DE Jihad Ward.....available?


Recommended Posts

Falcoholic article lists Ward as a possible FA signing prospect for the Falcons.  Thing is, I don't see him listed anywhere as a free agent.   Other than his background info, last I see of him is on the Colts' roster.

Anyone know if Ward is available?  If so is he a decent prospect to bring in to replace Means?  (I think he might be....)

Ward is interesting.  2nd round pick of the Raiders.  Played there for a bit, had a foot injury that sidelined him.  Appears to be someone who got lost in the shuffle when Gruden arrived.   Falcoholic article listed Ward as being an available FA.

The guy has been in the league since 2015.  He has the measurable, can play DE or DT.  In fact Ward -appears- to be comparable to Bailey, only less accomplished.  Ward is 25, his last contract was below one million per year.

Players his age and experience, a lot of times they are just 'coming into their own' as players.  Between Jess Simpson and Quinn, if there's anything to Ward, they might bring it out of him.
