The Colts and Ahmad Bradshaw may still be close to finalizing a contract. But how close they are is now worth questioning. According to NFL Network's Kimberly Jones, who broke the story earlier Thursday, talks between the team and player have reached a "stalemate." Jones also said a deal that seemed close to done may not be now.
However, this doesn't really change much from my post some hours ago. As Jones points out, a stall happens often during contract negotiations as the sides try to settle on how much money should be involved. It also means the deal is not off, and there has been enough progress here to think that Bradshaw will end up joining the Colts in time. Again, if/when Bradshaw does sign on the dotted line, he will be a low-end RB2. A resolution could be reached as soon as Friday.
