Report: Broncos getting calls about trading T.J. Ward

Getty Images

We’ve seen several trades get completed over the last couple of days as teams put the finishing touches on their rosters for the 2017 season and there may be more to come before Saturday’s deadline to get to 53 players.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that one of the teams receiving calls is the Broncos. Per Rapoport, safety T.J. Ward is the subject of those calls and that the Broncos have “had trade conversations” about him.

There’s no word on the tenor of those conversations or if they have progressed to a place where a deal is likely. Ward missed some time with a hamstring injury this summer, but has returned to the field.

Ward is set to make $4.5 million in the final year of his contract with the Broncos. He’s slated to start alongside Darian Stewart and the Broncos have 2016 draft picks Will Parks and Justin Simmons in reserve.

  1. I might be more inclined to ask about Simmons than Ward, but I would not give him up if I were the Broncos.

    There seems to be an awful lot of trade activity going on this offseason/preseason. Wonder what’s driving it?

    Clearly don’t know what you’re talking about. Denver still has cap space and he is under contract this year for $5 million. It doesn’t make sense before Denver to sign him to an extension when he is 31 and Denver has some good back ups waiting to start.

    But thanks again Ty for once again constantly viewing Denver news. See you at the next Denver post!

  3. So, they lost Ware, Wynn, and now Ward from that D? That’s on the heels of the mass exodus of other players in recent years, too.

    Add that in to Elway’s poor drafts and I wouldn’t be shocked to see this team end up dead last in that division.

    Either SD or Denver.

    Horrible management by Elway. No one is going to trade much for a 30 year old Safety who is due a new deal either.

  8. It makes sense. The Broncos aren’t going anywhere this season and that defense is aging.

  9. Not that the Pats need help at safety, but I hope they trade him to the Pats so Gronk can get even in the locker room.

    Elway won’t deal him. He holds onto players too long

    All mediocre GMs do.

    They’re insecure because they’re mediocre teambuilders and drafters.

    Umm, this means it was leaked Ward may be available, so they sent out the word.

    Get it?

    Are you people honestly this obtuse?

    Maybe.

    But can they absorb the salary and do they want to toss the pick to rent an older Safety?

    Depends on the compensation Denver wants.

    For a 5th rder, or higher, sure.

    Put your money where your mouth is. I forgot your O Line sucks as well.

    Tell you what, I’ll make a bet and the loser leaves this board for a month:

    The Broncos will not make the playoffs and this will be part of the reason.

    Poor GM work.

  16. Did you guys not notice the article said that there are teams wanting to trade to get TJ Ward? It didn’t say that the Broncos were shopping Ward – there’s a difference. To simplify it – Team A calls John Elway and says “Hey, I have a defensive end – how about we trade him for TJ Ward?” Just because somebody is calling asking to trade doesn’t mean that he’s gone – just means that there are teams out there who would like to see if they can acquire his services via trade with Broncos.

    My GM has built teams that have made the Playoffs 8 years in a row, and 9 of the last 10.

    His mistake was hiring and retaining the wrong head coach.

    Why not just count your rings and stop being such a complete Richard?

    That report sounds a bit ‘managed’ for want of a better word, safe to say Denver is probably making the calls. And they should be, they are in good shape at safety.
