BRONCOS AGREE TO TERMS WITH UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENT S T.J. WARD

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— The Denver Broncos on Tuesday agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent safety T.J. Ward, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.

“We are excited to add T.J. Ward to the Denver Broncos,” Elway said. “He’s a young, explosive strong safety who is going to bring a lot of energy and toughness to our secondary.”

Ward (5-10, 200 pounds) is a fifth-year player who started all 54 games he appeared in during his first four seasons with Cleveland after being selected by the club in the second round (38th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft from the University of Oregon. His career totals include 340 tackles (253 solo), five interceptions (133 yds.), 3.5 sacks (29 yds.), 26 passes defensed, five forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and two defensive touchdowns (INT, FR).

In 2013, Ward registered a career-high 129 tackles (96 solo), and matched his career best with two interceptions (57 yds.) to earn his first career Pro Bowl selection and second-team All-Pro honors from the Associated Press. He also was voted by his teammates as the recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award after starting all 16 games for the Browns following a knee injury late in the 2012 season.

Ward led all NFL rookies with 105 tackles in 2010 as a 16-game starter. He went on to open all eight games played in 2011 while helping the Browns finish second in pass defense (184.9 ypg).

An all-Pacific-10 Conference performer at Oregon, Ward played 37 career games for the Ducks and totaled 190 tackles and three interceptions.

He attended De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif., and was born on Dec. 12, 1986.
