Former New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw might have left town Thursday following his visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers without a contract, but it doesn\’t mean that the two sides won\’t come to terms later down the road.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports on Friday that Bradshaw will be visiting the Steelers again in a few weeks to show the team how his foot rehab process is going. Bradshaw took a physical while in town on Thursday, but he doesn\’t appear to be anywhere close to being fully recovered from the surgery that he had on his right foot back in January. In fact, Bradshaw can be seen still wearing a boot when he stopped and posed for a picture Thursday with wide receiver Antonio Brown outside the Steelers facility.
Bradshaw is full of metal right now, and the surgery that he had back in January was the third on that foot. The Steelers are taking it very slow with the 27-year-old and will be monitoring his rehab closely, as they should.
As far as cap space goes, the Steelers could likely accommodate him at any time moving forward, as long as his first-year cap hit remains under $2.5 million. It would be hard to believe, however, that Bradshaw will need even that much cap space considering his status and the poor free agent market
