Texans Sign Free Agent RB Derrick Ward

The Houston Texans signed veteran running back Derrick Ward Friday as insurance in the backfield according to the NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora.

The 30-year-old has played six seasons in the NFL, most recently with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.

Ward’s most productive season was in 2008 as a backup to Brandon Jacobs with the New York Giants when he gained 1,409 yards from scrimmage even though he started just three games.
