T.J. Ward’s assault hearing delayed until August


Broncos safety T.J. Ward was scheduled for a hearing on assault charges on Tuesday in Denver, but a request from his attorney has led the court to delay the proceedings until August.

The Associated Press reports that Ward’s attorney Abraham Hutt asked the court for more time to review evidence he just received and a judge granted the request. Ward is now due back in court on August 4.

Ward faces misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace charges as a result of an incident at PT’s All Nude Club in Denver on May 10. Ward is accused of throwing a glass mug at a bartender during a dispute about whether or not Ward was drinking from a bottle he brought with him to the club and was asked to dispose of once inside.

The Broncos signed Ward to a four-year deal this offseason and the former Brown is expected to boost the team’s defense alongside fellow free agent acquisitions DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib. He’s also expected to avoid league discipline that would stop him from performing that role.

    When you’ve been on a losing side so long and then quickly join a SuperBowl contender, this is what happens. You get into trouble because you cant handle being in a winning culture.

    Ward is a dirty player.

    His cheap shot on Gronk’s knee is a perfect example.

    Wards hit on Gronk was clean. Gronk is much bigger and Ward can’t hit him in the head, what’s he supposed to do. He was probably going for his thigh. Just one of those unfortunate things.

    As for the usual ‘made of glass’ idiocy, that hit blows out anyone’s knee this side of Ironman.

    Biggest cheap shot artist in the league. I’m still waiting for him to be suspended for his illegal hit on Gronk’s knee. Throw him out of the league.

    Oh to be an NFL player and be above the laws of the land. Gödel should be proud of his NFL.

    Finally! Justice for Gronk after that Week 14 assault with a deadly weapon (helmet).

    I was even surprised TJ Ward was even in position to tackle Gronk. This guy takes the worst angles of any safety I’ve ever seen. Last year was his only decent year since he’s been in the league. If Denver thought they got ripped in the Super Bowl wait til teams exploit Ward with deep passes and RBS that get into the secondary.
