DJ Ware Signs His Tender

Via PFT – look how they chose to sum this one up:

Players designated as exclusive-rights free agents can hardly even be described as free agents at all, seeing as they have zero opportunity to shop themselves around. Ultimately, exclusive-rights free agents are basically stuck with signing their tender offers, and that’s what one such player, Giants running back Danny “DJ” Ware, has done.

A league source tells PFT that Ware signed his tender today. Ware is a three-year veteran who started to get a little bit of playing time in 2009, picking up 73 yards on 13 carries and scoring the Giants’ only touchdown in their debacle of a season finale, a 44-7 loss to the Vikings.

Now, this might be splitting hairs but when I think of the word veteran – DJ Ware is not the guy that comes to mind.  These guys are Giants veterans in my humble opinion:

Don’t misunderstand — I like Danny Ware, but he has so little playing time and has so much room to grow that I think the term veteran in this case is borderline misused to describe his role on the team.  Can you say 3rd year rookie and not have it sound bad?

Forgive me if this comes off as insulting — not my intention.  I guess I’m trying to hard too make this tid-bitty piece of  “news” worthy of the title “news”.  Its more of a language objection than anything… but … oh well.

Mission aborted. Good day, all.

    Agree, and one opportunity he fumbles and stumbles then again Tiki Barber did nothing out of the gate
