Safety T.J. Ward remains a free agent, and he’ll also remain free.

Via JoeBucsFan.com, all pending criminal charges against Ward have been dropped.

Ward had faced an allegation of felony marijuana possession and misdemeanor paraphernalia possession. There also was at one point an allegation that Ward had failed to show up in court in connection with the marijuana charge, but Ward’s lawyer insists that the allegation was false. Stephen Romine, who represents Ward, tells PFT that Ward “never failed to appear for anything,” and that law-enforcement officials “erroneously and inexplicably” alleged that Ward had failed to appear in court in October, when in fact the original charges were never filed until late December.

Ward signed with the Buccaneers after being cut by the Broncos shortly before the start of the regular season. He presumably will not face NFL discipline as a result of the incident.

The 31-year-old defensive back played an integral role in the Broncos team that won Super Bowl 50. He spent four years with the Browns before spending three years with the Broncos.

Last season, Ward appeared in 12 games, with four starts.

  1. In related news, Ward still faces future Karma penalties for that Dirty Low Down Rotten Cheap Shot on Gronkowski’s knee. Don’t think we have forgotten about that you wretched, vile, contemptible, loathsome, reprehensible, detestable, abject, disgraceful, insignificant, no good, worthless, low life.

    Lmaooo. Who’s we? You’re not on the team. I’m sure you can’t do anything about it.

    Apparently Ward isn’t on a team either and I hope it stays that way. The next time he makes the news it’ll be for breaking and entering. LMAOooo…..

    Besides, I said he faced Karma (….God, Karma, the Universe, etc take your pick) penalties. I never said I was issuing the penalties. Before you lyaooo, you should check your reading comprehension.

  4. Let’s not forget Gronkowski being the same with his disgusting wrestler body elbow drop on Tre’Davious White. Karma should work both ways…

    It’s true he shouldn’t have reacted that way, but you are confusing Gronkowski lashing out in frustration for the way he was being treated in a game where guys are constantly pushing and shoving after the whistle with the intentional destruction of a player’s knee joint as a matter of course in the game. Ward so much as said so afterward when he claimed he was “just doing my job”, because Gronkowski was a difficult player to stop and if he wasn’t able to do it physically himself, he had to find another way. It’s not an apples-to-apples comparison, and what Gronkowski did was somewhat blown out of proportion. It’s not justified and I don’t condone it, but it’s not like he did it regularly and he was clearly being mugged and targeted in that game. Players do sometimes get frustrated and lash out, but it’s generally nothing serious. Ward tried to make it sound like he was justified in destroying a player’s knee joint as just a part of doing his job. There was nothing Gronkowski had done other than play well to bring that on, and white played it up a bit for penalty points, and the possible suspension knowing they were playing again within 2 weeks. What Ward did, and his attitude about it, were reprehensible, and it’s dangerous to the players. It’s a career-threatening style of play and I don’t think other players appreciate it.

  6. Ok I’m not saying he’s not a huge problem or that he’s not down right dirty. But the horrible thing Gronkowski did, that could have ended up way worse. He easily could have paralyzed him. And it was the refs not calling it, since every player just about holds and pushes hoping to get away with it at some point. It does not make his action any better or any worse. Wrong is wrong.

  7. This old and boring Bronco fan is tired of seeing casual use of the weed ruining so many lives. It’s been 40 years since I’ve smoked it and 40 years since my last drink, so I’m not a stoned out hippie, I simply find it hypocritical for prosecutors and judges who smoke and drink at will to deny somebody else their vice of choice.
