Ahmad Bradshaw visits Colts Thursday, according to report

Nick Laham

Bradshaw has garnered little interest on the free agent market, but he could be just what the Colts need.

Ahmad Bradshaw will visit the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Pro Football Talk reports. Bradshaw was released by the New York Giants following the 2012 season after six years with the organization. He ran for over 1,000 yards for the second time in his career last season, but also struggled with the same foot issues that have plagued him throughout his career.

In Indianapolis, Bradshaw likely would not be relied upon as the team's sole ball carrier. The Colts have mentioned giving Vick Ballard a heavy load, with Donald Brown serving as a solid change of pace. Bradshaw would be able to do a little bit of everything for the Colts, from toting the ball, to receiving out of the backfield, to pass blocking for Andrew Luck.

Bradshaw didn't garner much interest in free agency, perhaps because teams were turned off by his constant stream of bumps and nicks. He is averaging a very respectable 4.6 yards per carry across 921 career carries, however, and at 27 years old could still thrive if given the right opportunity.
