Broncos safety T.J. Ward, like so many of his current and former teammates, have become darlings of the media in the 37 days since winning the Super Bowl. On Monday, Ward passed along an anecdote that carried little or no inherent charm.
Appearing on ESPN’s Highly Questionable (via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post), Ward explained the on-field demeanor of teammate Derek Wolfe.
“His presence, he’s a dog on the field and he really doesn’t take any mess from any one. Having him there up front, he set the tone for us,” Ward said, before providing a specific example.
Wolfe publicly has said he both hates and respects the Patriots. It’s hard not to wonder, given Ward’s words, whether Wolfe is the Broncos defender who wanted to do something nasty to Brady when they played in the AFC title game.
