Time to re-sign Ahmad Bradshaw


Recommended Posts

There are other backs available.

Ben Tate

Ray Rice

Montee Ball

Steven Jackson

Chris Johnson

Felix Jones

...just to name a few

If i would give ANYONE a chance, it would be C2KJ. People who were/are on the Herron bandwagon because he was a quicker change-up RB that could catch out of the backfield,....C2KJ is 250% that....

Whatever anyone else thinks, I have always loved Bradshaw's style of play. He gives 100% on every play, but is oft-injured which is probably why they won't take a chance on him. Even back when he was with the Giants, I always tried to get him on my fantasy team. Although I hate to say it, I think that regardless of who we have running this week, it'll be tough to run the ball...

Only way it makes sense is if it's a late season signing to possibly to give our guys a rest if we're cruising into whatever playoff seed we're getting.

Play him now, he'd be on his usual IR spot by midseason.

This is all hypothetical of course, I think Indy is done with the Bradshaw experiment.

 In fact, it's past time. I can't believe we haven't signed him already, unless he's gained 100 lbs. or something. Now, Boom's gone and more than likely, Ballard will be too. I know, I can hear it now. Bradshaw's more injury prone than any of them....Bradshaw was having a great year until he broke his leg. 'broke his leg'. A broken bone hardly falls into the category of a chronic injury. Let's get him back now.

 

Bradshaw was a major concern injury-wise BEFORE he came to Indy.  And he followed up those concerns with what? - playing in 12 out of possible 32 regular season games in his two years with the Colts with both of those seasons ending with him on IR.

 

You say it is past time for him to be signed - that literally makes no sense.  They clearly like Gore and the two rooks backing him up to say nothing of Ballard.  If they get into the season and start dealing with injuries, then they can think about bringing him back.  Now is NOT the time.

Bless you.    I struggled how to say just what you did.   

 

Without trying to state the obvious,  you're a better man than I!!          :worthy:

Well, we have one RB on the roster who's actually played in the NFL in the last couple years. And he's 32.

Think there are any other teams that can say that?

We'll have to revisit this subject in a few weeks. We may be happy with what we have. Or not?

 

I understand. I hope we're happy with what we have. I have a good feeling about Robinson. I think he plays well for us, but I've been wrong before...Just ask my wife :)

 

We'll know more in a few weeks

Why? So Arthur Jones has someone to talk to on the sideline after he gets injured?

It's a matter of time before Ballard goes down for the year. We all know it's coming. I like Ahmad for what he can give us for a short stretch of games when healthy. Wish there was a way we could sign him closer to the playoffs. But he will likely be signed or injured by then.

Yes, Ballard is probably going out injured sooner than later, but Bradshaw is not the answer with his injury history.

A 1,2 punch of Gore and Bradshaw would be gloriously violent.

I'm actually pretty shocked that nobody's picked him up yet. He will surely be picked up after week 1.

I'd be all for this move... The guy has had injuries, but you couldn't compare his injury prone-ness to Ballard, IMO... He's a much better back than any of our backups... Not even close.

    • Again hindsight is 20:20 but essentially that is what the difference amounts to.   I truly believe it comes down to how folks evaluate Fields and Wentz.    If someone loves Fields then that's the way it should go especially w his cheaper rookie contract.   If someone believes Wentz can be a top-15 QB again (not even the MVP 2017 version but just the Top-15 2018-2019 version) then a lot of times the idea of giving up a potential top-notch pass rusher along w another pick is hard to stomach.   I actually have some faith in Wentz so I am ok with what we did. Fields is awfully enticing though. I hope he works out well for Chicago and that more importantly Chicago works out well for him.    
    • I was for Wentz early, one of the first here. And knew if Eagles were foolishly getting rid of him, he would be more easily acquired than a Fields,Wilson etc... I think we lucked into getting  Wentz and he will be a good QB for us.   But I didn't think Fields, my favorite QB draftee would fall to 11.. and I would have been thrilled & excited if we moved up to get Fields.   It is what it is and be happy we have Wentz and not Brissett, Dalton, etc...
    • Foster thinks he's 25 again and playing for the Jazz  . The Pacers are a mess that is for sure.
    • In Ballard’s interview today, he discussed the fact the he didn’t want to trade down as he didn’t have enough information, and instead let the players come to him. I believe he felt similarly with trading up. And he might have come to that conclusion earlier when he decided it was worth it to get Wentz and not gamble too many picks away to get one of the 5 rookie QBs.    It was a rough year to scout players, from limited contact during the college season to having no combine... Essentially, everyone is in the same boat in doing a little bit of guessing and hoping that their guys were the right guys. It also makes sense that Chris would look for some high character men, as that was something he could gather from their actions and interviews.    I truly believe Chris feels that Carson is the best choice for the team right now. 
    • Justin Fields for Wentz, Kwitty Paye, and a 2022 4th round draft pick?..... YES....everyday and Sunday too!!! A most likely Franchise QB/potentially Elite for 15 years...how can you turn that down?
