  • Bucs sign Derrick Ward

    Per a league source, Ward has agreed to terms on a four-year, $17 million deal.

    He’ll earn $6 million guaranteed in the first year, $9.25 million over the first two, and $13 million over the first three.

    Yay we finally signed someone. Didn't he want a Michael Turner type deal? Looks like we got him for about half that.

          The Giants actually turned down Ward for $3 million a season.

            I really like this signing. Knocks off another need for the draft and moves us closer to the salary floor. Now we need to get crowell.

              Solid signing. A great safety net in case Cadillac isn't ready to go which is a high possibility. Hopefully he forms a nice 1-2-3 punch with Caddy and Earnest Graham.

                Well, this signing really puts the pressure of Cincinnati to bring back Cedric Benson. Not all too happy to see Ward slip away, as I think he will be a good starting RB. In Tampa Bay, though, he can platoon with Ernest Graham. Good pick-up for the Bucs and typical Bengals...

                big props to BoneKrusher for the sig & avatar

                  How the hell is that gonna work out? One of the 3 is gonna get the short end of the stick. That's what I think.

                  Or 2 of the 3 will get injured and we'll be onto our 3rd stringer, like when we discovered Graham.

                      Yeah because we are high on Bradshaw and Ware. Worse comes to worse we draft a rookie as well. It would beyond foolish to have brought Ward back and pay that much for him.

                        Well didn't Tuner get a 6 or 7 year deal? Still nice deal but I don't think he had any where close to the value Turner had in the eyes of teams around the NFL.

                          We didn't even take him back for three mil per, that should tell you how confident the staff is in Bradshaw, Ware and the offensive line covering up for his loss. Plus with us having plugged our holes at LB and DT there's still a good chance we take a RB in the draft.

                            So is Cadillac officially a bust because of injuries or something?
