T.J. Ward feels bad Gronkowski was hurt on low hit, but 'that's about it'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) Broncos safety T.J. Ward might hear a chorus of boos reign down in his direction during Sunday's game at New England, and that's because Ward was the player responsible for sending Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to injured reserve last season.

Ward, who was playing for the Browns last season, ended Gronkowski's season in Week 14 last season with a helmet-to-knee hit that tore Gronkowski’s right ACL and MCL. Ward said he has no regrets about the play and wasn’t purposely trying to take out Gronkowski’s knee, per The Boston Globe.

"I feel bad he got hurt, you know, but that’s about it," Ward said Wednesday. "I’m just playing fast out there, and coincidentally, it was a bang-bang play. I think if he wouldn’t have gotten hurt, then it wouldn’t be an issue."

Ward, who is seven inches shorter and 65 pounds lighter than Gronkowski, said the only way to tackle Gronkowski is by going low.

"Gronk’s a big dude. He gets hit, and he keeps going. Guys bounce off him, and he’s throwing guys left and right," Ward said. "I was taught that if you can take a guy’s wheels away from him, he’s no longer mobile, and that’s what you’ve got to do with big guys. I’m not going to go in there and bang heads with somebody that’s 60 pounds more than me. I’m going to hurt myself."


Wait another week on Broncos DST


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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."

by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

T.J. Ward ready to hit open market


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst

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.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"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.
