Pro Football Talk reports that the Colts have decided to give it another year with running back Ahmad Bradshaw . He played in just three games as a Colt in 2013, and it wasn't a foot problem that did him in for once. It was his neck. Bradshaw didn't play after Week 3 and underwent season-ending surgery in Week 5. He finished with 186 yards and two scores over 41 carries.
That works out to 4.5 yards per carry. So, despite a lengthy injury history, Bradshaw showed that he can still be a productive piece at this level. He will turn 28 years old later this month and should be the odds-on favorite over Vick Ballard to start the 2014 season as Trent Richardson's direct backup. Free agent Donald Brown will be moving on. Given Richardson's failures during his first year in Indy, Bradshaw should be a fairly popular handcuff if he wins that No. 2 gig.
