Derrick Ward’s Working On His Tan

March 5th, 2009

New Bucs running back Derrick Ward talked to Ron Diaz and Ian Beckles this morning on 620 WDAE-AM, The Sports Animal. 

Nothing too enlightening from Ward. He really seems like a guy who wanted to be in Tampa and is grateful to be here.

Some quotes:

  • “I fell in love with the place during a Super Bowl week.”
  • “When you run the ball it opens up everything else.  We’re going to run the ball.”
  • On Raheem Morris: “He’s all about winning. He said to me, ‘Let’s go win a Super Bowl together.’ That’s my mentality. That’s his mentality. That’s what we’re going to do.”
  • “[Who will play quarterback was a factor in his decision.]I have all the confidence in the world in whoever is in place. …Luke [McCown’s] a tremendous athlete, but he’s unproven. …”
  • “[The Bucs offensive line] reminds him of younger line in New York.”
  • “[For fun] I work on my tan. Catch back up on some sleep. Work out. I love the beach and the water. …My house is right on the water. It’s beautiful.”
