Derrick Ward, Anybody?

Anybody want Derrick Ward back?

From the sounds of things in Tampa Bay, Ward might be looking for work soon.

[Coach Raheem] Morris says veteran running back Derrick Ward is out of shape, and he says that if Ward is unhappy with his place on the depth chart, that's his problem.

"In '09 we weren't a very good football team. We weren't a very good organized football team as far as our running game. We all struggled," Morris said. "He was a guy that was a part of it. He went out there and he probably didn't get the holes that he wanted. Whatever the reasons were - nobody cares. It is your job to go out there and get it done. That is the same thing I'd tell Sabby. He feels bad about not being a starter. He feels bad because he feels like he was unjustly done, and nobody really cares."

Personally, I don't care what Ward did for the Giants in the past. The shelf life for running backs in the NFL is short. Ward is now 30, averaged just 3.6 yards per carry last season and is apparently not in shape. Even if he gets cut, I'd rather see the Giants stick with Andre Brown. Though I guess you could make an argument that Ward would be an improvement over D.J. Ware or Gartrell Johnson.
