NFL > Giants & Ahmad Bradshaw Agree To Terms

~ Ahmad Bradshaw and the New York Giants have reportedly agreed to terms on a new contract. The Giants were in danger of losing the free agent and that would have been another blow to their team.

 The New York Giants have not had the fireworks behind their off-season moves that their division rival Philadelphia Eagles have had so far. Among those included in the deep pool of free agents was Ahmad Bradshaw. The Giants were in danger of losing their explosive running back and it would have been another blow to their team’s roster. It looked as if Miami was going to land Bradshaw until they made the deal for Reggie Bush, since then there was little buzz about where else Bradshaw might go to play. Bradshaw’s new deal with the Giants is reportedly for four years  and worth 18 million, with $9 million guaranteed.

 The new salary cap has already forced the Giants to re-do their offensive line with cuts to Shaun O’Hara and Rich Seubert. They still have a void at tight end because Kevin Boss is now a free agent waiting for his turn at the negotiating table. Wide receiver Steve Smith is also a free agent that the Giants have to re-sign. There was enthusiasm behind the possibility of Plaxico Burress returning to the team, however Burress is now a New York Jet.

 It also remains to be seen what the Giants decide to do with Osi Umenyiora, who reportedly has been granted permission to seek a trade.

The Giants couldn’t afford to lose Bradshaw to another team. The Eagles signing of cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is going to make it very difficult for teams to pass the football effectively and puts the importance on having a strong running game. Putting Bradshaw back with Brandon Jacobs in the backfield at least brings some peace of mind to the Giants fans who may have been wondering when their team was going to make some additions instead of more subtractions.
