YPC, didn't drop a single pass, and gave up 5 pass pressures when blocking.

    • The bolded is right on.   Colts certainly have the ability for big plays, stretching the field, and so on. Running the ball effectively when we are 3rd and 2.5 to 3 yards out, has been one of our biggest challenges. The Pats at that same down and distance, have created the ability to do several things effectively by being proficient and consistent with all of them. You know  that Edleman/Welker/Amendola types can get that 3 yard pass, and it seems you have to defend it to the point of weakening your run defense.    The Colts had something similar with Manning/Edge/Marvin. 
    • We paid $12 million per for a past his prime Justin Houston.  I could see the Colts paying that much for McCoy if they really want him. It wouldn’t sink our cap at all to do a 2 year deal for that amount.  Should be enough to slap a Shoe upside his head and improve our D-line. 
    • The "patriot way" is just another way of saying shut the bleep up and do as we say 
    • The Browns are an enigma. In many ways, they are last year Jags- pre season favorites. They could fall like the Jags did, or escalate.  Under old regimes, they fold like a cheap lawn chair. Under Dorsey, I think they compete/ possibly win the AFC North.     The $$ almost always win, no matter what players say about championships.   If a player in his last stages is truly serious about playing for a champ, he goes to Belichick, takes a pay cut, checks his ego at the door, and applies his skills in the Patriot way.
    • Probably a nice guy, and I wish him well with the Raiders, but the Colts had to cut their losses and move on. He was always a "project" guy who just never really made much of an impact with the Colts. His career stats, through five years (23 receptions, 384 yards, 4 TDs), barely add up to one passable season for an average NFL tight end. Experiment over. Now on to Mo Alie-Cox who may be on a much shorter development timetable to prove that he's worth a roster spot.
