Giants release RB Ahmad Bradshaw and DT Chris Canty

After releasing linebacker Michael Boley yesterday, the Giants have released running back Ahmad Bradshaw and defensive tackle Chris Canty today.

Per Mike Garafolo of USA Today, the moves will save the Giants a total of $13.75 million towards the 2013 salary cap.

Bradshaw, who turns 27 in March, is one of the toughest running backs in the league, but he has dealt with nagging foot and ankle injuries throughout his career. In fact, he is currently recovering from foot surgery and expected to be sidelined into April.

"Pound for pound, Bradshaw is one of the toughest football players that I've been around," GM Jerry Reese said (via the team's website). "Ahmad played football like Giants football should be played."

Bradshaw finished the season with 1,015 yards, his second 1,000-yard season, and six touchdowns.

Now that Bradshaw his been released, David Wilson will get an opportunity to take a huge step forward in 2013. Though he was impressive in the offseason and preseason, he fumbled on his second regular-season carry and spent much time working his way out of coach Tom Coughlin's doghouse.

That was his only fumble of the season and he finished the year with 71 carries for 358 yards (5.04 yards per carry) and he was sixth in the NFL in kickoff return average (26.9 yards).
