He did, and he was.
They were planning ahead for financial reasons ... true indeed they were letting Bradshaw go no matter what happened. Agree there ... at 26 he has a lot left in the tank and just has to be managed properly.
Wilson however wasn't what they expected to be early. They had to overuse Bradshaw early cause Wilson was a liability and couldn't be trusted. They only did that cause they knew he wasn't in their future plans. Giants mismanaged Bradshaw because of their future planning. Any team that signs him to a 2 year deal or whatever will manage him better and get the most for him. We can't keep drafting these RB's that you can't trust getting 1st string reps. When we got LT everyone thought he had nothing in the tank. Who knew he'd be what he was here. If we rebuild this terrible offensive system, the O Line gets back to dominant, and we get some real weapons out on the field ... this guy is still a 4 and a half yard a carry guy. Thats just who he is he's averaged 4.6 for his career. Everyone here says he's in the downside of his career and like he's washed up. Shows how educated some Jet fans about this guy when last year was his 2nd best season as a pro. He's been in the league for 6 years but didn't have over 100 carries til 09 when he only had 163 carries. He has 2-3 solid years left in him. A 4 and a half yard a carry guy? I'd get him if he's not costly .. we need that.
