Giants' backfield outlook

UPDATE: Well, it seems that the Giants have simply ripped the proverbial band-aid off. Per ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Giants have released Ahmad Bradshaw. This should open the door wide for David Wilson to bust loose for fantasy teams next season. Bradshaw's future may not be decided for several months, after he proves himself to be healthy. His most recent foot surgery is expected to sideline him for a couple of months.

The New York Giants are projected to be $4.7 million over the salary cap, so they are going to have some difficult decisions to make regarding free agents like O-linemen Will Beatty and Kevin Boothe. ESPNNewYork.com's Ohm Youngmisuk thinks that the Giants "need to re-sign Beatty" and "are expected to bring [RB Andre Brown] back" as a restricted free agent.
