Dude has always been overrated. One of the worst fumblers in the NFL.

The Giants will be better without him

I would love to see him in Buffalo, even with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson.

He had 7 in 2010. Every other season he's had 3 or less. Not sure how that ranks across the NFL but doesn't seem that bad.

It's pretty bad given the limited number of touches he has per season.

Overrated? Then you dont know the meaning of the word.

He had his highest total in 2010 in his best season. And then the following year he had 1 or 2. Ive seen worse.

I swear if the Panthers sign him I'm going to slap somebody.


But really, plenty of teams could use a RB but might not be willing to p[ay whatever he's asking. I'm sure he'll find a team rather quick, though.

He'd be a good fit on any NFL roster IMO. He shouldn't have to wait very long to find a new team.

AB is still a solid back. He can play third downs too since he excels at pass-blocking.

The only season he was extremely fumble-prone was 2010 when the entire team was wreckless with the football. But even in that same year he rushed for over 1,200 yards which is still his career-high.

I kind of seeing him follow a Chester Taylor type role for the rest of his career.

Sign a solid 4 year deal with a team, be the starting RB, and then in a year or 2 that team drafts a big time RB and goes on to have a very strong running attack, also keeping Bradshaw fresh.

If I had to guess, I think a team like Miami should do this.

Miami wanted him two years ago but AB chose to resign with NYG. That could be a fit. I don't think Bush is returning to Miami either.

Seems like a sensible career path for Bradshaw, but I get the feeling any veteran back Miami may bring in will be playing second banana to Lamar Miller from day one.

He could come in and be the guy since Ryan Matthews is the unluckiest man on earth.

Ahmad Bradshaw fumbles once every 55.4 scrimmage touches. For a comparison, here is a list of the players that led their teams and rushed for 700+ yards this season (excludes QBs and first and second year players due to small sample size compared to other players).

CJ Spiller - 44.4
Ryan Mathews - 47.9
Reggie Bush - 49.5
Darren McFadden - 61.8
Jamaal Charles - 62.4
Frank Gore - 71.8
Adrian Peterson - 74.2
Willis McGahee - 77.1
Shonn Greene - 80.6
Marshawn Lynch - 85.1
Arian Foster - 90.5
Michael Turner - 100.5
Matt Forte - 109.2
Chris Johnson - 112.8
LeSean McCoy - 117.2
Steven Jackson - 121.8
DeAngelo Williams - 164.5
Ray Rice - 218.1
BenJarvus Green-Ellis - 278.6

Nice post. Thanks for providing the info. Guess he is pretty bad in comparison. I never knew the "law firm" was that sure handed. Thanks.
