Some more numbers on Ward

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

A few more numbers on running back Derrick Ward, who I mentioned as a possibility for Tampa Bay in the last post:

Most Yards Per Rush (2008 Season)

Derrick Ward: Yards Per Rush By Quarter in 2008

  • 1st: 3.9

  • 2nd: 5.5

  • 3rd: 4.6

  • 4th: 6.7

  • OT: 18.2

Again, I think there's a chance you could see the Bucs, who have more cap room to play with than anybody, make a run at Ward. Picture him paired with Earnest Graham. Could be interesting.
