Wait another week on Broncos DST


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Broncos revamped their defense after ranking 22nd in points allowed (22.9) and 19th in total yards (356.0).

They added defensive end DeMarcus Ware, safety T.J. Ward and cornerback Aqib Talib. They drafted corner Bradley Roby in the first round. And they'll benefit from Von Miller being in better shape.

Last year's No. 13 Fantasy DST should finish as a Top-10 unit this year. But the group might not mesh right away. And Sunday night's game against the Colts, with a whopping over/under of 55, is going to be a shootout.

Indy gave up the 11th-fewest Fantasy points to DSTs last year (7.56 per game). Sit the Broncos DST in Week 1, if you can, then start the unit Week 2 in a much more attractive matchup against Kansas City.


T.J. Ward to move around


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) New Broncos safety T.J. Ward will play some linebacker in sub packages, reports the team's website. He made 112 tackles last year and is a big hitter at 5-10, 200 pounds.

"I like to be everywhere," Ward said. "If it can change up my looks at different times and the offense doesn’t see me in one spot all the time, it definitely helps us help the defense and that’s what I want to do."


T.J. Ward accused of throwing mug at bartender


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) Broncos safety T.J. Ward appeared in court Friday to face an arrest warrant accusing him of misdemeanor assault and peace disturbance, reports the Denver Post.

According to a police report obtained by the Denver Post, the warrant was filed because Ward allegedly threw a glass mug at a female bartender who was working at strip club in the early morning hours of May 10.

The warrant was dismissed Friday, according to the Denver Post, because it was mistakenly issued by police. However, when Ward appeared in court on Friday, he was given a ticket and ordered to appear in court again on June 23. A $1,900 bond was also set for Ward.

T.J. Ward ready to hit open market


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) It sounds like Browns safety T.J. Ward will hit the open market. Ward's agent released this statement to the Akron Beacon Journal

“After receiving numerous requests from local and national media outlets, fans, and several others connected to the Cleveland community we felt it necessary to provide a statement with respect to T.J.’s current contract situation. Detailed contract discussions with multiple front office executives of the Browns began last month at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Since then several conversations have occurred in an attempt to secure a new deal for T.J., but we’ve yet to agree on terms that work for both sides.”

The agent, Josh Arnold, said Ward is open to further talks with the Browns.


Oregon connection could help Eagles land top safety


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) The Eagles, who need a safety, got good news when neither the Bills' Jairus Byrd nor the Browns' T.J. Ward got franchised. Both still could re-sign with their current teams. It's more likely they test the market.

Both are 27-year-old Oregon products who were second-team all-pros last season, Philly.com notes. Eagles coach Chip Kelly was Oregon's offensive coordinator during Byrd's last two seasons with the Ducks, and Kelly was head coach for Ward's senior season.

"Oh, I’m familiar with coach [Chip] Kelly and I know they're headed in the right direction," Byrd told ESPN.

"It's just good to know who we're working with now," he told the team website. "The sooner, the better, so we can get to work and start with a new system. I'm excited and eager to get ready. We've got a good nucleus of players, and I'm just ready to get to work.

"Defensive-minded coaches always have a special place with me being a defensive guy, but I'm very excited to meet him and get going."

Ward is coming off his healthiest and finest season. He registered 112 tackles, two interceptions and his first career pick-six.
