New York Giants fans still hoping to see Ahmad Bradshaw rumbling down the field at MetLife Stadium with an "NY" logo on his helmet saw that scenario officially end after the running back signed a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday. They'll probably get to see Bradshaw run in the Meadowlands — when the Giants host Indy in an exhibition game August 18 — but the popular player will be wearing the Colts horseshoe on the side of his head bucket. Bradshaw, though still only 27-years-old, was released by the Giants back in February in what was considered a cost-saving move even after gaining over 1,000 yards in a injury-plagued season. The Giants saved $2.75 million in cap space by cutting the often injured Bradshaw. Surgeries to repair broken bones in both of his feet have been the bane of Bradshaw's stellar career with the Giants.  He underwent another procedure following the 2012 season. The one-year deal with the Colts reportedly includes a $250,000 signing bonus, $1.1 million salary plus per-game incentives that could push his total earnings to over $2 million for the 2013 season. The 2007 seventh-round draft pick rushed 221 times for 1,015 yards in 14 games last season. His history of injuries made him a risky proposition for the Giants. It helped that they had David Wilson, their 2012 first-round draft pick, ready and waiting on the Giants depth chart. Wilson is expected to be the Giants' No. 1 back this season, with the emerging Andre Brown as their 1-2 punch.  Bradshaw, meanwhile, will have a chance to compete for playing time in a crowded Colts backfield with Vick Ballard and Donald Brown. Bradshaw's last game in Indianapolis, Big Blue fans will remember, was Super Bowl XLVI when he famously fell backwards into the end zone for the game-winning touchdown in the Giants' upset of the New England Patriots at Lucas Oil Stadium. It's an image that Bradshaw will live forever in Giants lore.
