Derrick Ward thanks Bucs, says Tampa Bay experience was "great"



Coach Raheem Morris indicated in his press conference today that Derrick Ward handled his release like a professional, and that attitude was reflected in an email response from Ward to the St. Petersburg Times.

Just hours after his release today, Ward wrote the following: 

"My experience with the Bucs was a great one. I have nothing but the utmost respect for Rah (Raheem) and Mark (Dominik) and I hope this season goes well for them. Although it's tough to think that I'm not a Buc any more, I'm excited to see what else is out there for me. I still believe in my abilities and am looking forward to the next chapter of my football career."
