NFL Injury Report:
The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to meet with New York Giants
free agent running back Ahmad Bradshaw again prior to the upcoming NFL Draft,
according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
#Steelers have space to match Sanders' offer. But cap may fill up. Plan to meet with Ahmad Bradshaw again pre-draft. May need $ to sign him

The Steelers hosted Bradshaw earlier this offseason, and
they would now like to check the status of the running back’s surgically
repaired right foot. If everything is to their liking, Pittsburgh is expected
to make a run at signing the back.
Bradshaw’s first visit with the team ended without a
contract offer. Pittsburgh expressed interest in the veteran, but had concerns
about his injury history and durability. If these fears are alleviated during a
second check up, the Steelers could look to add Bradshaw to help replace
Beyond the Steelers, the Cincinnati Bengals have also
expressed interest in Bradshaw, and the sides could set up a visit in the next
week or two, according to Pro Football Talk.
