He should keep himself in shape. Injuries happen, and you never know who might call.

Well, I'm happy for the guy. He got out while he was still in good health. I enjoyed him while he was here.

Same impression. Somehow, I think he will see action somewhere before the season is over. Otherwise, I believe there are quite a few teams out there that will have made a mistake ruling him out.

I hope we're not one of them. I wonder if it's that the offers were too low in his opinion. Seems like it would be worth it to make a little over vet minimum to be a back up and save your body, but maybe he's got what he needs and its not about the money for him.

That's what I'm thinking. 8 years in the league. If he invested wisely and didn't support his posse then Derrick should have enough to live through retirement comfortably.

He doesn't sound worried. Good on him.

Thanks Derrick Ward.

Sounds like someone invested their money correctly and didn't have to ride out years of being a 3rd string and or being brought in and cut as camp fodder.

I liked Ward but I think everybody who's given any thought to the Texans offense knows that if we find ourselves in a position where we really miss Ward, we're most likely already dead in the water and he'll probably still be available to sign cheap at the time.

Count me in this camp. I thought - still think - he can bring value and veteran presence to a young team trying to get their act together. And he knows how to get himself into the endzone.

But, at the end of the day, it's his call. So I appreciate his contributions to our squad and wish him well if he's truly hanging up his shoulder pads.
Best wishes D.W.
