Cut earlier this week by the Bucs only a year after signing with them, running back Derrick Ward will commence his search for a new team.
And while some Giants fans are hoping that he’ll return to Big Blue, the process begins with Ward visiting the Houston Texans.
A league source tells us that Ward will go to Houston today, and that he possibly could visit the Seahawks.
Ward would diversify a Texans’ backfield that lost rookie running back Ben Tate for the season. If he signs there, he’d likely share touches with Arian Foster and Steve Slaton.
It’s unclear how Ward would fit in Seattle, and it’s possible that someone currently occupying a spot on the depth chart that he assumed would be safe could be jettisoned.
