D.J. Ware Signs New Contract With Giants

The New York Giants announced this afternoon that reserve running back D.J. Ware has signed a two-year contract extension. Ware is entering his fifth season with the Giants. In 2010, Ware played in 14 games and had a team-high 20.6-yard average on 21 kickoff returns. Ware finished third on the team with 73 rushing yards on a career-high 30 attempts. He also had seven receptions for 67 yards.

Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily reports via Twitter that it is an incentive-laden two-year deal worth about $2 million.

This is mildly surprising to me. Ware has been a Giant since 2007, and really as done very little. Of course, the contract is a relatively inexpensive one and the way the NFL works you have to understand that this does not mean Ware will be a part of the team in 2011 -- if there is a 2011 season.

Really this just seems like the Giants protecting themselves because of the uncertainty of who will be available in the draft and what might happen with the labor situation.
