RB Ward on Bucs' o-line: 'They're some maulers'



Running back Derrick Ward, who signed a free-agent deal with the Bucs this spring after a breakout season with the Giants, said his offensive line in Tampa Bay is more physical than the guys who blocked for him in New York.

"I don't like to compare lines," Ward said Wednesday, "but this line I have here, they're going to be a force to be reckoned with, hands down. They're some maulers. Up in New York, they're kind of finesse. They can maul you, but they're more finesse. These guys, they like to get their pants dirty. It's going to be fun to play behind them."
