Arrest Warrant Issued For Broncos’ T.J. Ward
The Denver Broncos signed former Cleveland Browns safety this off season to revamp their secondary, not get in the news for the wrong reasons. Unfortunately, the latter is exactly what has happened.
According to CBS 4 in Denver, an arrest warrant has been issued for Ward for misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace. The chargers reportedly stem from a May 9th incident at a Denver club. Ward was supposedly involved in some type of confrontation with another man, although no actual arrests were made at the time of the incident and no further details were provided via the latest report.
Police are still waiting for Ward to surrender, while the Broncos have publicly stated that they “have been aware” of the situation and “continue to review all facts”.
The rest is especially disturbing for the Broncos, considering they just handed Ward a big four-year, $23 million dollar deal to help improve a shaky pass defense. While it’s a disappointment, it’s worth noting this is the first official run in with the law Ward has had in his NFL career.
Ward was part of a major free agency hall on the defensive side of the football for the Broncos, as he joined big names like DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib.
Probably best known for his big hit that ended Rob Gronkowski’s season in 2013, Ward was easily one of the top level safeties available on the open market this off season.
Ward enjoyed arguably his best season of his career during the 2013 NFL season, when he racked up 113 total tackles, a career high two sacks, two interceptions and his first ever touchdown return on defense. He brings five career interceptions to the table, while his tenacity and reliability should help make an improving Denver defense even better.
