Former Bucs running back, Derrick Ward, has signed a 1 year deal with the Houston Texans. Ward, who was excellent with the Giants before signing with Tampa before last season, provides depth behind starter Arian Foster and with Steve Slaton a little knicked up, could be a very solid addition to the mix at tailback.
Ward only started one game last year for Tampa and in 14 total games recorded 559 total yards and 3 TDs on offense. With the Giants in 2008, he played in all 16 games, starting 3 and ran for 1,025 yards and 2 TD while also hauling in 384 yards receiving.
I really like this move, as it really cannot hurt us.
