Steelers interested in Bradshaw: Free agent running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been shopping his wares of late and seems to have found quite a bit of interest in Pittsburgh. The former Giant took a physical for the Steelers and even though he left the Steel City without a deal, the team remains interested. The move would be a fit for both sides. Bradshaw is no longer able to be a three-down back while the Steelers need additional help in their backfield. Pair the two together and the veteran runner has the makings of a nice flex option in most leagues.
Sanchez studies with Garcia: Perhaps knowing that his hold on the New York Jets starting job is tenuous, quarterback Mark Sanchez has enlisted the help of former NFL QB Jeff Garcia to help with learning new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg’s offense. Garcia had his most productive NFL season playing under Mornhinweg with the San Francisco 49ers in 2000, throwing for a career-high 4,278 yards and 31 touchdowns. After a disastrous 2012, we’re in favor of anything that can help Sanchez get better. But we still don’t see him as anything more than a low No. 2 fantasy option.
Chiefs to add spread-option elements: In a copycat league, consider the Kansas City Chiefs the latest copycat. Coach Andy Reid has hired Brad Childress as “Spread Game Analyst/Special Projects” — which is a fancy way of saying Childress will help Alex Smith and the offense run elements of the spread. Smith is an athletic quarterback, so anything that will force defenses to respect his ability to run is a plus.
