The New York Giants have significant depth and youth at running back—David Wilson and Andre Brown—exposing six-year veteran Ahmad Bradshaw to free agency in spite of a gutsy 1,260 yards from scrimmage performance in 2012.Bradshaw’s versatility makes him very attractive—he returned punts and kicks his first two seasons out of Marshall—but foot and ankle injuries that have prevented him from starting a 16-game season will dampen some teams’ enthusiasm.Bradshaw (1,015 rushing yards, 4.6 yards per attempt, 6 touchdowns) will share the free agent spotlight with the likes of: Steven Jackson (1,045 yds, 4.5 YPA, 4 TD), Reggie Bush (986 yds, 4.3 YPA, 6 TD) and Rashard Mendenhall (182 yds, 3.6 YPA, 0 TD). He could be the cream of that crop as his off-season foot surgery heals on schedule to be 100 percent by the start of OTA’s.Stats courtesy of Pro Football Focus and Pro Football Reference.
