Ahmad Bradshaw interested in New York Giants, Jets

The New York Giants cut running back Ahmad Bradshaw because his salary no longer matched his injury-plagued production. But Bradshaw isn't so sure if he'll be joining a new team. Or if he'll be heading to a new city.

"In playing with the Giants, they had mentioned that there was a chance for me to come back. I'm always up for that," Bradshaw told "NFL AM" on Tuesday. "Whatever, whoever needs me, whoever can use me. Whoever I feel that I can get a better chance of playing and helping which team. The New York Jets are a team that I've kinda been thinking about, just to stay home, not make a big move from New York. It's just right across the street from where I am now."

It's interesting to hear Bradshaw raise a return to the Giants as a possibility. Coming off foot surgery, it's not like Bradshaw will be a high-priced free agent this offseason. He might not sign with a team until he's fully healthy sometime before training camp. The Giants have David Wilson and Andre Brown in place, but Bradshaw would still fit in as a third-down back.

The Jets also make some sense. They need help at running back, and Bradshaw could come at a relatively low price. He's only 28 years old, but there's a feeling he's an old 28 because of his injuries and running style. Although Bradshaw said he can still be a starting running back, he's a risky signing. Sounds just like something the Jets would do.

UPDATE: According to the New York Daily News, the Jets' response to Bradshaw's interest is simply: "Thanks, but no thanks."
