Yesterday Ahmad Bradshaw was released by the New York Giants. Despite being a crucial part of the 2012 Super Bowl victory against the New England Patriots, scoring the winning touchdown and rushing for over 1,000 yards in 14 games, only 12 of which he started.
Today he went on WFAN in New York City and talked with host Mike Francesca, via Sports Radio Interviews, to talk about his release.
“I kind of saw this coming. I knew it would happen sooner or later; I didn’t know when,” Bradshaw told Francesca. “I’m just looking towards the next thing to happen. The only hard part is that I’m leaving a family, a great family, that I’ve learned to love.”
But despite helping the Giants to a Super Bowl title and a 1,000 yard rushing season despite numerous injuries Bradshaw isn’t surprised by the move.
“This is part of the business. Like I said, the Giants are still in my family. I’ll always remember those guys,” Bradshaw said. “The relationship built between us, that will always be there. They respected me, they called me … I talked to everybody there. There’s no hard feeling there.”
Bradshaw doesn’t think this is the end of his career and with a 1,000 yard 2012 campaign under his belt you’d have to think he’d find a home in the NFL for next season.
“I’m very confident I’m not done,” Bradshaw said. “I plan to be back and maybe even better this year. … I’ve always had a chip on my shoulder, but this makes it a very big one.”
