Derrick Ward re-signs with Giants

Derrick Ward has re-signed with the Giants.

The price was cheap enough. Ward has been injured a lot, and while he did a good job when healthy, Rob points out that Ward could never break that tackle which sent him to a long gain. If he got past the line of scrimmage, he was ALWAYS going down for a gain of 8-9 yards. While there is nothing wrong with an 8 yard gain, in the open field you have to be able to go for a 30-50 yarder some of the time, something Bradshaw and Jacobs have proven they are able to do. With Ward’s salary very modest, it is the right thing to do for the team… but I certainly want to see BRADSHAW getting the bulk of the carries going forward. If Ward’s presence interferes with Bradshaw’s touches, then this signing is going to end up costing us more than the insurance is worth.
