Rams don't appear interested in Derrick Ward

There’s a good chance the Rams’ backup running back to Steven Jackson isn’t on the roster yet, but apparently Derrick Ward won’t be the guy.

Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo was in New York with Ward and called him during free agency 18 months ago.  But Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the team doesn’t still appear to be interested. 

The reason?  The eye in the sky doesn’t lie.

“Simply stated, Ward looks awful on tape,” Thomas said.  “One league
source said he looks almost disinterested.”

Someone is always watching.  And if the Rams aren’t interested, we doubt anyone will be watching Ward in an NFL uniform this year.

    So Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is a respected talent evaluator now?
    or is that a quote from “one league source”

    Another expert opinion from Rosenthal. Based on zero evidence.
    The stupidity that shines through in your writing is painful to read. Just painful.

    Ward wasn’t that good when he was interested…

    Maybe he can sign with the Saints, we need another person to bring our super bowl champions water!
    We DAT!

    hmm perhaps I’d take Jim Thomas more seriously if he knew the difference between “uninterested” and “disinterested”. Aren’t journalists supposed to know this stuff? jeez

    I know you are but what am I?
    You must be a packer fan.

    Nobody’s interested in Ward without the Beav.

    Of course he was disinterested… he was in Tampa.

    Yeah, cronn… making $4M/year isn’t enough to be interested. Tell me why Carnell Williams is the polar opposite – fighting back from TWO shredded knees to play for this team and this city.
    Friggin’ morons hanging from Florio’s jock of Buc-hate.

    Remember in the 2009 offseason when the Bengals brought in Ward when negotiations weren’t going well with Cedric Benson at the time? Thank God for the Bengals that Ced and his agent came around.

    When you get cut by the Bucs, that usually spells the end of it. True, tape doesn’t lie and Ward hasn’t done anything since he left the Giants, other than party down and go to the beach. He won’t be missed in Tampa. Even Chloe dumped him, he’s useless.
