After being waived on Friday, it took running back D.J. Ware only 24 hours to find a new home. The former New York Giants running back and two-time Super Bowl champion signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday, reuniting with former Big Blue quarterback coach Mike Sullivan – now the offensive coordinator in Tampa.
Mike Garafolo of The Star-Ledger reports that upwards of five teams were immediately interested in signing Ware, but he whittled it down to the Bucs, Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks before ultimately signing with Tampa Bay. The lower tax rate in Florida allegedly factored into his decision.
In addition to Ware and Sullivan, the Buccaneers also signed former Giants offensive tackle Jamon Meredith this offseason.
The trio will find their way back to East Rutherford in week two, as the Giants host the Buccaneers on Sunday, September 16th at MetLife Stadium.
