    Steelers, Packers interested in Ahmad Bradshaw

    Steelers, Packers interested in Ahmad Bradshaw

    Posted by Michael David Smith on March 17, 201



    All’s been quiet on the Ahmad Bradshaw front since the Giants released the six-year veteran last month. But Bradshaw is starting to draw interest.

    Both the Packers and the Steelers are interested in Bradshaw’s services, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

    It would be unlike the Packers to spend a lot on a free agent running back (or a free agent at any position, for that matter), but Green Bay has been shopping for a running back in free agency. The Packers were interested in Steven Jackson’s services, and they’ve also visited with Peyton Hillis. The Steelers, who let Rashard Mendenhall leave in free agency, are also shopping for depth at running back.

    Bradshaw, who will turn 27 on Tuesday, had foot surgery after the season but is believed to be good to go now. He played in 14 games for the Giants last year, gaining 1,015 yards on 221 carries and adding 23 catches for 245 yards.

    Bradshaw is the No. 76 player on our Free Agent Hot 100, and the only running back on the list who remains unsigned.

    I'm surprised the Packers are included, didn't they just sign Steven Jackson?

    Not sure how he'd fit salary cap-wise, but he'd be a great addition, if fit.

    He'd sure be a draft-changer..

    Health concerns would scare me away.

    How would an incentive laden contract work with the cap? How are you penalized for going over at years end?

    Chadman would be interested in Kevin Smith from the Lions getting a look, if the Steelers are determined to check out the oft-injured.

    IIRC there are two types of incentives. Those that are likely to be earned (LTBE), and those that are unlikely to be earned (UTBE). I do not know if there is a standard for each.

    The LTBE incentives are included this year, the UTBE are not. At the end of the year, adjustments are made and they affect next year's cap. All LTBE incentives that were not earned are subtracted, thus raising next year's cap while UTBE that were reached will lower next year's cap.

    I believe the Steelers received about $500K in cap relief this year because of that difference.

    Hope that helps, and more importantly, I hope I'm actually right.
