For the running back, it was an opportunity to win two Super Bowls with the team that drafted him. For the defensive tackle, it doesn’t get much better than hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in his hometown.
While Bradshaw will be remembered for his go-ahead touchdown with 57 seconds remaining in Super Bowl XLVI, it was whom he did it with that stands out for the 26-year-old.
“It’s one thing with the Giants, they just have one of the greatest organizations and I can vouch for that,” Bradshaw told WFAN’s Mike Francesa. “So, like I say, I’m definitely going to remember the guys I did it with – not only just the moments I had individually — but it was a blast.”
Meanwhile, wherever Canty takes his career, the Bronx native relished his time with the New York fans.
“I’m just thankful for the opportunity when I came here in 2009 to join this organization and play in my hometown and win a Super Bowl here,” Canty said on ESPN’s “The Michael Kay Show” on Wednesday. “And it’s a great city, great fans, it was a great experience.”
He added: “New York will always be home. New York will always be home for me. This is where it all started for me. It was a great opportunity for me to play here, I won a championship here, so New York will always be [home].”
