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.

I didn't see this one coming. I think Wilson gets every opportunity to be the #1 but that being said, most teams are using a semblance of RBBC and this could easily be just that.

Yeah, I didn't see Wilson as a bruiser goal-line back. But I didn't watch much NYG football, so maybe I'm wrong.

I could easily see Andre Brown worked in.

Why that much love for Brown, I own Wilson in 2 dynos & have Brown paired with him in one. I do have an offer out on Brown in the other (offering Bradshaw in fact). Anyway, I like Brown, but I didn't see the playmaking ability that I see in Wilson. Most people are talking rbbc with a split of about 70/30 in favor of Wilson. Interested in your opinion, thanks.

Brown, at least now would project to have more value in heavy TD scoring leagues if he'd take on the role that B Jacobs had when he was at the top of his game and splitting time in NYG's backfield.

Seems like eternity but it was only 5 years ago with only 200 or so rushing attempts, he put up 1,000 yards and 15 TD's.

Not suggesting that's Browns upside - only that GLB and 175-200 touches seems like more a fit for his skills in relation to what Wilson's are.

I think the powers that be know something Im damned sure of myself. Wilson is going to be a stud.

I sold low but I am glad I got out from Bradshaw when I did this year.

My wife is happy I recommended wilson as a keeper flyer in our league too.

Yeah, I wouldn't go out picking up Ahmad Bradshaw.

It's going to be a very weak market (how many teams are searching for RBs? STL, NYJ, GB, maybe ARI). And Reggie Bush will find a job sooner than Bradshaw.


The market will be even smaller for teams looking for an RB that has an injury history AND fumbling problems.

Looks like I'm on my island thinking Andre Brown will be the more valuable of the two. That's cool. I like it out here by myself. 8)

He will eat into Wilson's workload more than his owner's will like, but he is second fiddle. I am more likely to have him on my team in august though.

Brown basically only played in 8 games this past year

73 carries
385 yards
8 rushing TD's
5.27 yards per attempt

You can't extrapolate those nubmers out to 175-200 touches with any reliability whatsoever but in the 2 games I watched him where he got double digit touches, (TBB & GB), he passed the eye test and looked pretty good.

I do agree, since I think of Andre Brown as the more every-down back.

But a 1st round pick is a lot to pay on a career back-up, and David Wilson is fairly explosive.

It might be more like a FJax / CJ Spiller situation. I currently see Wilson as more of a change-of-pace back.


Ultimately, given how Coughlin used Bradshaw/Jacobs together, and then virtually abandoned Jacobs, it's hard to tell what's going on in his old, creaky noggin.
