After he was cut from the Denver Broncos early Saturday, All-Pro safety TJ Ward has reportedly signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
The move wasn’t much of a surprise considering the Broncos had tried shopping Ward, 30, via trade earlier in the week. Denver would have owed a $4.5 million non-guaranteed base salary and $5.75 million cap number if it kept the safety this season.
Ward was a three-time Pro Bowler from 2013-15, as well as a second-team All-Pro in 2013. He won the Super Bowl with the Broncos in 2016.
