Bradshaw was released by the New York Giants for cap reasons after an injury-plagued year. He had foot surgery during the offseason and is now cleared to start visiting teams. The Packers were pursuing Steven Jackson before he signed with the Falcons, while the Steelers are looking for any kind of pulse in the running game after Rashard Mendenhall, Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman disappointed.

Despite the injury history, Bradshaw is just 26 years old and still capable of producing. In 2012, he rushed for 1,015 yards and six touchdowns while missing two games and never playing at 100% health. He is easily the best free agent running back left on the market and would be a perfect fit in either Green Bay or Pittsburgh.
