Ahmad Bradshaw, who scored the game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl XLVI for the New York Giants in the final minute, is now a free agent and is still looking for a job.

The latest report from the Indianapolis Star indicates that he is negotiating with the Indianapolis Colts, but it appears that the talks have stalled. Bradshaw has been in contact with the Colts since Thursday.

He was released by the Giants after the end of last season to clear salary space, despite rushing for over 1,000 yards. Bradshaw is just 27 years of age, and has been productive in his six-year career, all with New York.

He would be a good fit for the Colts, who need help at the running back position with Vick Ballard, Delone Carter, and Donald Browncurrently on the depth chart. Ballard had a nice season in 2012 with 814 yards rushing, but he is not believed to be a true lead back.

Adding Bradshaw would give the Colts a legitimate threat in the backfield, especially on passing downs, which the Colts will frequent with Andrew Luck at the helm.

It is not known whether Bradshaw is negotiating with any other teams, but unless he’s holding out for a ridiculous contract, there’s no reason why the Colts shouldn’t sign him.
