Ward on his way to being the feature back in 2010?

The Tampa Tribune reports today that Derrick Ward may end up as the teams feature running back in 2010:

Buccaneers running back Derrick Ward, a targeted free agent from the Giants, averaged seven rushes per game and only 3.6 yards per carry, a shocking drop from the 5.6 average he sported with New York in 2008. By midway through the season, Ward stopped talking, waving the media away from his locker, he was likely worried he would reveal his frustrations by blurting out something negative about the organization that wanted him so much a year ago. Ira Kaufman of The Tampa Tribune thinks Ward will be the featured back the second time around, the Bucs guaranteed him $6 million last year and ownership would like to see more impact for that degree of commitment.
