Giants claimed LB Allen Bradford off waivers from the Seahawks.

The Giants are short on linebacker depth, but Bradford shouldn't contribute outside of special teams. Bradford can also play running back, but there's been no indication that's what he was claimed as.

Seahawks waived LB Allen Bradford.

Bradford was promoted from the practice squad last December. He made the team out of camp and played on special teams in Week 1. Bradford's roster spot was needed for TE Kellen Davis, who was signed on Wednesday.

Seahawks promoted LB Allen Bradford from their practice squad and waived DT Hebron Fangupo.

Bradford is needed for Week 17 because WLB Leroy Hill is banged up. Fangupo had a brief stay on the roster and will likely revert to the practice squad.

The Seahawks have moved Allen Bradford from running back to linebacker.

Bradford was a five-star linebacker recruit out of high school, but Pete Carroll's USC staff quickly moved him to tailback. Bradford was drafted in the sixth round by Tampa Bay in 2011, but saw only five carries before being waived and claimed by his old coach. Special teams are his best shot at a roster spot.

Seahawks signed RB Allen Bradford, TE John Nalbone, CB Coye Francies, DE John Graves, C Brent Osborne and S Jesse Hoffman to reserve/future contracts.

Bradford broke camp with the Bucs, but was limited to just one game and five carries despite a wave of injuries behind LeGarrette Blount in Tampa's backfield. Nalbone made two appearances for the Dolphins in 2010, but has zero career catches. Osborne, Hoffman, Graves and Francies are roster fillers.

Seahawks waived RB Allen Bradford.

He lasted five days on the roster. It's not a great sign for Bradford, who was recruited in college by Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. The team could also be trying to sneak Bradford through waivers and onto the practice squad.

Seahawks claimed RB Allen Bradford off waivers from the Bucs.

The Bucs had hoped to sneak Bradford through waivers and onto the practice squad, but his old college coach, Pete Carroll, snapped him up. Bradford is a power back prospect at 5-foot-11, 242. The sixth-round pick out of USC managed just a 2.0 preseason YPC. He had 13 yards on five carries in Week 5.

Bucs waived RB Allen Bradford.

A highly surprising move since it was revealed Thursday that LeGarrette Blount's knee sprain could sideline him for the next two weeks. It's quite possible the Bucs are clearing a roster spot for a veteran running back. A sixth-round pick, Bradford will be signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Bucs declared RB Allen Bradford, CB Anthony Gaitor, OT Demar Dotson, OT James Lee, FS Larry Asante, CB Myron Lewis, and WR Sammie Stroughter inactive for Week 2 against the Vikings.

The Bucs' three game-day backs are LeGarrette Blount, Earnest Graham, and Kregg Lumpkin. Look for Dezmon Briscoe to get a snaps bump with Stroughter out indefinitely after foot surgery, and Arrelious Benn coming off a rough opener.

Bucs declared RB Allen Bradford, TE Zach Pianalto, T Demar Dotson, G Derek Hardman, CB Myron Lewis, CB Anthony Gaitor and S Larry Asante inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.

No surprises for the Bucs, who enter Week 1 as one of the healthier teams in the league. Both Earnest Graham and Kregg Lumpkin are active as complements to LeGarrette Blount. Aqib Talib is set to shadow Calvin Johnson while Ronde Barber monitors Nate Burleson.

No. 187 overall pick RB Allen Bradford is eager to fill a special teams role for the Bucs.

At least Bradford has a realistic view of his potential role. Even if Earnest Graham is released, the one-dimensional Bradford would only spell LeGarrette Blount in short-yardage as a best-case scenario.
Mon, May 23, 2011 12:14:00 PM

Buccaneers selected USC RB Allen Bradford with the No. 187 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Bradford is a load at 5-foot-11, 242 pounds, but is a one-dimensional back, lacking NFL agility or receiving skills. If he has a future with the Bucs, it will be as a short-yardage battering ram.
