The Jets are also hiring Rams scout Brian Heimerdinger to a prominent front-office role. St. Louis let him out of his deal.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 PM) Everyone looks like a bad playcaller when you have no QB and have no talent
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:18 PM) When Heimerdinger was our OC it was when we had a ton of injuries on offense, were down to our 4th or 5th string QB

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) Says Woody didn't want to fire him but had to because of 4 wins. That Idzik had hidden agendas and a plan that never worked.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:26 PM) I expect FA is going to be busy for us, I think public pressure forces them to make a splash because Maccagnan has to prove hes no Idzik and lose out on most FAs. We also have a lot of holes and could fix some with signings

Could former New York Giants starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw trade in his "Big Blue" colors for a "Gang Green" jersey next season?

According to the two-time Super Bowl champion, he is not ruling out a chance to stay in the New York area.

"Whoever I feel that I can get a better chance of playing and helping which team," Bradshaw said on the NFL Network Tuesday. "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."

If this is the case, the offensively-challenged Jets would be silly not to listen.

Bradshaw is the type of explosive tailback the Jets are looking for. He rushed for 1,015 yards and averaged 4.6 yards per carry last season. Jets leading rusher Shonn Greene, who lacks big-play ability, is an unrestricted free agent and probably won't return.

But there are two issues for the Jets to consider: health and money. Bradshaw has battled injuries the past two seasons, and durability could be a concern. The Jets also began the offseason about $19 million over the cap and might not have enough wiggle room to afford Bradshaw in free agency.



I would take Bradshaw depending on how much he would cost. Big upgrade over Greene.

he's a good RB but nothing special. I don't see him as an upgrade over greene. especially with his injury concerns.

Why does every player who the Giants no longer wish to pay thinks he can come to the Jets and help? You got 2 messed up feet and you got beaten out by a rookie and a guy who was a career practice squad player. GTFOH

He would instantly become their best RB.

Personally, I' rather they draft someone in the 2nd-4th round range, but to say he wouldn't help the Jets is comical.

He would be helpful until he hits the DL. Id rather draft a player with some potential than signing an injury prone RB.

i'm with this statement. bradhsaws shelf life is almost over and he was only an average back behind a great o-line with injury issues. just like jacobs. the giants RBs were overrated. it was the o-line mostly. all their Rbs taht leave don't do jack afterwards. jacobs, ward, etc. we still have powell and mcknight and can get another one in the 4th or later

Behind a great OL? The giants OL hasn't been great in years. Hes coming off of a season with a 4.6 YPC and over 1,000+ yards. He knows how to actually make guys miss and break tackles.

I absolutely agree on drafting a RB in the draft. I'd be shocked if they didn't. I don't see why they can't do both if the price is right.

If Bradshaw is agreeable to a contract structure similar to Landry's this past season (aka stay healthy, get paid), I see no reason why any Jets fan would be against it. Hell, I'd be for it even with a normal contract structure assuming it fits under their cap plans.

He's light years ahead of Greene, can catch the ball out of the backfield, and fits the West Coast scheme. He'll be 27 next season (Greene will be 28 with only 100 less career carries) and basically has four years of experience (barely carried the ball his first two years). He's not old and doesn't have that much mileage on him. He should have at least 2-3 more extremely productive seasons.

you mean an o-line that produced 3 RBs (warn, jacobs, bradshaw) who all averaged over 5 YPC and 2 (jacobs and ward) who broke 1000 yards? ward went off to TB and did nothing afterwards. Jacobs averaged over 4.5 YPC his career and couldn't even see the field in SF. the giants o-line is still top 5 even last year. and they actually have a threat of a pass, something we don't have. with cruz and nicks teams have to respect that and can't load the box either. bradhsaw has never been healthy a full season since getting the work load. has 2 bad ankles, and has been behind a great o-line his whole career. yes he has had some really great rushes but overall he's an average back. brandon lloyd has made some of the best catches i've ever seen, but he still sin't a good WR. a few highlight runs doens't make you a great additoin to a team

Ummm... have you watched any Giants games? The safeties have a ton of respect for Eli and his 2 Pro Bowl WRs. Bradshaw is running into 6 man fronts because the Giants vertical passing game is so good. On the Jets he'd be nothing more than another 2 yards and a cloud of dust RB with broken feet.

I've watched a ton of Giants games... Bradshaw is good. Greene wouldn't do that, he can't read holes and doesn't make anyone miss or break tackles. Plus he has no burst.

You act like Bradshaw sucks, but the stats and film say otherwise. And that rookie was a 1st round pick who is the Giants future at RB and Andre Brown didn't beat him out, but he has skill as well. The Giants like the backfield by committee approach.

Look at the film again and see where the CBs and SS line up on every snap. He's not seeing a defender until he's 3 yards up the field because of how teams play the Giants passing game.

Bradshaw may have benefited from his circumstances, but when healthy he's still better than anything else we've got. He'd be worth signing if his feet weren't made of paper mache.
