The New York Giants had been scheduled to visit with free agent running back Kahlil Bell on Tuesday, but he opted to sign with the New York Jets prior to his workout with Big Blue. However, that didn't stop the Giants from hosting at least one other running back, as Joseph Addai made an appearance at the TIMEX Performance Center and conducted a private workout with the team.
Having Addai in and Bell scheduled could be nothing more than General Manager Jerry Reese doing his due diligence, but it could also indicate that the Giants are concerned with the health of Ahmad Bradshaw, who is dealing with both a neck injury and a foot injury.
Following a 31-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Bradshaw was taken for X-rays, and head coach Tom Coughlin later said that he would undergo several more tests throughout the week.
"He'll probably have every test known to man here in the next couple of days," Coughlin said on Monday. "We have a big medical day with our players. Today and tomorrow, they will be visiting the hospital and getting MRIs and whatever."
Addai, a first-round pick of the Indianapolis Colts in 2006, has had a successful NFL career, rushing for over 1,000 yards twice (2006 & 2007). In recent years however, Addai has been dealing with a wide range of injuries of his own, which eventually led to the Colts releasing him in March. He was promptly signed by the New England Patriots, but again released in May.
He left East Rutherford on Tuesday without a contract.
