Anyone get a look at Mr. Bradshaw last night? A bit on the small side, currently weighing in at 200lbs, but he’s certainly a heck of a playmaker. Made a 51-yard shovel pass look like a piece of cake. The little guy is also set to become a free agent in five months.
Again, plenty of immediate Dolphin news to sink our teeth into, with preseason in full swing, and the regular season fast approaching. Still, we think it’s also worth keeping an eye on the future. This future includes an injury prone, free agent to be in Ronnie Brown. This future also includes a free spirit named Ricky Williams, with a wandering heart, and non-pigskin pursuits.
This future could also include Ahmad. It isn’t completely clear how the Giants will split time between slugger Brandon Jacobs and the home run hitter Bradshaw. Jacobs has three years remaining on a 25 million dollar contract. If New York prefers Bradshaw they could jettison Jacobs and lock the speedster up. Or they could dedicate huge money to a shared backfield. The Giants also have a couple of budding offensive stars already on their hands with Hakeem Nicks and Steve Smith, who they’d be smart to extend sooner rather than later.
Again, this is all speculation. It’s impossible to predict the future, and there are many variables in play. But it’s nice to know that there may be some solutions (please also see our previous post about 2011 free agent Deangelo Williams, https://thebottlenose.wordpress.com/2010/07/25/dolphins-2011-starting-rb-deangelo-williams/ ), if we’re forced to move on from Ronnie, Ricky, or both.
