Free agent running back Ahmad Bradshaw has finally found a new home. After months of searching for a new job and making visits, Bradshaw has finally landed in the AFC with one of the top up and coming teams in the league. It was just a few hours after Jim Irsay tweeted out that he had money waiting for Bradshaw that it was announced the former New York Giants running back was signing with the Indianapolis Colts.
Adam Schefter of ESPN passed along the news:
Colts and RB Ahmad Bradshaw agreed to one-year deal.

Bradshaw will have an opportunity to compete for the starting job in Indianapolis, and it would not be a surprise if he was able to beat out Vick Ballard for the gig. In fact, you should probably consider Bradshaw the favorite. Ballard would best be suited with a role as the short-yardage and goal line back.
The question will just be whether or not Bradshaw can remain healthy.
