Giants part ways with Ahmad Bradshaw

Well, apparently there’s a roster spot open in New York for Brandon Jacobs.
The Giants have released veteran running back Ahmad Bradshaw, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
The move comes as Bradshaw’s base salary moves from $3 million to $3.75 million, and as 2012 rookie first-rounder David Wilson has shown he’s capable of holding onto the football — and in turn the starting job.
In recently acknowledging that he has undergone another foot surgery, Bradshaw acknowledged that he could be released in favor of a Wilson/Andre Brown combination.
Bradshaw, a seventh-round draft pick in 2007, was a member of two Super Bowl championship teams. He rushed for 1,050 yards in 14 games last season. His career high came in 2010, when he gained 1,235 yards.
As a vested veteran, he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
