Derrick Ward Signs with Bucs


Recommended Posts

Profootballtalk.com reports that free agent Derrick Ward has signed a four-year, $17 million contract with the Bucs.

Ward is reportedly guaranteed $6 million and has picked Tampa over offers from Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and the Giants. Ward's market wasn't near what he and agent Drew Rosenhaus had hoped, as they began free agency seeking $34.5 million over six years. This positions Ahmad Bradshaw to be the Giants' No. 2 back, although he'll face some competition from Danny Ware.

Apparently the Giants enjoy filling their backup RB spots from our practice squad. Meanwhile the Jets prefer to just not ever have a 3rd RB worthy of receiving a single carry on the active roster.

Hasn't failed us yet.

I think with Rex Ryan in house that will change. Either Jehhu Caulcrick will be on the active roster as the 3 / back-up FB or he will sign a veteran or possibly draft someone on Day 2.
