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 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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Uh Oh, Mods get ready....... this could beat that WR thread easily if this deal happens :cheer:

:popcorn:

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.

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

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

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.

jesus christ settle down if he was that good he would have been signed ages ago.

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.

    • It really is an excellent history. Some really great players you mentioned , and plenty of banners. The only thing I don’t like is the finalist banners in a stadium. I think banners should be reserved for division or conference championships , and the Super Bowl. The banners also highlight how great Peyton Manning really was. A lot of banners during that era. 
    • BCS stadiums fill up for non conference games with the home teams fans primarily.  You don't think they'd show up for their teams playoff games?  As to the traveling fans most of the games in the BCS that are played the stadiums are 80-90% if not more filled with fans from the home team not the traveling team.  Better records/placement/seeding would give the teams who have earned the home games and their fans a chance to see their team play.  As to the visiting team you could incorporate the bowl games into a playoff format and they'd be televised as they are now.  Don't try and tell me that the visiting teams fans fill the away stadiums now (they don't) those are primarily the home teams.   I follow the FCS playoffs and watch many of the games on ESPN+.  Every announcer and color commentator (most color commentators covering these games are ex-NFL Players).  Many of those guys played at FBS schools.  They all say the same thing.  The FBS is missing out and the FCS is the way to do it regarding playoffs.  If the FBS had a 24 team playoff format where the conference champions got a seed/bye and the rest of the teams making the playoffs were voted in based on their records the interest in a true FBS playoff would be way higher than what you currently have.   There are so many meaningless bowl games where you have half empty stadiums if you are lucky are meaningless to the average fan.  The only ones going to those bowls are family, friends and those who want to take a vacation assuming the game is played somewhere they actually would want to spend some time.    
    • I read your previous posts as well. As a fan I would be fine with just the Indianapolis history but I didn't become a fan until the Colts moved here in 1984. So that is why I am ok with it. Since the Colts have been in Indy, we would have plenty banners: 1987 AFC East Division Champs 1995 AFC Conference Finalist 1999 AFC East Division Champs 2003 AFC South Division Champs 2003 AFC Conference Finalist  2004 AFC South Division Champs 2005 AFC South Division Champs 2006 AFC South Division Champs 2006 AFC Conference Finalist 2006 AFC Champs 2006 World Champions 2007 AFC South Division Champs 2009 AFC South Division Champs 2009 AFC Conference Finalist  2009 AFC Champions 2010 AFC South Division Champs 2013 AFC South Division Champs 2014 AFC South Division Champs 2014 AFC South Division Champs 2014 AFC Conference Finalist   -Great history but not any big accomplishments since the 2014 season. What I consider big accomplishments are winning your division, making the AFC Title Game, winning the AFC, winning the SB.   My Indianapolis ROH would consist of: Offense Peyton Manning and his number #18 would be retired! (QB) Marvin Harrison and his number #88 would be retired! (WR) Reggie Wayne (WR) Edge James (RB) Eric Dickerson (RB) Marshall Faulk (RB) Chris Hinton (OG/L-ROT) Jeff Saturday (C) Jim Harbaugh (QB)   Defense Dwight Freeney (DE) Robert Mathis (DE) Bob Sanders (S)   SP Teams Adam Vinatieri    
    • The uniforms we wore when we beat the Bears in SB 41. = White away with blue numbers!
