Former Giants and Texans RB Derrick Ward announced his retirement on Twitter on Tuesday.

“To all my fans just wanted to let u know its been a great ride the last 9yrs but I’m calling it a career. I thank u all for believing in me!” he wrote.

Ward did not get re-signed this offseason after the Texans added free-agent RB Justin Forsett.

In 2011, Ward had 45 carries for 154 yards and two touchdowns for Houston in 12 games. He played in all 16 games in 2010 and had 315 yards rushing and four touchdowns.

Ward’s best season came in 2008 with the Giants. He carried the ball 182 times for 1,025 yards and two touchdowns, adding 41 catches for 384 yards. Ward, 31, entered the league with the Giants in 2004. He rushed for 409 yards for the Buccaneers in 2009 before heading to the Texans.

Ward finishes his career with 2,628 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns.
