Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Sunday that the Pittsburgh Steelers have interest in former New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw. Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, however, reports on Monday via Twitter that the Steelers have no plans right now to bring in Bradshaw, per a team source of his.
As I pointed out in my previous post about Bradshaw, he has several medical red flags associated with him right now and is likely still recovering from his latest foot surgery. Should he ultimately wind up being signed by the Steelers, I would be shocked if it was for much more than the minimum.
The Steelers are expected to draft a running back at some point in the upcoming draft and adding an unhealthy Bradshaw at this point in time certainly doesn\’t make much sense.
Like I posted this morning, it is not uncommon to see teams reported as having interest in free agents during this time of the year. How often that is truly the case, however, is anyone\’s guess.
In other words, don\’t believe everything that you read.
