Ty Law returns

As the Denver Broncos attempt to continue to build upon an unexpectedly strong start to the season, they’re getting some help from one of the better cornerbacks of the past two decades.

Ty Law.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Law has reached an agreement in principle with the Broncos. 

Law confirmed the news directly to Schefter.

Next step?  Schefter reports that Law is on his way to Denver to take a physical.  If he passes, he’ll be back in the NFL, on a team that has a chance to make some noise in the postseason.

After ten seasons with the Patriots, Law spent 2005 with the Jets, 2006 and 2007 with the Chiefs, and 2008 with the Jets.  His 52 career interceptions put him only two more pickoffs out of the all-time top 20.

The only active player in the top 20 is Darren Sharper of the Saints.  With 61, he’s only three away from cracking the all-time top five.

    Chiefs not Patriots in 2006 and 2007.

    umm, this is incorrect. he spent 2006 and 2007 w/ the chiefs.
    get a fact checker.

  3. Maybe he can use his walker to knock down passes? Seriously, I don’t know if he can still be effective but if the answer is yes, it would be great to get the help.

  4. Ty Law spent ’06 & ’07 with the Chiefs, not Patriots.
    Its funny that every time NE signed an aging vet Broncos fans would laugh and call the Patriots old and slow.
    Now that Denver has signed Ty Law their fans are celebrating for the added depth and veteran leadership.
    Go figure.

  5. What do they need him for ? was that a block or do they have a hole I haven’t heard about ? – Hap
    The early returns on Alphonso Smith and second year player Jack Williams haven’t been spectacular. Granted, they are both young and learning a new scheme. But my guess is that they are just trying to beef up a secondary that has a mix of vets and young dudes.
    In a pinch I bet you could even ask Law to play some Safety.

  6. @ WTE: We are not celebrating. We are wondering what the “F” is going on. This is a strange move.

  7. Sharper will crack the top 5 all time this year and should take over the all time lead in the pick six category as well before he is done. He is having an MVP type of year.

  8. How many f’n people does it take to tell Florio Law was with the Chiefs instead of the Pats? Jeez, a little overkill maybe?
    I guess Baltimore exposed something in our 4th cb (Jack Williams?)that the coaches didnt like, or something like that. Hopefully it wasn’t the Phonz stinking it up since we gave away 2010s first rounder for him!

  9. geez, Hope the guy dropped some weight…saw him in Miami a few months ago..and he looked more like a fullback than DB

  10. Ty thinks this is the best place for him and is alreadypacking his bags…. and he won’t even need to take his Cousin’s bag this time…
    He’s now just miles from Boulder where he knows they have some very fine ecstasy.

    He is the same age as Dawkins?
    Also, sometimes you bring people in to be leaders so they can guide guys like Smith and Williams.
    You’re so clever with the old jokes.

    Funny how you just made this up. What aging vets have the Pats signed that have turned out productive or healthy?
    Plus on the bronks on old FA and Trades:
    Lynch
    Dawk
    Wiegmann
    Jordan
    Rice
    Sauerbrun
    Berger
    Hill
    Bly
    Niel Smith
    god i could go forever, and this is only from like the past 10 years.
    nice try tho. Its funny how everytime you leave a comment, you make stuff up.

  13. when he played in kc, it was like a slow motion train wreck every pass play to his side. this will only hurt denver. law should be a coach at this point.

  14. Ty was great here in New England, but last I saw of him he was packing a ton of extra pounds. One has to wonder too just how much he’s got left in the tank.

  15. Will always love this guy for that 47 int return for a TD in Super Bowl XXXVI. That was huge and without it, this dynasty may never have gotten started. And big ups to Mike Vrabel for face slapping Warner into that lame toss.
    And of course, Law owned Manning in some key playoff games. Oh, and he played for Michigan in college. Go Blue!
    I’ll never get tired of watching him. Just sucks he’s not wearing a Flying Elvis.
    Good luck, Ty!
    Go Pats!

  16. So is he a nickel corner or will he finally make his long-promised switch to safety to close out his career?

  17. I’m guessing he’ll be used more like a S. J. Barrett, the Broncos TE specialist, has hammy issues and is probably IR bound. 35 year olds don’t generally make good nickle corners. Or, Goodman will kick inside in nickle packages and Law will be a boundary corner on the right side…
    Just a guess.
