Two prominent former Marshall University football stars are still looking for work. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw and wide receiver Randy Moss are still looking for jobs as NFL training camp heads into week two.
Coming off a stealer season with the New York Giants Bradshaw figured to sign early during free agency. Most NFL pundits thought Bradshaw was a lock to rejoin the Giants but many New York fans are growing restless as he remains unsigned. Yesterday it was reported that the Washington Redskins were interested in Bradshaw’s services. Late Sunday evening the Redskins completed a trade for running back Tim Hightower, formerly of the Arizona Cardinals. The trade appears to take Washington out of the Bradshaw race.
It was also reported yesterday that Bradshaw would visit the Cincinnati Bengals. Shortly after that report surfaced Cincinnati resigned incumbent running back Cedric Benson. It is doubtful that Bradshaw is still in the Bengals plans after they resigned Benson.
Early this morning Dan Graziano of ESPN took a close look at Bradshaw’s remaining options, read his article here:
After his least productive season during a 13 year NFL career Randy Moss is also looking for employment. Early in free agency the New York Jets were rumored to be a landing spot for Moss. Yesterday, New York signed another veteran wide receiver Plaxico Burress, effectively taking them out of the Moss picture. According to various reports two other teams, the Baltimore Ravens and Philadelphia Eagles are interested in Moss for this upcoming season.
