Ahmad Bradshaw has twice had the chance to be the starting running back for two different NFL teams in the last few years and both times injuries sidelined him and ended those plans. But that’s apparently not getting him down as Bradshaw plans on playing again in 2014 despite suffering major injuries over the last two seasons.
“I feel like I might be able to play if I could,” he said. “I feel great coming out of surgery. I just feel like I needed it. (The doctors) said they took that bulging disc off my spinal cord and my blood pressure and everything just dropped. There was a lot of stress and everything built up in my body from that. That being the biggest nerve in your body, it was pretty serious. But I feel good now.”
If he does plan on playing again, Bradshaw will likely be doing so with his third team in three years, as the free agent running back probably won’t be brought back by the Indianapolis Colts. Not only was he not productive due to injury, but the Colts will have Trent Richardson and maybe Donald Brown as their tandem moving forward.
Now if the Colts fail to bring back Brown at the end of the season, Bradshaw becomes a possibility again but overall it looks like the 27 year old will try and lock down a contract with a team in need of a solid backup or change of pace back.
