Free agent RB Derrick Ward announced his retirement from football on Tuesday.
Perhaps best known for his role in the Giants' Earth, Wind and Fire backfield of 2008, Ward parlayed a career-year of 1,025 rushing yards into a four-year, $17 million contract with the Bucs a couple of months later. After washing out in Tampa as a free-agent bust, Ward enjoyed a solid bounce-back season as Arian Foster's backup in Houston only to be bypassed by Ben Tate in 2011. Ward closes out his nine-year career with 2,628 rushing yards and a stout average of 4.8 yards on 551 carries. Tue, Jul 3, 2012 04:13:00 PM
