Ahmad Bradshaw does not know what his future holds, other than surgery on his left ankle. It will be the same procedure he had done to his right ankle last offseason.
"It was something that bothered me," Bradshaw said. "It wasn’t a big factor unless someone really got a hold of it. It was really no problem because I could fight through it and I’d been fighting through it for years. I’m just ready to get it fixed.
"At the end of the year, I felt a lot of easy tackles I could break at the beginning of the year, it was just bringing me down. I had to lay down on certain tackles just because (the ankle) gave out on me or I felt it was about to get rolled up under me. It was different things and playing around injuries. That’s what I was doing toward the end of the year."
"I talked to the Giants on Exit Day and they said I was a big priority for them to come back," Bradshaw said yesterday on Radio Row at the Super Bowl XLV Media Center in Dallas. "I’m just letting them handle it. All I can do really is be ready for next year and be fully prepared.
"I don’t think they’ll be able to finance both of us financially," Bradshaw said. "But you just never know. It may be possible. There’s even talk they might keep both of us. You just never know."
Bradshaw, actually, would like that. Despite a somewhat stormy season in which Jacobs began the season as a very unhappy backup, then replaced Bradshaw in the starting lineup because of Bradshaw’s fumbling problem (seven fumbles, six lost), Bradshaw believes the two can peacefully co-exist.
"You know, Brandon’s a great back," Bradshaw said. "I really love playing behind him and him beating up the defenses and me coming in and running behind him and just eating up the yardage with him. I think we’re a great duo together, I really do."
