New York Giants list David Wilson and Andre Brown as starting backs early on

According to Ralph Vacchiano on Twitter, the New York Giants have both David Wilson and Andre Brown listed as starting running backs on their 1st unofficial depth chart.

Wilson is expected to win the starting job, but there’s a possibility that Brown will handle much of the short-yardage and goal-line work. How the Giants will distribute carries in the pre-season should give us a much better feel on the situation.

In their 1st year without Ahmad Bradshaw, their running game will be a lot different. Both Wilson and Brown are talented, as Wilson is also listed as a kick returner. Wilson picked up 358 yards on 71 carries with 4 touchdowns last season. As Brown rushed for 385 yards on 73 carries, rushing for 8 touchdowns before breaking his right leg in late November.

Bradshaw led the team in rushing the past 3 seasons, gaining 1,015 yards last season, 37 yards being his longest. Bradshaw was more of a power back for the Giants, as Brown is more in a Bradshaw mold.
