Ware looking to keep role as Giants backup RB
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) D.J. Ware has no intention of making things easy for New York Giants first-round draft pick David Wilson.
After five seasons of being mostly the third running back on the depth chart, Ware believes his time is now. He has put in the hours and the work and, with Brandon Jacobs playing in San Francisco, the job of sharing the running back job with Ahmad Bradshaw should be his.
Wilson is in the way, though, and Ware knows it.
The Super Bowl champions didn't use their top pick in the draft to watch him stand on the sideline. Wilson also has shown amazing moves and speed in the opening weeks of training camp.
Ware, however, was just as impressive in the Giants 32-31 preseason loss to Jacksonville on Friday.
