NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday night that Bradshaw is set to visit the Steelers on Thursday, according to a source. Rapoport reported that Bradshaw could fly in to Pittsburgh on Wednesday night, but his visit and physical evaluation will happen Thursday.

If he's recovered from offseason surgery, Bradshaw would be a perfect fit for a Steelers team in need of some fresh talent in the backfield. Although doctors cleared him for OTAs, his health remains a question mark.

CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora first reported the news of Bradshaw's visit.

Wary of a bad medical report sabotaging his attempts to catch on with a team, Bradshaw chose to wait on visiting teams until his foot was further along. Bradshaw represents a potential steal in free agency, and he would fit well in Pittsburgh's offensive scheme.
