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.
