New York Giants issue statements on release of Ahmad Bradshaw, Chris Canty

Ahmad Bradshaw - Al Bello

The New York Giants released Ahmad Bradshaw and Chris Canty Wednesday, and praised both on their way out the door.

The New York Giants issued statements Wednesday from general manager Jerry Reese and head coach Tom Coughlin on the decision to release veteran players Ahmad Bradshaw and Chris Canty.

On Bradshaw

Reese:

"Pound for pound, Bradshaw is one of the toughest football players that I've been around. Ahmad played football like Giants football should be played."

Coughlin:

"Bradshaw has great toughness. He plays through anything. He doesn't just talk about playing hurt. He does play hurt. If anyone knows the quality of this man's pain threshold, all you need to do is watch him on a Monday when he can't even walk. He gets a little better on Tuesday, a little better on Wednesday. By Thursday his spirits are back up and whether he can or he can't, he's telling you he's practicing on Friday, and he does. And he plays on Sunday. And he goes through the same cycle. He did that for two or three years."

On Canty

Reese:

"Chris Canty is a pro's pro, a true team player and competitor. He helped us get to the top in 2011 and it was a pleasure having him here during his time with the New York Giants."

Coughlin:

"Chris Canty is a high-character, highly intelligent young man. He distinguished himself a year ago down the stretch for a number of reasons. One, the quality of his play, and two, is the toughness he displayed, which was a great statement about the quality of the individual."
