I have always admired this guy for not being a "me first" kind of guy, but consistently going out there and getting the job done.
Ward, 29, does not necessarily want to be the highest-paid receiver in the game but wants to be among them, according to a source close to him. Ward will earn a salary of $1,668,750 this season -- the same as '04
Although, I hate the other "whiney" WRs that threaten holdouts, etc. I am on Wards side on this. I don't want him to miss any time, but he has been waiting for more money for a while, and the ownership wont listen to him otherwise.
The NFL needs more of these guys who are not in-your-face, cocky, me-first guys.
