Derrick Ward Becomes Second 1000-yard Back-Up In Houston

The release of Derrick Ward for mostly frugal reasons is now going to reap benefits for the Houston Texans. According to both the Houston Chronicle’s Bob McClain and ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Derrick Ward has joined Houston.

It remains to be seen how Arian Foster will respond to having the starting job, but there’s no denying how powerful this offense can be if they run-block a little better than last year. They have three running backs all entering their prime, all without a lot of tread on the tires. Some saw Slaton returning kickoffs last night as a sign Kubiak dislikes him but Slaton remained extremely strong, 44 catches and 417 yards for 4 scores strong, in receiving last year. Slaton is age 24, Foster turns 24 later this month, and Ward is 30.

    Good. If Houston wants him, they can have him. I’m just glad the Bucs got rid of his sorry a$$.
