Derrick Ward joins the Texans

With rookie second-rounder Ben Tate done for the year and veteran Derrick Ward suddenly available, the Houston Texans got Ward in the door -- and they didn’t let him go.

Ward has agreed to terms with the Texans on a one-year deal, per a league source.

Two years removed from a 1,000-yard season as part of the Earth, Wind, and Fire backfield in New York, Ward now joins Arian Foster and Steve Slaton as the top trio in Houston.

The Seahawks were believed to be interested in Ward. The Broncos undoubtedly became interested after losing LenDale White last night.
