Giants released RB Ahmad Bradshaw.
Bradshaw had been bandied about as a candidate for release in the Giants media, but it's still a surprising decision. However, it creates $2.75 million in cap space, and clears the way for 2012 first-round pick David Wilson to take over as starter. Speaking at his season-ending presser, GM Jerry Reese made it clear he remained high on Wilson despite his uneven rookie season. Bradshaw is still only 27 (in March), and has averaged a robust 4.6 yards on 921 career carries, but chronic foot issues bode poorly for his future. He's currently recovering from right foot surgery that's expected to sideline him through mid-April. Regardless, Bradshaw should have little trouble finding work as a complementary back on the open market.
It's going to be interesting to see how the Giants split the usage and what ADP's each running back will bare when fantasy drafts roll around. David Wilson will have the hype but I personally like Andre Brown more.
