After a February attempt to lure LaDainian Tomlinson out of retirement, the Chargers have since added Danny Woodhead and re-signed Ronnie Brown to another contract. The Bolts also have Edwin Baker and Fozzy Whittaker on the roster. That may lead some to believe that the team is set at running back for the 2013 season.
I’m not so sure that is the case.
Tom Telesco has made it clear through both his actions and his words that he is willing to do whatever it takes to improve this roster. He showed this by not overspending in free agency and his selecting of the best player available mantra during the draft.
So I bring to you an acquisition that was brought to me by Jason Ciano (@Cianochess of Twitter and diehard #BoltFam member).
Should the Chargers consider bringing in Ahmad Bradshaw via free agency? My opinion is that will not be necessary. But I can easily see why it might be a good fit. Evan Silva of Rotoworld seems to think the same when he wrote that Tampa Bay and San Diego could be possible destinations for the injury prone Bradshaw.
My reasoning behind not bringing in Bradshaw is as I just mentioned. Despite the fact that he is very effective when healthy, how often is he healthy? Not often enough for me. The Chargers currently have more than enough players with injury-laden pasts.
That being said, I’d like the fans to throw their opinions into the ring. Below is a poll. Place your vote and tell us why, or why not, San Diego should sign Ahmad Bradshaw.
Thanks a lot for reading and voting. I look forward to seeing how this one plays out.
