Ware averaged 2.78 yards after contact last season, which would’ve ranked 28th out of 61 running backs if he had enough carries to qualify. He also forced nine missed tackles on just 51 rush attempts and forced six missed tackles on 21 receptions. Having just turned 27 years old, Ware can be a good change-of-pace back who is tough to bring down.
