Derrick Ward looking for Michael Turner money

The Denver Post suggests that Derrick Ward should lower his asking price. We had assumed that Ward's original demand was somewhere near the four-year, $25 million with $13 million guaranteed, deal between the New York Giants and Brandon Jacobs.

Ward is looking for something similar to what a running back received, but not Jacobs. Michael Turner received a six-year $34.5 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons last season; $15 million of it guaranteed. The Denver Post writes that "Ward was seeking a deal similar" to what Turner received.

Also interesting was that the Post writes that Ward had a visit with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, Bleeding Green Nation denies this. We also learned that the deal with J.J. Arrington's deal with the Broncos could be threatened because of contract language, potentially killing the deal.
