    Would this be an acceptable risk to take?

    I just saw where the Giants released Ahmad Bradshaw. He was injured this year and needs foot surgery again. But....he still have 1050 yards in 14 games and is a great running back when healthy.

    If the Steelers could get him for a good deal, would you take the risk on him?

    Plus, the new o-line coach is familiar with him from the Giants.

    I always thought he was underrated. But his injury history scares me a bit. I would have to find out more about that before I would be comfortable with signing him either way. But when healthy, he is a very good back - nice combination of power, some quickness, some shiftiness. Good effort.

    If he's cheap, bring him in.

    Every signing is subject to passing a medical anyway, so if he is not ready he fails the medical.

    I'll pass on Ahmad, and take Le'veon Bell in the fourth and call it a day.

    I like Bradshaw when he is healthy, but he has had a lot of lower extremity problems over the past few years. If he was healthy, he is absolutely worth a look, but I'm not quite sure that he will be healthy again.

    To be honest, I really like Bell. I don't think he makes it out of the third.

    I'd be very happy with Bell in the 4th and maybe OK if we took him in the 3rd. I think he's a good fit.

    I like Bradshaw as a player. But the last thing we need right now is another oft injured player in the lineup. Ill pass.

    I would take a RB in the draft and bring in Bradshaw and re-sign Dwyer.
