Bradshaw was rumored to have been interested in the Dolphins. Asked about that, he said "it's business" and "I really didn’t know about the Dolphins."
Bradshaw signed a contract with the Giants for four years, $18 million, with $9 million guaranteed. He admitted that he had hoped for more.
"We didn’t get what we expected to get, but I’m happy with what I got," he said.
Bradshaw will once again team with Brandon Jacobs, who res-structured his contract in part to ensure that Bradshaw would return to the Giants this season. Bradshaw said Jacobs had been calling him daily, urging him to re-sign with the Giants.
Bradshaw, Jacobs and the other veteran free-agent Giants should practice for the first time Thursday night -- provided that the CBA is ratified in time.
