Former New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw visited with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, but left without a contract, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Twitter.
According to a few other media reports, Bradshaw took a physical and met with team personnel during his visit. It should be noted, however, that Bradshaw, who had surgery on his right foot back in January, appeared to be wearing a boot when he posed for a picture with Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown outside the team\’s facility.
With a few teams reportedly still having an interest in Bradshaw, combined with the fact that the Steelers only have around $2.5 million in cap space available right now, it is not surprising that he left town without a deal.
While we can only speculate, you would have to think that the 27-year-old running back would not be willing to take less than the $1.323 million that both Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman are scheduled to earn in 2013.
The Steelers reportedly remain very interested in Bradshaw, despite letting him leave without a contract on Thursday. Perhaps they just wanted to get a look at him prior to the draft taking place in case they aren\’t able to come away with one of the top running backs that they might have their eyes on.
As for now, everything remains status quo with both sides.
